Rod,

Can you post a photo or send via e-mail? That would help a lot in scouring the depths of the Internet.

Hi Postmaster,

I shall do as soon as I can.
David has the scan on Stampboards, I am not a member,
I cannot search Stampboards unless I register, which I shall not.

I'll email David to send me a scan.

Thanks for offering your help.

Postmaster.
Aha! found it through a circuitous route.

I have vague recollections of having seen it once before in 16 years of collecting. The violet ink is a unusual colour for Australia.
The date is what is amazing.

The Wmk identifies it as Sc# 42 1915 and onwards.
1 shilling blue green. ($225 / $30)

This "Timestamp" type postmark became ubiquitous in Western Australian philately, in the 1980's, the early date is the enigma / curiosity.

Sadly, Postmaster, I do not think the image will help you very much.

I spent the whole afternoon searching.

Notes: Faint "PARCEL POST" text
outer ring is segmented by lines indicating time, (usually) the head of an arrow indicates the time it passed the PO staff, pointing at a line,
one can see "9" "10" and "11" in the ring shown.
The lines indicating the quarter hour.

Date appears to be 6th May 1920.

One would be drawn to think, that due to the high value Kangaroos oft being used for Parcels, why this Pmk is not more often met with.

Thought bubble: Perhaps this Pmk is an adjunct to a registration requirement.

After exhaustive searching I believe the Violet timestamp to be an adjunct impression, (A cachet) possibly from a Parcel Post tag from some sort of business, or Government body.

Prestige Philately has an item that may point towards the usage, the only other query, is why the stamp has not evidenced a Post Office postmark as well.

It certainly explains why we do not see many examples of this type of mark.
