Hi folks,

Does anyone know where this cancellation was applied? It appears to have been struck on arrival (wherever that was) over the Sydney duplex postmark.



I initially thought it was English but I can't find anything resembling this in my literature.

Any help would be much appreciated

Are you sure?
Could it be a barred V ?

Barred A exists for Colombo (Ceylon) but differing design.
Barred A exists in Western Australia (Vasse), again, diff design.

Looks like a Type 35 Allahabad (India) circle bar cancel.

How common, then, was it to strike again on arrival? Was that done elsewhere than in India?

Thank you Rod and perf12

I thought it was a V at first too Rod. Black cancellations on black stamps eh?

EMaxim raises an excellent question!

I found this site too.

Opinion.
A receival or transit strike, not common, but occurs, esp when considering the vast numbers of mail hand processed, usually struck when a stamp was noticed as uncancelled, rarer when struck twice in differing countries.
An EFO.

Make that a Barred "V"

Indeed!

My two other examples. I've little doubt the first one is a redirect. The second one speaks for itself!

It is unusual that a type 35 barred cancel would be used as
a receiving cancel.A normal CDS would of been placed on the back of the cover.Perhaps the NSW stamp was part of a multi franked cover and it was redirected with a British India stamp next to it and the type 35 was applied at least twice.One landing on the NSW stamp.??
In that case it would be a scarce stamp with that cancel....

Yet another interesting facet of the hobby I've learned about. And something else to watch for! Thanks to all.
