How about this one, issued on the last day of the Newcastle Exhibition in 1929 with PUC stamps which was also held in the same year.

No problem. I have loads of these, mostly pre 1963. As I come across them, I'll add on here.

Bantams

I really think you need to use a scanner rather than digital camera as there is a shadow on your image.

The black background is good to have but in takes up too make of your image area & reduces the size of your cover. As a result I can barely read the Olympic Slogan Machine cancel.
Image
I have taken out the excess background & resized it to make the cover larger.

Perhaps you could enlarge the cancel area so it is more easily readable.

Geoff would obviously appreciate a better copy for his website.

I've redone the 1948 one:

Another couple you might not have:

Image

Windsor Royal Show - 3rd July 1939

Image

I just noticed the Swindon cover has a perfin stamp, assume it's for Swindon Borough Council. No idea if it's rare or common.

Thank you for redoing over the next few days will upload the first 2 on to the site
The third one I have and unless you are a perfin collector there is no additional value in the cover.
Thanks again Geoff
