Hi all, I am new to this community, and I am also a fairly new stamp collector. I came across this late laureate Victorian Stamp. I have never seen a postmark like this, however.

It appears to read "Money or..."

Any info would be greatly appreciated
Cheers

Lovely Stamp!
Not that often seen, I am assuming the location is shown at bottom of CDS, Possibly STAWELL etc ?

Seen on King George V Sideface. Unknown Location.

Western Australia had Boxed, or Oval "Money Order Office" strikes.
Also CDS (Circular Date Stamps) with "MOO" Money Order Office.

I am not conversant with that stamp, wonder what that ring is, betwixt JA and 29

2 eBay offerings Victoria 1917 and 1923

It looks like it is supposed to be the ribbons, tying the Laurels.

We can see the ring of the Laurel Ribbons, from the 1866 Issue
engraved by Frederick Grosse.

The 1901 was modified from this stamp. ("Postage" added etc)
Unknown engraver, possibly Samuel Reading.

Samuel Reading
The engraver of the original master die of the Kangaroo.
