Oh wow! Easy for you to say. Ha!

I thought that first letter might be a "Q"

You the man, Rod.

Linus the last letter of your Queanbeyan, you would swear that would not be a "Y"

Thank you, yes it does not look like a "Y" but you nailed it.

I have proof this statement is true, scanned below, from my collection:

Postmark says "SYDNEY JAIL"

Fool's gold!

That would be SHIP MAIL ROOM

Caveat: I have Ship Mail Room Melbourne, none of Sydney, so reduce my comment to "guess"

I didn't figure the inmates had their own post office.

Thanks for completing the circle with the rest of the story.

I discovered a barred-number cancel in my Australia horde today. I don't know which way to read it, so I scanned it twice. Where was this stamp cancelled? Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks in advance,
Linus

Linus,
Your barred numeral postmark looks to be 2100 of King Valley - rated RRR.

Nice find Linus.
Confirmed in 1983 "Australian Numeral Cancellations: A compendium"
H.M.Campbell, RDP., F.R.P.S.L.


Many common 1d stamps have cancels that sell for $100s. Victoria issued 2100 numeral postmarkers, between #1 (Melbourne) and #2100 (King Valley - issued November 1906). Of these 2100 numbers - despite an army of collectors scouring the earth over several generations - some 51 numbers have NEVER been sighted.

Postmark Sales of 2100 $150 and $354

Two other examples of Rod's ship room cancel, along with two other types.

Thanks for sharing your time and knowledge of Australian stamps with me.

Nice stamps, and cancels, Bobby.

How ironic, that the first barred numeral postmark I discover in my own collection is the last number, 2100.

Rod, this thread is getting me "fired up" to finally research all those Aussie stamps I have accumulated over many years. I have a lot to learn. but man, this hobby is fun!

Today I discovered this nice Victoria 712 barred numeral postmark from Nagambie, Victoria in my big box of Australia mixture I recently bought at the Stamp Out Cancer Auction in Rock Island, Illinois.
