Ahoj Kipling!

I hate these cryptic comments. Please say why the date is of interest. A major sporting event? Severe weather conditions? Birthday of a close relative?

and to which post is the reference linked? 'Not quite' means nothing unless we know the context. That is why there is a quote button.

Sorry if I sound like Ian. :lol:

Just realised you may not have been answering anyone and meant your stamp was not quite a Bullseye, but still too cryptic to be clear and I need not have wasted time scrolling back trying to find what your post referred to.

Hello Honza.

The 1st of November 1934 was the First Day of Issue for that stamp.

Cheers. Tod. :)

This French one is a good hit, but the cancel is a trifle faint. It is from Saint-Palais-sur-Mer, a seaside resort north of Bordeaux, in the Department of Charente-Maritime. There follows a scene showing traditional cottages built upon the rocks at the shoreline.

Cheers. Tod. :)

I love stamps like this. A scarce shade, clean and fresh, with a lovely upright, crisp dated cds of tiny OUSE in Central Tasmania of June 19, 1918 – population even TODAY only 300!

Me, I prefer cryptic occasionally.
Encourages some thought about a subject otherwise rather boring.

Did you find any interesting weather conditions 87 years ago?
I would have thought investigating the stamp was a more promising way to go, but that's just me.

Who is Ian?
Bit cryptic that!

'Not quite' refers to the thread heading; as in "Not quite socked on the nose" :?

The date is significant because it's the first day of issue; which may also explain the quality of the cancel.

Hello everybody. Here are two examples from The Friendly Islands of Tonga, featuring King George II. Both cancels are from Nukualofa (Nukuʻalofa), the first is dated August 1901, the other is indistinct. The stamps shown here were part of a series engraved by De La Rue, which included several of the earliest scenic pictorial stamps.


Tonga 1897 2½d definitive stamps, socked on the nose.

This place is the Capital of the Kingdom of Tonga, and seat of government. Here is a picture of Nukuʻalofa from 1897, the same year as the stamp was first issued.

Tonga was briefly visited by Captain Cook, and then visited by European Missionaries in the early 1800s. King George II was succeeded by Queen Salote in 1918, and she reigned for 48 years. Cheers, Tod. :)

Hello all. Here is another one from British Guyana, on the 1934 12c Orange Market, which was in use for decades. This one is a direct hit from 1949. It is from the small regional centre of Anna Regina, on the Atlantic coast.

The town was named after the daughters of an English plantation owner of the early 1800s. The young girls, Anna and Regina, tragically drowned while swimming one morning. It is not a big place, with a population of less than 20,000. Here is a recent picture of the Anna Regina Post Office.

Please allow me to introduce The Reverend Robert Walker Skating on Duddingston Loch, in Scotland. As unlikely as it may sound, this Scottish Minister was one of the founders of figure skating. The picture is regarded as a masterpiece of Scottish Romanticism.

The postmarks are both from inner London. The first is from posh Hampstead, not far from the Heath of the same name, and in fairly close proximity to the West End and Bloomsbury. The other one is from Poplar, near the Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf, destined to become posh also, a bit later than the date on the cancel. Cheers, Tod. :)

The ones below are probably among the best of the ones I have, but I included the two rather odd cancellations at the bottom of the scan just for fun.

I do like the Castlemaine and Prahran ones. The clean black on the green is quite attractive.

Hello everybody. This one is old, from the 1850s in fact, one of the first surface printed issues. A direct hit with the Liverpool ‘466’ numeral cancel.

To put it into context, England was still getting over the trauma of the Crimean War, and Australian colonies were establishing their first parliaments. Here is a contemporary scene from the centre of Liverpool. Cheers, Tod. :)

Scan_20211106.jpg
2012 Mi:SN 2203 and 2017 Mi:SN 2258

the 2012 stamp you wouldn't think it depicts a big disaster in Senegal, except for the black bar off course.
MV Le Joola was a Senegalese government-owned roll-on/roll-off ferry that capsized off the coast of The Gambia on 26 September 2002,[1] with 1,863 deaths and 64 survivors. It is thought to be the second-worst non-military disaster in maritime history.

The ship was plying the route from Ziguinchor in the Casamance region to the Senegalese capital, Dakar, when it ran into a violent storm, farther out to sea than it was licensed to sail. The estimated 2,000 passengers aboard (about half of whom lacked tickets) would have amounted to nearly four times the ship's design load. The large numbers sleeping on-deck (and thus above its center of buoyancy) added further instability. Rescue operations did not start for several hours.

A government inquiry principally blamed negligence, and accusations were levelled at both the Senegalese president and prime minister.

Hello everyone. Here is an example of the top value in the first Elizabethan definitive set from Mauritius, socked on the nose with a Port Louis Registered CDS dated 1958. Not a bad stamp except for the wrinkles at the top right corner. One feature on the official Coat of Arms is the bearer on the left, a Dodo.


Mauritius 1954 10R. Deep grey-blue definitive stamp, with Port Louis cancel.

Port Louis is the capital of the island nation of Mauritius, and the main port. With a population of about 150,000 it is by far the largest town on the island. One of the many tourist attractions there, is the Blue Penny Museum, located in the Caudan Waterfront district. It is home to a large stamp collection, including examples of both the 2d. Blue and 1d. Red of 1847. If you look closely, you can see both of them on the banner at the front of the building. Cheers, Tod. :)

Hello everybody. Here is a nice direct hit on a 1911 printing of the Edwardian 9d., from Marchmont Road in Edinburgh, Scotland. Marchmont Road is known for its rows of tenements, and it lies roughly two kilometres south of the Old Town.

UK 9d. Reddish purple and light blue Edwardian stamp, Somerset House printing, socked on the nose with Marchmont Rd Edinburgh CDS of 1912.

Most of the buildings were completed in the 1870s and 1880s, and these were to be four- or five-storey tenements. The first tenements to go up were mostly in pink sandstone, in the Scots Baronial style, with pepper pot turrets and crow stepped gables. Marchmont remains a trendy place to live, and is also full of student accommodation. Famous residents have included J. K. Rowling, and the fictional detective Rebus. Cheers, Tod. :)

Hello everyone. Bonagai was a small frontier settlement on Woodlark Island, now Muyua Island, located between the PNG mainland and the Solomons. It was the administrative and postal centre for the Woodlark gold mine. Here is part of an official report, with letter numbers included. Cheers, Tod. :)

BNG 2d Black and violet Lakatoi, Large Papua overprint, 1906, socked on the nose with Bonagai cancel.
BNG 2d Black and violet Lakatoi, Large Papua overprint, 1906, socked on the nose with Bonagai cancel.
Papua (British New Guinea) - Annual Report, 1906-7. Excerpt on Posts, from section for Bonagai, South-Eastern Division.

'The want of a time-table regulating the arrival and departure of mail steamers calling at Woodlark Island causes a considerable inconvenience and annoyance. As a port of call, Woodlark Island does not appear to have been provided for in the Mail Contract, the term of which is just completed, and it is hoped that in the next contract provision will be made for calling at Woodlark in accordance with a time-table. As it is now, we never know when to expect the arrival or departure of a mail steamer, and when they do call, the master of the vessel never thinks of conforming to the provisions of section iii of the Commonwealth Postal Act, but suits his own convenience according to the time he may have lost elsewhere, and regulates accordingly his length of stay here to receive mails and discharge cargo.

During the year there were 4I oversea mails despatched and 40 received, of these 40 were carried by mail steamers and 41 by other vessels. The number of ordinary letters despatched outward was 2,955 and the number received 3,944. Registered letters inward 57 and outward 175.'
