Hi fairdinkumstamps,

That's a late use of a Sydney dumb obliterator.

Wmk SG40, perf. 11x12 comb is it?

Your top right stamp is almost identical Bobby.

I gotta tell you, I was just about to call it a non postmark,
the "V" shape looked absurd, but now we can see the bars do converge
when the hammer is worn.

Looking for help with this one please.

The closest I could find is NASHUA but the spelling is reading NASHAU. I have a list that spells it with AU but an online search only shows UA.

Hi Tasnaki,

The only place I could find that might be a match is Marshall in Victoria.

It is NASHAU New South Wales

From my 20,000 database. (The only result with text string SHAU)
I am assuming there exists a mis-spelt cancelling hammer
for, as you said, NASHUA

Perhaps a reconnoitre through Prestige auctions may confirm?

"Page not found"

Rod222 Fantastic work, I wondered if that was a possibility and you have now confirmed it. The March 1908 date is clearly an early strike.

Mossgreen had one for auction in 2016 with $75 reserve.

Hi Tasnaki,
yes I was ruminating on that,
Error in use 8 years 6 years, smaller town, what would be the survival rate of good Pmks?

Your price suggests the answer.

Great find Rod

Hopson & Tobin have a date range of 1908 to 1914 so yes, it's a very early use!

What has me perplexed,
is the 1910 impression shows an ARC based design,
(Also periods between Year Month Day in the date slug)
yours does not. (albeit there is a tiny spot of ink at end)

Ergo, they misspelt the hammer twice? or was there 2 hammers sent / in existance?
