Throughout the 1969 year I have shown a lot of covers addressed to E. Mein of Warminster Wiltshire & Messrs Lee & Son of Ilford Essex.

Each time their covers are the same envelope stock, have the same stamps, placed in the same configuration & placed in the same position on their covers.

Their covers are also postmarked on the same date. I tend to think is a little strange.


E Mein
E Mein

Messrs Lee &amp; Son
Messrs Lee & Son

The obvious conclusion to draw is that these two collectors knew each other & prepared covers for each other & sent them off together. However I don't think it is that simple.


Warnminster to Ilford map
Warnminster to Ilford map

The map shows a 117 mile distance & nearly two & half hours time between the two towns today. The time travel may well have been longer 50 years ago.

The next possibility is that some one ran a postmarking service where they prepared covers & sent them off for postmarking & delivery to their customers. This seems doubtful as there is no evidence of an address of an agent on the reverse or a subscription card inside these envelopes.

So perhaps this is all just coincidence. :)

I have seen no covers or piece for any of the ALF machines for PPP 1396t type 949. I do think is a little strange given I have been able show you most machines since their inception. I will keep looking. :)

The covers shown in the previous post were the last Newmarket Races covers slogan cancels used at Cambridge that I have seen.

I have no information on why they ceased nor what happened to the 6 dies used there.

I will return shortly with just Newmarket at Newmarket on cover (as I seem to have no more pieces.

Both Newmarket dies are show here with & without time in date section. :)
No time is shown on 2nd class mail (4d) but is shown for 1st class mail, hence the extra 1d.

Ian

Thank you for unravelling that mystery for me of the extra 1d - first & second class mail.

You have given me an extra aspect of collecting theses postmarks now.

Now to actually find them.

I do find it a little surprising on not being able to find this postmark which was in use for the best part of 5 months. Looks like I will have to l@@k harder. :D

So you don't have to stand on your heads.

Note here is my first example of a "new pence" stamp.

On 14 February 1971, there were 12 pennies to the shilling and 20 shillings to the pound. The following day all that was history and the pound was made up of 100 new pence.

Don't be fooled into thinking postage has reduced, it is just decimal conversion.

Newmarket Races - LPA 1079t used for one day only - 15th April 1971.

In the absence of any other information it would appear that the undated LP dies were mistakenly put into the postmarking machines instead of 1749t (see next post).

If haven't found LP 1010t which was used for all but 5 months, what are my chances of finding LP 1749t used for only one day.
