Bailey,

SCF Stamp Forum 101
Please try to offer a thread title that has meaning, and assists other students in the future.
"advice on postmarks....." helps no one, and personally, I do not like answering, because the trouble I go to to respond, is just wasted, and gets lost in the 1000's of useless titles.

2. Attempt to offer a scan of the entire cover, and backstamps so we can get the whole story, one does not get a Diamond appraised from 7 feet away. It's the same with stamps.

Right that said (don't be embarrassed, you are not to know, as you are a beginner, but it helps to make you an all around better contributor)

Right,
the REPTON Postmark is either Australian or England I cannot tell from your scans.

If it is England then it is an undiscovered Postmark, and we are awaiting a scan of the Postmark, none has surfaced thus far.

If it is New South Wales I cannot see a Duplex 215 listed in my database.

Cheers

PS: Try and change your thread title to something like

"Postmark : Repton query."

The Postmark "Philatelic Congress of Great Britain"
is referred to as a "PICTORMARK" (Pictorial Postmark)
It has the Pmk details and a Picture of the "Maltese Cross" Pmk of the early days. (Based some say on the TUDOR ROSE.)

The green image alongside is referred to as a "CACHET" (Cashay)
Nice cover !


The PERTH Pmk, and the one above it, are "Machine Slogan Postmarks"
The envelope passes through an automatic postmarker, sometimes the cover slips, and makes another pass, like yours, with 2 impressions.

No problems Bailey,
nice to hear philately, takes your mind off other important things.

Shall address those tomorrow, Mr. sun has began to revist us, here in the West, so I garden in the afternoons to thaw out, and erecting a shade sail.

I generally take a bit of a rest from Stamps during summer, too much cycling and gardening to resist...........

The Repton duplex is from the UK. Those 1d pink envelopes were used for many years. The duplex is common.
