I see. I didn't realise that. Thank you.
Still, how often does a cancel having a dot after Darwin occur?

I'll have to answer this without a scan as my scanner's on the blink..
I'm very grateful to you, Bunge, for this comprehesively detailed answer !There are only 2 cancels which have a "Dot" or a "Comma" following the "N" in Darwin..
These are pre WWII and run from 1912 to 1938, and the 1st Type was also used from 1935 to 1942 in the M.O.O. (Money Order Office) Type CM-1 ~ This had the "Dot" or "Stop" after the "N" and the arc is below stop after T
The 2nd Type has a "Comma" after the "N" ~ Type CM-2 and the arc is level with the stop after "T" (29/6/1912 to 2/9/1938)
Based on the position of the arc to the stop after T, I'd say you have the 1st Type, late use, common..
I do preciate your information. Also many thanks for the excellent pictures illustrating the subject.I can tell you is that Northern Territory postmarks prior to 1960 are very difficult to find. I am yet to find a 1960 Melbourne fdc postmarked anywhere in the Northern Territory & I have been looking for at least 25 years.
I'd agree. Looks like it ends "LLA" to me.
Check your eyesight Terry!
That's not much help. I believe NSW/NT/Qld/SA/Tas/Vic/WA all have had the same 'AUST' suffix. It's the place name that is the key element.
Do we know the date? Could be non-contemporaneous usage.
Hi Chris, the following info is from - The Hand-held Postmarks of South Australia and Northern Territory
Some additional information..
