Any suggestions on the Postmark, Bobby?


It's a London Inland cancel as NSK has said, but I wouldn't like to say what the numeral is.

Nope:

3: Pr = 1%
5: Pr = 99%
9: Pr = 0%

(9 is not listed with 2 bars above and below the diamond, nine besides the diamond, with the 5th aligning with the corners and all thick.)

Compare 3.0 and 5.N. Almost certainly the latter. 9 does not have the correct bars.

Intriguing route to ID
I could see both 9 and 5
Looks like 5 gets the gong.

Thanks all.

So im ready to put this one in the box for later - much later. However I've been trying to Plate. I think its Alph 1, but the shorter bottom on the horizontal L has me stumped. And the stuck left check letter doesnt help.

Curious - LL I think. I've looked at the DL's also. I was thinking LL Plate 50 or 59 but have nixed them both. Ideas?

Alph 1 , yes?

Might be a D instead of L at left.

Hi Stamps4Life,

I looked at the DL and LL stamps for alphabet 1 and couldn't find a satisfactory match. The Ds look too big in the imprimatur sheets compared to your stamp.

Whatever the left letter is, it fits comfortably in the square. It looks like it's centered to the left and well centered vertically.

You'd have to check every L stamp from plates 46 to 131 which will be time consuming, to say the least.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Yes, a toughie. Tks for looking. I'm going to have one more go at it. If I get something I'll report back.

So I squared up the negative image and measured 6+ 4+ 3+ 8+

I left the b measurement as a wildcard as I was not sure of it. Spot on a,c and d and b returned 5+

Plate 72

Yes, the LL plate 72 is a very good candidate
