Hi folks,

Working my way through some NSW id shield stamps and found the two items below:






These stamps were predominately in use from 1897 to 1913 but were used later after Australia had her own stamps as they were still valid.

The first one, from the shape of the border, looks like a Belgium railway stamp. The right side of the second one looks like a 'Paid All' marking but I've only seen these struck in violet from an earlier period. In any event, it looks more like an R than a P.

I'd appreciate if anyone could positively identify these markings.

Thanks folks

Bobby De La Rue - I'd suggest that the first one is upside-down with something like 5.30 PM at the end of the date line.

Thank you fairdinkumstamps. I think you're absolutely right! The benefit of a 2nd pair of eyes eh?

Having another look at the other stamp, the right side looks like the Sydney datestamp and the NSW obliterator overlapped.
