Nope,
could not crack this one....

Hello Rodney,

This is a difficult one ! have you tried to match it up with any dies in my Ceylon catalogue?

I have looked at it from a different angle in that it is a very poor punch of the die.
Poor punches are very common on C20 "CB" also the date of the stamp issue would fit.
and it looks to be a 10 hole letter "C"
Both C20 & C21 are practically identical except for the stops (in your stamp there could well be a stop after the letter "B" ?

I am sorry that I cannot be more exact, but this is the die I would plumb for, as there is no CP die recorded for Ceylon.

Best regards.

Jeff T.
