Album of mostly PPCs with an array of instructional handstamps including 'NO ADDRESS', 'NO POST TOWN', 'IRREGULARLY/POSTED' and a very scarce group of 'MISSENT TO/...' marks including of 'MAUDE' (with commecial perfin), 'BUNINYONG', 'BRUNSWICK', 'PRAHRAN', 'IVANHOE', 'PRESTON', 'HEIDELBERG', 'TAMLEUGH WEST' (!, fair only), 'RAYWOOD', 'WICKLIFFE', 'WHEELERS HILL', 'MURTOA', 'PORT FAIRY', 'WYCHEPROOF', 'SUNBURY', 'SNAKE VALLEY' & 'GOLDEN SQUARE', etc, many fine to very fine strikes, condition variable. A very desirable lot.
Batch of PPCs plus several registered Tatts covers all with 'MONEY ORDER' or 'MO & SB' datestamps including a few scarcer types, also 1873 OHMS entire with the rare 17˝mm 'MOO/MELBOURNE' cds within, condition variable but generally fine.
Modest collection of Barred Numerals with some very fine strikes & complete duplexes, completely unchecked by us, plus a useful range of 1860s-1870s Melbourne duplexes on pair or on piece. With an almost as-new copy of "The Numeral Cancellations of Victoria" by Hugh Freeman & Geoff White.
(Qty few 100)
BARRED NUMERALS: Attractively presented collection in four large albums covering 1200+ of the 2100 post offices, numerous offices with multiple types including a good range of scarcer duplex cancels, some coloured strikes, many fine to superb strikes throughout but care is required because optimism has won over scepticism in many cases. Better items include Rated RRR '105' of Goldborough, Type 7 '148', duplex '268' (numeral only), Type 1 '289', Type 3 '526', Type 1 '545', '549', '601', '914', Type 2 '1056', Type 1 'M96', 'MC/8', Type 2 '1238', 'MCCCC/77', 'MCCCC/85', duplex '1533' (numeral only), Type 1 '1760' in violet & a superb '1883'; and RRRR Type 1 '103' (light but obvious), '763' (?), Type 2 '1048', Type 1 'MC/16', Type 1 'MC/24', superb Type 1 'MCCCC/31' & '1935'. A good basis for expansion.
(Qty 2000 approx)
BARRED NUMERALS: 5mm high '8' with 11 horizontal bars of Portland, two very fine to superb partly overlapping strikes on Laureates 6d. Rated RRRRR: unique and unrecorded by Hugh Freeman & Geoff White. This marking is of the same type as the similar Type 3 '9' of Beechworth, of which two examples are now recorded. Hugh Freeman has agreed that it is genuine & an exciting new discovery.
Travelling Post Offices: Duplicated selection mostly on PPCs plus some covers including a passbook envelope & a few municipal types notably STO Envelope 1d for Shire of Euroa, etc, a few scarcer types including octagonal 'DOWN TRAIN/MG2' & similar '/.../MG16' and Commonwealth type 'TPO 6/DOWN...' & 'TPO 9/DOWN...', a few 'ENG MAIL TPO/IN...' on items from overseas, condition variable.
