Just grabbed this from eBay.

People more clever than me will be able to overlay one on the other!

Thanks for your suggestions Rod222 and Bobby De La Rue.

I took a look at a suggestion from elsewhere and by comparing to a cover from the Phoenix Auctions site, I am satisfied that it is BUNGENDORE:

Nice work FDS !
So the "G" (D) had us fooled.
Postmarks Hmph.
Could have taken it as an "O" but never considered a "G"
Noted.
Only respite was the 10 letter arc format was correct.

This one is unusual - 'Tea Dealer' 1883 - does anyone have an example that shows the company name?

We need a tea dealer, in a street location ending in "T"
My first thought was Bushells.
Good Luck solving this one !

wiki
In 1883, Alfred Bushell opened the first tea shop in Australia in present-day Queensland. In 1884, the Cutten brothers established the first commercial tea plantation in Australia in Bingil Bay in northern Queensland.[2] And in 1899, Bushell's sons moved their enterprise to Sydney and began selling tea commercially, founding Australia's first commercial tea seller Bushell's Company.

Politician and tea merchant James Inglis was the first to introduce Indian and Ceylonese teas into the Australian colonies in the 1880s.

1899

Interesting information on Bushells - thanks Rod222.

At this stage my best guess as to the Tea Dealer is Wyatt Brothers (John and William II), tea merchants who were active in Sydney in 1883 and were located at 369 Pitt St.

There was an attempted burglary at the same premises in 1895, so they were around for a while.
Later documents indicate they had premises in Oxford Street.

They are also seen on this Victorian era coin - Liverpool, England:

It seems to fit all that is shown on the violet cancellation but it would be great if anyone has more of the top part on any of their stamps.

Agreed Rod.

I saw what I though was a double T and immediately thought of Pitt Street. Alas I don't have a full strike to show.

Since we're sleuthing, what about this one? I'm thinking it's Parramatta , but what is the company name?




SG watermark 40, so this dates it somewhere between 1882 and 1888.

Akin to climbing Everest,Bobby.
(Not withstanding FDS sleuthing, that was brilliant)

So what do you think is happening here ?
Are the stamps "postage and Revenue"?

A fairly expensive impost, on a receipt or so.
Perhaps a "Belt and Buckle" telegraph?

Most business Violet ovals, end with Ltd etc.

Indeed it is Rod!

I've had a look through the old directories of the period but without success.

Yes, at that time postage stamps could be used for revenue purposes.

Has me stumped.
Can it fit to the timeline, where it may have been used in any State?
Cannot be "R" for registration (has bars, only at top ?)
Looks like a peculiar "V" shape.
I was thinking also of the Victorian Barred "M D" but yours is too strong in font.
