Yours might be 1396 of Rydalmere.


Not illustrated in Freeman either, but I can see the pattern.

Thanks.

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'.


Wow. That is extraordinary.

Definitely a 1396 of Rydalmere.

Extraordinary that it's not illustrated in the book, given its rarity rating.

Off the top of my head, I'm not aware of any inverted numerals in any device.

FDS's advice on looking at sequences is very wise, but like almost everything else in this hobby, it's still not a 100% guarantee (yes 856, 1320 and 1409, I'm looking at you).

You really do have some great stamps.
Rarely seen in such a variety.
Bravo! to whomever collected them.

Never seen the three ring oval 84 cancellation before.

Indeed, but with respsect, yours as a duplex, is just the ants pants.

TENTERFIELD
A song about Peter Allen's Grandfather

The late George Woolnough
Worked on High Street and lived on Manners
Fifty- two years he sat on his verandah
And made his saddle
And if you had questions about sheep or flowers or dogs
You just asked the saddler
He lived without sin
They're building a library for him

Chorus
Time is a traveler
Tenterfield Saddler
Turn your head
Ride again jackaroo, think I see kangaroo up ahead

...and etc

The trimmed (previously perforated) Five Pence diadem stamp has a couple of strikes of the Sydney 20 circular datestamp (i.e. not a 'numeral cancellation') and it appears someone may have tried to pass it off as the far more expensive imperforate 5d by trying to match it to a circle on the 'piece'.

If so, apart from the obviously non-contemporaneous postmark, they have neglected to continue any other parts of the postmarks onto the piece!

The '47' is just an illusion created by stray ink.

I haven't checked images but the laureate postmark is probably one of the 'dumb' cancellers.

Thankyou for the feedback
The "47" is very defined - and stray ink doesn't make sense to me.
I respect you advice and will continue to question my eyesight
Which is failing daily
Thankyou
Much appreciated
