Hi Asterix,

Hi, Does anyone know where I might be able to get hold of some Sheaoak Log cancelled stamps / envelopes etc? My grandmother ran the post office there until it closed so am interested for family reasons.
Thanks.


Shea Oak Log is interesting in that it had probably the last use of a Diamond Numeral cancellation, first used in the 1800's, collectors came to know of this, and arranged covers to be produced, often in the late 1960's, so I do see these from time to time, I will keep my eye open for you.

Bunge here is the third partial cancel:

Having now seen it enlarged, the last three letters of the first word look like "RED".

So ......RED ADELAIDE.

Ah, thanks Ubobo, I didn’t know “registered” was ever included in post marks (as distinct from a separate sticker).

Regarding your "RES ADELAIDE" are you sure that's right ? Only thing that comes to mind without seeing the postmark is "REGISTERED ADELAIDE"

Cheers Bunge :P
As I mentioned in the original post, REGISTERED ADELAIDE was what came to mind, there are 3 different Squared Circle Cancels of this and a Bogus one of SC1

Your partial example is the 2nd SC cancel ~ Type SC2 - Rated C (51-99 copies considered to exist)

Here are 2 full cancels of my SC2 from 1898 & 1902

I recently found this rather dirty stamp with a possible Le Fevre's Peninsula squared circle postmark and wondered what it's rating might be.

Welcome to Stampboards, kfmoore.

This really is a visual hobby so we ask that all posts asking a question include a scan or good photo of the item in question in the post rather than a link. You would be surprised how quickly answers are forthcoming when members know what is being discussed/asked about.

Here is a link to our tutorial on including images in your posts How do I post photos on Stampboards using IMGUR? and also to a thread where you can test the results Want to add a photo/image? Practice posting a picture HERE!

Also, you have asked this exact same question in four topics, once is usually enough.

Scanned this into stock today with recent colour certificate - fine strike Barred Diamond “102” of tiny Normanville, on the 1855 SG #1 1d Dark Green stamp - high rarity rated “RRR”.

That PO was not even opened until 14/8/56, and the 102 numeral was only used there for a year or so before being replaced. (Stock 685JQ)

Hi!

I saw this postmark in this small auction lot. It is a Largs Bay squared circle dated JA 17 87, so I think it is a quite early one. Is this one rated somehow? I`ll provide a closer scan, when I have the stamp in hands, but I thought the picture might be enough to find out the type of the postmark!?

Hi all, been looking through some of the Squared Circle postmarks that I have and located this one of Penong with a postmark of 24th August, 1914. Suggestion was that the SC postmark was used through to 2015 but no evidence of it. Hope this might aid research into the subject. Regards, Summo.

Summo, here is an entire Squared Circle cancel, you can easily see why they're called "Squared Circle"

Hi Bunge,

thank you very much for your fast answer! So 3R is not too bad. Will put it aside in my small stockbook with Australian States stamps.

Hello,

This stamp shows a handwritten cancellation Koonunga South Australia. Are such manuscript cancellations common or is this just an example, where maybe the datestamp was not readable? Any info would be great!
