this cover recently came into my possession ... not up on early British stamps so maybe a #78 and two #79's. The back has 1867 written on it as a date but I'm skeptical. Mostly bought it for the address and the postmark. Not finding that postmark in the database. Any thoughts from the group?

This is Wells-next-the-sea on the north Norfolk coast, not to be confused with Wells in Somerset. Both are nice places to visit but only one has a cathedral.

Earliest possible date for your cover is AFTER October 1880. Cancel type is also from around that date...first used 1879.

I wonder if the "My 1867 in South America" refers to something that was kept in the envelope?

Nice cover, showing a somewhat hard life.
I particularly liked the address search.

Wells Norfolk is scantily addressed on the database, yours would make it 4 that are not listed.
I seem to be able to see a "7" in the year date of your Squared Circle.

The later 1907 squared circle of Wells Norfolk
(how on ever, did the clerk manage to Pmk half a squared circle impression?)

Looks like it says "my will" a perfectly normal thing to keep in an envelope

It is possible another card or cover's corner was on top of this card when the clerk postmarked it.
