I have many early Great Britain (commonwealth too) that I am getting ready to attempt to sell. I don't want to add revenue cancels to my stated catalog value. So, does a stamp with revenue cancel have any value? Say a stamp valued in Scott used at $100.00. Would the catalog value with revenue cancel be 50% of that or 25%, maybe?

maybe 5 to 10% ,color and shape are the two major clues .Surprised if your getting more than 30% of catalog on British Colonies unless it is a MUST have stamp for a collector .

I would be satisfied to get 10-15% cv for my collection. I just want to fair and not add to much for a stamp with a revenue cancel. But I don't know how to recognize a revenue cancel.Any advise?

Often handwritten or oval-shaped, perhaps in purple.

The 2d and 2/6 both look postal to me. I prefer not to guess on the STAINES, the 10d is likely a parcel cancel.

The 2d and 6d are postal, the 2d has a London postmark and the 6d is a parcel postmark.

Staines is just 13 away from my house.

I agree the 10d is probably a postal parcel postmark but I'm not sure.

I'm not keen on the 2/6 with the faint red cancellation in the background. It looks like a fiscal usage to me.

Hi ronv,

These all look postally used to me:

1. Multiple strikes of a parcels postmark, maybe BRADFORD?

2. London R registered postmark

3. Newspaper Branch NPB postmark

4. Belfast postmark

5. London postmark

The perfin on the 4d stamp appears to be W.H.S/&S. and is probably from W H Smith & Sons.

The 2 shilling and 6 penny KE VII stamp looks like it has a registered postmark. Nigelc: my family has a long history in and around Staines. I had several aunts, uncles, cousins that lived there. my mother worked in a dry cleaners there once, my brother was evacuated to Colnbrook, near Staines early in WWII and I lived there for a very short time. Nice part of the world, I supped many a pint in The Packhorse pub.

Hi waddsbadds,

That's a lovely story about Staines. Thanks for sharing it.

I think the Packhorse is still there but now has a much more complicated name, the "Mercure London Staines-upon-Thames Hotel" (!)

(Staines changed its name to Staines-upon-Thames back in 2012 but of course everyone still calls it "Staines".)

I'll have a look for the Packhorse/Mercure the next time I'm in the town.

The pub I know best in Staines is The Bells in Church St. It's very friendly and does very good food. I wonder if you remember that one at all?

If the Packhorse is where I think it is, The Bells is just a short walk round the corner towards St Mary's Church and the park.
