Information about postal markings on QV 1906 New South Wales cover

Post by GB 789 »

Could anyone please give me further information about this NSW cover, particularly concerning two of the markings on the front.

The first one says ‘not known by letter carriers South Melbourne’ and the second is a small rectangular box Mark next to the stamp dated 22 No 1906.

Are these marks of any value or are they fairly common.

Many thanks

Not Known Carrier handstamp many collect, and as they are post 1901 and again many collect those as AUSTRALIA technically. The small boxed marking was simply day and time marked.

Nicolle and Howard Davis were both leading stamps dealers -

Thank you for your reply. I have a number of similar covers addressed to this same dealer. Some with his own return address on so perhaps he was an early pioneer of collecting postal history. I will try to add a few more covers this evening when home from work.
