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.

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!

Hi josto, manuscript cancels are not all that common and there is no mention of one associated with Koonunga..

Put your question in this thread, you may have it answered by Neville the author of the books..

Hi all, hoping that there can be some confirmation of what I believe is a SC postmark of Port Clinton. If so closed on 20/2/1986. Regards, Summo.

Hi Summo,

Can't think what else it could be -unless the C was a G and it was Port Germein?

I have not really added to my meagre collection but i did pick these up over the weekend
The first type I assume for Mount Gambier dated MR 14 93 and a reasonable part strike of Yabmana xE x9 95 a cancel i did not have!

Hi Summo, this is Port Germain not Port Clinton, there is a "Dot" between the S.A, Port Clinton has a "Dash" S_A

Port Germain
Type SC2
27mm
8/8/1903 to 1927
Rated C

And do us all a favour next time and post the Postmark in an upright readable position as that's what we need to see and not the stamp..

Saw this stamp and tried to use Retroreveal to figure out the cancel. It appear's to be Ford's, South Australia. Does anyone know the rarity on this? I'm afraid the picture isn't very revealing.

I would value any information on this pair with a squared-circle full strike and a squared-circle part strike.

The cancel shows the post office MOOCKRA/NO2 with the number 14 (I think) and "S-A".

Thank you,

Many thanks Bunge.

To clarify, are there strikes without the No. 2?

Is there any significance in the "14"(?) below No. 2?

Philip, you are reading my info wrong..

An Index Number will be above the date, yours has no Index Number, your date is NO 2 which is November the 2nd 1914, and Index Number would be above that..

In the case of Moockra, it either has - no index, or it has an index 2

I'll give you an example of one of mine - St. Peters with an Index Number 2
St. Peters -Index 2

The squared circles on Long Stamps are rippers aren't they? Blackwood Railway sounds like a good cancel also. :)

Like Rigs, I just found these recently and thought ‘why not’. This is such a long discussion thread, and it never lacks interest.


Selected South Australia: ‘Squared Circle’ Stamp Postmarks
Selected South Australia: ‘Squared Circle’ Stamp Postmarks

These six seem likely to be common ones. My reckoning is as follows.

1. Blinman
2. Port Adelaide
3. Kingston
4. Clare
5. Norwood
6. Naracoorte

Hi all,

Just came across this one not in perfect condition but i think a pretty rare cancel - Pandurra

OC 8 1895 I think? It was in a collection I bought of all sorts of Australian States I had seen this and thought it was pretty scarce so fingers crossed....

Well done Lundy! Pandurra is one of the very rare South Australia squared circle cancels, the office only open for two years from 1895-97. The ERD is probably claimable by yourself (8.10.1895?) and the LRD is 20.10.1896. So, a great find Lundy! This one is missing from my collection at the moment too. Rated 4R in the Philatelic Society of South Australia handbooks.

Cheers,
Mike

Yay! Thanks Mike, I didn't have it either... and took quite a big punt (as the lot it was in cost about £140) but I saw this and thought worst case this would help towards making it a reasonable buy! Lots of other cheap but useful bits as added here: https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=64669

Thanks again for confirming I have not picked up any new ones for a while so this was good news :)

I had a look of your other purchases from the same lot and I'd say that you had a great buy at ₤140 for the lot as there is also much value in some of the other numerals from NSW and Tasmania.

As for the Pandurra cancel, I would have gladly paid double plus what you paid for the lot. It is surely a 'rare beast'. Incidentally, Pandurra is a huge sheep station situated some 40km from Port Augusta, and semi-arid and harsh environment. It is not far from Iron Knob.

Thanks Mike,

That's good to know, the Tasmania numerals on pictorials are tough.... I don't have many at all... I do need to get the SA handbooks at some point but collecting so widely (and not really selling) means I slowly add to my library of literature....

Thanks for the additional information about Pandurra as well...

Lundy :D

Another good find! (no pun intended!). This time a squared cancel of 'Goode', S.A. on 1d. George V, rated 3R. The latest date recorded is November, 1916. I make this one as reading 23rd March 1917, so it is the LRD for this cancel by some 4 months.

Cheers,
Mike
