Can I have assistance in identifying this cancel please?


Sorry 64idgaf, there's just not enough detail there for me to identify the cancel.

My gut feeling is that it's not a NSW in concentric ovals cancel (which would date it from 1891 to 1895), but a Freeman type 5, numeral unidentified.

Thanks Bobby,

Does the corollary follow, Freeman 5's are Duplexes?


Care to Tackle this one?

Three type 5s there Rod: 2 Parramatta, 179 Balmain and 12 Cowra respectively.

The last is a packet boat cancel, from Wellington NZ.

Socked on the nose on a block of four, this one looks disappointingly inconclusive until you see the clue. Anyone like to solve it?

It looks like a duplex cancel due to the black mark in the bottom left hand corner of the block?

Nevertheless, it takes your knowledge, to match the two, Bobby.
I doubt I would have got Inverell

Working with 3 known clues, a 3-0-0-3 killer last letter L, and 13?

One of the great irritations with Postmarks, is the lack of a "reverse order name" search.
I have no way to discriminate a name with a "last L"

As Bobby De La Rue confirmed, the postmark is Inverell.

The clues that give it away, as mentioned by Rod222, are the barred numeral type, three digits 13_ and the last letter L from the datestamp.

Then referring to Hugh Freeman's 'The Numeral Cancellations of New South Wales', there are only two options in the 130's with last letter L.
They are 135 of Byron (moved to Inverell in 1859) or 137 of Mossgiel (from 1870 on).

Looking at the last numeral, we can see that it is more like a 5 than a 7 and, finally, Freeman shows that there were only ray cancellers used at Mossgiel so this barred numeral strike must be 135 of Inverell.

I have been sorting through an old envelope of NSW numerals. Among them I find this, looks to be '1356' Blackman's Point. It is 4R rated and not imaged in Freeman's second book. The inverted 5 is distinctive. Have I identified it correctly or am I making a rookie mistake?

64idgaf,

Take a look at the 1390's in the book - the 9's in that sequence have a flat lower part, making them appear like your 'inverted 5'.

Yours might be 1396 of Rydalmere.
