hello all. hope I have got this right, can someone tell me why the perfin is upsidedown . the perfin is from the town of saint gallen , from the firm of swiss volksbank. that is all I know. cheers ken.
If there was a hand punching machine in use, and the punching guy had some beers for lunch, there could be endless different positions, and double or even more perforations on one single stamp.
I have a collection of aprox. 30000 worldwide perfins (15000 Austrian ones), but I never take any notice of the punching orientation. I once had a talk with the editor of the new Austrian catalog, and he agreed with me.
