Not a squared circle but looks rather suspect to me?

Coming up for auction this week with Est $1000 at Millennium.

What do other think of the cancel?

"02" Date looks hand drawn to me!

Here are some reference copies:

I couldn't find a clear 1902 strike, and didn't have any Decembers at all. (It would be handy to see if that misshapen E in DE is constant.)

One thing struck me: I came across 20 or 25 of these in a quick check. The scan shows the nicest ones.

None of the strikes I have are upright on the stamp.

Thanks Greg.

Yours are all clearly kosher based on angle of strikes etc, and origin. The crispness and placement of the one I posted made me suspicious.

It may well have been a fluke clear perfectly placed strike, and the lettering does look pretty consistent with yours. 8)

It does look too good to be true. Notice that even the best of mine are smudgy. A CTO or favour cancel, perhaps?

I don't qualify as a cancel expert, but a few observations:

- It's not a "perfect" strike, there is a little bit of smudging at the top

- It could have been struck on a solid parcel containing something like books for example, while the others could have been struck on a less firm base

- The cancel is an earlier date, and the others could be showing wear on the hammer

- The stamp appears to have a fault - a scrape at the right of the value

For what it's worth. :)

Yes, I did notice that little detail.

One of those in a "20 stamps from South Australia" lot on eBay a few months back fetched almost $1,000, though the seller hadn't noticed it. the seller must have wondered what was going one. It wasn't nearly as pretty as the Millennium one.

I keep checking bulky Aussie states lots in local auctions, and that's one of the stamps I always look for. Like many Aussie rarities, it isn't mentioned in Scotts.

By the way, I notice that the earliest known postmark on that stamp is DE 20 02. That is, the copy that is now on sale.

Thanks, Kris!

Tonight I'm playing with a cover I bought at a stamp show last year. (Rick at the Vance Auctions booth smiled as I approached. "I've been saving something for you," he said. He reached under the table and brought out this cover.)

Image

Image

A few things about the cover:

-- I'm not sure I would have accepted the OS overprint on the bottom stamp as genuine, if it hadn't been attached to the top one and on cover.

-- The earliest recorded date for the Moonta squared circle is given as 1884 in Overton, but I believe that is considered to be a typo for 1886. This cancel is from January 1885, making Overton's 1884 date look awfully good.

-- The reason I bought the cover is the Kadina Railway TPO cancel. Rather oddly, the cancel measures 24.5 cm (whether measured side to side or top to bottom). All the reference books say it should be 23 cm. The only illustration of the cancel I can find is the hand-drawn one in Tony Presgrave's TPO book. Tony? Neville? David? Anyone? Do you have another strike we can compare to this one?

By the way, what's the route here? Port Lincoln --> Ship across Spencer Gulf --> Moonta --> Train from on Kadina line to Adelaide?

I just looked at Tony's book again. The schedule for the Kadina Railway was

leave Adelaide 7:40 am, arrive Moonta 3:03 pm
leave Moonta 6:30 am, arrive Adelaide 1:51 pm

Assuming the service each way was daily (and it seems likely that it was), that means there had to be two trains. And presumably each had a TPO car. And thus there would be two Kadina Railway hammers, one on each train. So the 23 mm and 24.5 mm discepancy might make some sense.

another beauty Greg!

amazing how much more of a complete story such covers/entires provide. just think how many covers like that had their stamps removed with all those backstamps and info lost to the garbage bin...

on the pervious page of this thread I posted a pick of a normal Kadina strike on newspaper wrapper so is great to see the Kadina Railaway TPO strike

Greg, you seem to have a good collection of ERD's or at least very early/possible earliest recorded dates. perhaps a scan or two of your ERD's would make a good new thread or addition to this one. could be a good way to get them in the archives and promote wider discussion on what dates other folks have squirrelled away.

For those interested in the less common squared cancels, I quickly fished these out of the first few pages of the recent nice finds. I still have to look at them more closely and measure diameters, establish dates, etc. I had to go through the current dealer's stockbook fairly quickly as I have had it for three weeks already.

The ones shown are: ALFORD, ALBERTON RAILWAY, ALBERT HILL, BRIGHTON(needs checking), CALTOWIE, HADDON, ADELAIDE RAILWAY, AND 2 CURRAMUKA (both need ckecking closely)

It certainly is not common. It's APPILA-YARROWIE. I think that Greg would be interested in the date of that one if he can see the year better than I can.

Yep, 1907. Known used 1903 - 1915, so not an unexpected date.

What gets me excited in this batch is the two identical copies of the quite hard to find Type 3 Adelaide Railway. They are only known used in 1911. Your two February (6? 8?) 1911 strikes are the earliest I know of. Mine is dated March 2X 11, with the second digit of the date struck off the edge of the stamp.

Back to my problems with Kadina Railway. With no comparison copies available to me yet, I'm trying to logically think through whether there would have been two TPO cars (thus two hammers) or just one. Martin Walker's book says, "The mails and TPO sorters changed trains at Hamley Bridge as the Adelaide to Hamley Bridge and Hamley Bridge to Kadina lines were different gauges."

So we have one train (or possibly two trains) on the Adelaide-Hamley Bridge track doing this:

Leave Adelaide 7:40 am Arrive HB 9:25 am
Leave HB 12:07 pm Arrive Adelaide 1:51 pm

And then TWO trains on the other gauge track doing this:

Leave Kadina 6:30 am Arrive HB 11:55 am
Leave HB 9:40 am Arrive Kadina 3:03 pm

I can't see how they do that with just one postmark hammer. Of course, just because there had to be more than one doesn't mean they were all squared circles. And there's a type 27 single-ring cancel known used 1883-1892.

Interestingly, the squared circle is known with gang #s 2 and 4, and the single ring with gang #s 2, 3, and 6.

Both stamps came in the same old album, as did 10 WADNAMINGA, some of which I previously scanned and posted. There were other multiples as well. For example, while I know that CRYSTAL BROOK is a common cancel, there was a massive amount (out of proportion) with this cancellation.

I thought this quite odd as well. Could it be that the original collector knew someone living in these towns?

It always interesting to wonder by the postmaster would strike the two stamps on the right hand side when he had all the space on the left ?

He struck them three times, never bothering to ink his hammer. Clumsy and lazy, I guess. Should we report him to the South Australian postal authorities?

Here's one that has me wondering:

Image

Overton and Cox both list Dawesley as 25 mm. My copy is 23 mm. As well, mine has only 2 corner bars, which is typical of the really early types -- but the postmark is dated 1910.

I don't have any other strikes of this postmark to compare with. Is there a 25 mm type as well, or are the catalogues in error?

I notice, looking at the scan, that the postmark looks quite a bit off round. Is it simply wider than it is high?

Anyway, I'd love to see scans of other strikes of this is people have any.

Kadina Railway Squared Circles

Post by pres »

Greg,
Re your query of 10 Feb, I know its a while since I checked this thread. There had to be two "hammers" as you call them and the mail sorters took the instrument with them when they changed trains. I only had one example of the squared circle in my collection, it was a very poor strike, but clear enough to be able to make a tracing of it which was used in the book. I did not make a photocopy of the collection as it was when I sold it either, something I have regretted ever since!. I have a couple of earlier photocopies of the collection but they were before I got that particular mark.

Hindley Street perhaps?

A main street in downtown Adelaide where I have been all weekend. :D

I imagine there was a PO there in this era? A pretty appalling scan but it might be that?

Yes the postmark is common, but the interest is in the other markings.

The card has the stamps on the face and it has been treated as unpaid and therefore taxed. Port Germein to France is a nice destination, a little out of the ordinary.

Don't write the card off as a waste, for the postal historian it has some value, probably a bit more than the $2 you paid for it, but it won't buy you many drinks!

At small post offices like that, they often used the postmark hammer for pounding in fence posts.

Out of interest when did REAL postal use of SC's continue until?

These came from an estate lot today's in a kid's album.

A quite superb 9d 3rd Roo, and a Bridge that must of course be 1932 vintage - possibly also Aberdeen?:

Last date I have in my collection is a Polda squared circle from Feb 11, 1953.

Yes, they are both Aberdeens. Thrifty Scots, using their postmark hammers until they break?

Thanks, Neville. So the diameter should read 23 rather than 25? Or is it off-round?

Hi Neville!

I seem to remember you having an even later Polda than mine? My last Polda cover is Feb 11 53.

By the way, did you notice my gibbering about Kadina Railway earlier in this thread? That's my only one -- do you have others?

Probably wear, but not (to my mind) certain.

Cox and Overton thought these two were the same too:

That Kadina is type 4 with no time code, known used from 1906 to 1928. A gorgeous strike, but unfortunately the commonest variation of the commonest type. Likely worth only a dollar or two, alas.
