Can anybody help me identifying these stamps please?
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance. :)

I've worked out the far left middle row is a Natal stamp from 1870s.

The bottom Green stamp (very nice) is a "Circular Delivery Company" issue.
Do not throw this one away, otherwise I'd like to have it.

See here:

Counting Left to Right, top to bottom...........
1,2,3,4,7 and 9 are all "Mutilated Stationery" "Cut Squares, collectable, but no particular value other than personal collecting passion.

No8 I have no idea, but possibly a very interesting RPO cancellation, ?? Station.

Circular Delivery Companies

For thirty years after the great postal reforms of 1840, the British
Post Office turned a deaf ear to appeals for a reduced rate of
postage for printed papers and circulars.

And so private enterprise stepped in. In 1865 Robert Brydone
formed the first of the Circular Delivery Companies, undertaking
to deliver circulars within the boundaries of Edinburgh and Leith
for a farthing each.

The service was successful, but when Brydone started extending
his operations to London and other cities, and there was even a
hint of a National Circular Delivery Company, the Post Office
instituted legal proceedings as a result of which the companies'
activities were suppressed as an infringement of the State postal
monopoly.

In their four-year career the companies issued various local
stamps; these are an interesting specialist study but in genuine
used condition, especially on cover, are rare.

As a direct result of the companies' enterprise, the Post Office
heeded the demand for cheaper postage in 1870, and in that
year the first d. stamp was issued to meet the new reduced
rate for printed papers.

Stamps 1,2,3 are Inland Postcard Mutilated stationery
(Your offered images are so poor, I cannot see Her Majesty's forehead)
so guess around 1878

Stamp 4 inland Postcard Mutilated stationery February 1875. Halfpenny Brown.

Stamp 9
Postcard Inland Mutilated Stationery 1d Carmine
May 1890 Special card for the Guildhall Postal Jubilee
(Needs confirmation, my reference does not show "blued paper")

Unable to find "Hooded" postmark of that type London EC (East Central)


Update:
1892 Lettercard

Hi Nigel,
Thanks, that one is a "time at top" which differs.
The orginal poster's example is CODE 12 over "2A"
I was perusing the Pmk database until my eyes glazed over.
I'll return, as when sanity does.

Also could not find Duplex N over 17, I presume a London hammer.
I think I am "search weary"

Crown and S G & L , can you assist?

Thanks Jill.
What a stunning display of Philately.

I'll have to revisit, I note the original Poster's example looks like white paper,
maybe not Postcard, Maybe Newspaper wrapper.

Hi Rod,

The N over 17 duplex is a head office postmark from the London N District.

Hi Nigel,
I am gobsmacked, N17 not listed in the database....a new discovery.

There is N10, N19, N21, N23, N13/21, N23
I'll email it to Allan.
Barred 3-2-2-1-2-2-2

Finally jagged it, from Parmenter.
Dubus Type 5c
Once again, foiled by the Pmk impression.
I took the last letter "N" to be part of LONDON....Not so
It is LONDON-N

Hi Rod,

There are lots of other numbers known, e.g. for the N district head office alone, N over each number 15 to 30 exists and together they used various styles and numbers of bars (with many numbers existing in multiple styles).

It was a similar case for the older single killer postmarks with bars, with N over numbers 1 to 14 (and also 21).

Hi Nigel,
yes getting to learn Parmenter.
I also note there are Town CDS's with accompanying Provincial killers "N"
Very strange.

Nigel,
any idea if there is dedicated literature on British "Station" Pmks?
or are they included in any other database anywhere?
I have the TPO, but stations are not included.

Hi Rod,

There's a useful list of station postmarks in Collect British Postmarks.

This is in chapter 13 in my 8th edition.

Pass the Dunce hat, please, I'll go stand in the corner.
Thanks Nigel.

The Original Poster, station Pmk, looks like it begins with OS??
I thought that would be easy to crack, only 3 listed in my 4th edition,
none suitable.
