I dont know anything about these cancels but am curious if anyone can ID the middle stamp Maltese Cancel - town, type, etc. ? It was shown in a video presentation of a lot in the last Harmers International Auction and im unable to get a better screen shot from the clip online. I ended up winning the lot, but when I got the stock book, this stamp was missing so I cant provide a better scan / shot. Here is the video if interested:

Sorry, o forgot to add the pic I have!!



Tks Wm

This could help. There are a lot of varieties out there and your images are a bit small from here.

He's flipping those pages so fast, maybe it just went flying to the floor and no one actually pinched it?

ive been looking at some reference material I have, but none includes Crosses. Tks.

Im guessing its not worth waiting for an answer form the auction house as to the location of the stamp? Does it look like a "7" on it?

My best guess would be London.

See the first London image on p43 of the QV specialised catalogue.

I have the 16th edition.

If you have the 2020 edition, look for the page with the Maltese Cross illustrations

Hummm…. There are cross illustrations on pp. 35,36 and 57. I did look before replying, but seeing as the pages I mention fall under the Mulready and Letter Sheet section, I thought I confirm the catalog edition as to make sure I was looking where you wanted me see. There are more on 155 and 157 and 100 and 101. Perhaps page 101 ?

The picture is not clear enough (too small). What makes you think it is a distinct Maltese Cross?

I see similarities to both the London and Brighton MCs. The rather compressed diamond that appears rather off centre would favour the latter. But I am not convinced it is either as the curves of he ends of the arms of the cross would favour London and not Brighton.

So in addition to forgetting to post a picture in the original opening, somehow I botched the editing too... i.e., I dont think its anything special - but I also dont know - just asking. I dont know anything about these. But, I also dont have the stamp as it was not present when I received the stock book from Harmers. It was in the online lot presentation, but not in what I received. So I in addition to asking if anyone could ID it, was also trying to determine if its worth worrying about. Guessing not - its 1 stamp missing out of 100's.

Hard for me to tell too based on the picture I have. What I originally thought might be a "7" overprint looks now to be the 11 o'clock outer line ending towards the inside on another blemish??? Anyhow, I think time to move on. As previously mentioned by just-fella, Brighton looks good so does London.
