Thank you for those preliminary id's! Right now they are tucked away in an envelope, awaiting their turn to be sorted and mounted.

Hi, Fairdinkum:

Are you able to help me out with this NSW cancel on an unwatermarked, 1865 One Penny?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Steve,

A watery 400 of Kangaloon, rated RR. Amazingly, the illustration in Freeman's book shows this postmark on the same type of stamp!

Nice find

Hi Steve,

Adding to Bobby's identification of the postmark and RR rating, Hugh Freeman explains the rating system as follows in his excellent 2017 book, 'The Numeral Cancellations of New South Wales'.:

The ratings "reflect the numbers originally recorded in the five major collections surveyed in the 2000-2010 period, plus the new arrivals on the philatelic scene since publication of the 2012 edition. Again, it is important to understand that, whilst the ratings are a reflection of those quantities that may exist, they are not actual."

Under this system, RR represents "11 to 14 recorded".

Happy to help Steve.

For the benefit of the thread, Hugh Freeman's rating system is as follows:

NNR = Number Not Recorded
RRRRR = 1 to 2 recorded
RRRR = 3 to 6 recorded
RRR = 7 to 10 recorded
RR = 11 to 14 recorded
R = 15 to 19 recorded
SS = 20 to 30 recorded
S = 31 to 49 recorded
Not Rated = 50 plus recorded

R = rare and S = scarce



NB: I don't know if the rating system for other states is the same as I do not have the literature.
