Cut-down cancellers were used in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory in the 1930's to 1950's. One or two letters would be left per the images shown.

They carry no particular value, but I'm fascinated, and have a range from A to Y. Please let me know if you have any or come across any!

Jubilee,
I have "Relief" cancellers of other types, from Australia,
or do you wish this thread only for "cut down" hammers?

Just the cutdowns thanks Rod. I'm curious to research just how many variants there are

This may show the known range?
Possibly available on loan from your local Philatelic Library
(I recall you are in NSW)

Good Luck Jubilee.

I'm sure it's very useful, but I don't visit or patronise that board
