Dadu Branch PO was established at Dadu (26.933°N 72.133°E) (now in Jodhpur district, Rajasthan) inside the territory of the feudatory state of Jodhpur in 1892 under Pali Disbursing Office and under direct administrative control of Chief Inspector of Post Office, Rajputana Circle (est. April 1871).

The history behind the establishment of a Br. Indian PO at Dadu goes to the forceful cessation of the Mirdha Dak in Marwar in 1892 by the Br. India PO.

Mirdha Dak was a very efficient official mail service in Jodhpur state in Marwar, which traces back its inception as early as 1584.

Dadu was a center in the Bedwar, Sojat, Pali, Eranpura postal line of Mirdha Dak.

This cds type with district name (here Marwar) was introduced in 1893 to all Br. Indian Branch POs.

This should not be confused with another Br. Indian PO, also named Dadu (now in Dadu district, Sindh Province, Pakistan) which was established in 1872 under Karachi DO in Sindh Circle when the PO was allotted the number 43.

It may also be mentioned that there was a state PO called Dadu operated by Jaypur State Post in the feudatory state of Jaypur.

This postal stationery cutout is from either Br. India 1883 ½A Vic. turquoise green on white laid paper (laid lines running from left to right) envelope (Higgins and Gage B4/Lang EA8) (11.6cm×6.6cm) or less likely from Br. India 1886 ½A Vic. turquoise green on thin white laid paper envelope (H&G B4a/Lang EA9) (12cm×9.4cm).

Added this gem to stock today. :)

Tasmania 1892 10/- QV “Tablet”: Likely Unique USED Block 4: Never in 35 years of dealing, have I ever seen a Used Block 4 of this super high value. The beautiful London printed De La Rue Bi-Colour Definitive. Zeehan was a mining boom town on the remote West Coast, and this would have franked a heavy parcel of Silver no doubt.

£2 was a fortune then, in this 1d post First Class Letter era - this was 480 of those stamps - $720 in today’s money. In this period Zeehan was known as “The Silver City”. The ZEEHAN Post Office came into being in 1890. SG 224, £480 as 4 singles, and I’d bet, 100% UNIQUE as a used block. Indeed even MINT bocks of the 2 high values are very rare.

Great eye candy appeal, nicely centred, great perfs, bold deep original unfaded colours, no usual rust spots, and wonderful crisp "SOCKED ON THE NOSE" cds of “ZEEHAN DEC 18 : 00 Tasmania”. This exact printing was on sale state-wide until 1905, so is most certainly an “Australia Commonwealth” stamp. (Stock 716EK)

Joy,

Thank you for the information. I don't have the H&G ... had sent you an email a few days ago, can now check the dimensions. I had cropped the image to show the cancel - here is the complete cover:

The value represented a month's wage of a labourer in those days.

I have a small but evolving collection of 1927 Parliament House (ACSC 132). As that collection grows I am accumulating material related more to "Parliament", than to the stamp itself.

Shown here is a KGV, CofA wmk, 1/4d block of 4 (ACSC 131) with a “Parliament House Canberra” central CDS.

Not quite central, but close enough me thinks!

Since it requires two stamps to capture a single strike of the small triangle cancellation, I thought this might be of interest.

1913 4d Roo with complete NARACOORTE Squared Circle cds!
Very striking as you can see!

Owner had marked it on his page as “REVERSED C” but not so sure. Anyway, very striking bold full strike cds on a scarce basic stamp anyway - SG 6, £26.

These SA Squared Circles were the old SA STATE cancels, and the Feds in 1913 demanded all states NOT use them, and return the cancellers, and use the Federal cds with the first Roo stamps. Near all complied but Naracoorte is a small town in the South East and clearly did not bother! This is latter 1914. Way over a Century old now.

Good evening

In 1897 the words referred are an abbreviation of the following, XIX Portuguese spelling:

CORº E TELº = CORREIO E TELEGRAPHO (1)

Correio - singular; correios - plural

Telegrapho - singular; Telegraphos - plural

There are several variants for such abbreviations in the Portuguese circular datestamps - CORº e TELº, CORRº E TELº, etc.

(1) - Telegrapho becames Telégrafo only after 1911 spelling reform. Note the accent on top of the "e" and the "f" instead of "ph". This is possible to see in "all" post office documents, from those old times, with such words.

Thanks card12 for the correct spelling of CORº E TELº = CORREIO E TELEGRAPHO (1). Here is one from Chile.

Santiago, Chile
The word at the bottom of the cds is "MARITIMA" or maritime. I believe this was a tax cancel on import of goods. The rate was 10 centavos per 100 kilos.

TondeLa seems to have been spelt TondeLLa in the postmark. Was this part of a spelling reform too ?

Telegrapho - singular; Telegraphos - plural

There are several variants for such abbreviations in the Portuguese circular datestamps - CORº e TELº, CORRº E TELº, etc.

(1) - Telegrapho becames Telégrafo only after 1911 spelling reform. Note the accent on top of the "e" and the "f" instead of "ph". This is possible to see in "all" post office documents, from those old times, with such words.

Ahoj card12!

TondeLa seems to have been spelt TondeLLa in the postmark. Was this part of a spelling reform too ?

Cheers,

Honza
Good morning,

Dear Honza,

Yes, you are right.
"LL" was abolished.

Oberkreibitz- Schonfeld, Austria

The name intrigued me enough to learn more.
Today, it's Chribska, Czech Republic.

From Wikipedia...
"The place was first mentioned in 1383 as located at the trading road from Bohemia to the Lausitz. It became part of the possessions of the family of Wartenberg from Děčín, and in 1614 of the Kinsky family. Town rights had been granted in 1570, and in 1596 a militia was founded for defense.

Until 1918, KREIBITZ was part of the Austrian monarchy (Austria side after the compromise of 1867), in the RUMBURG (Rumburk) district, one of the 94 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Bohemia.[1]
Austrian KK stamp cancelled KREIBITZ in 1858

Along with other parts of the former Austrian Empire, Chřibská became part of Czechoslovakia in 1919. From 1938, after the Munich Agreement regarding the Sudetenland, until 1945, Chřibská was part of Varnsdorf district, with the suburbs of Niederkreibitz (Dolní Chřibská), Oberkreibitz (Horní Chřibská) and Schönfeld (Krásné Pole).

The Expulsion of Germans after World War II in 1945-1946 reduced the population (see the Beneš decrees).

Since 10 October 2006 Chřibská is again a town."


It's always fascinating what you learn with a little bit of curiosity!
