The Great Britain Philatelic Society has announced that the full text of Barred Numeral Cancellations of England and Wales
by John Parmenter, David Luckly, Ken Smith, and Prof. Cedric Prys-Roberts (revised and updated for 2021) is now available for download.
RARITY & PRICE
The rarity index ranges from A = abundant to H = very few recorded. H* has been used for proofed cancels that have only been recorded on loose stamp. GPO means that the cancel has only been seen in the Proof Books.Prices for coloured cancels have not been quoted, there is too much variation.Prices have not been updated from those quoted in the six volume set issued 2011 to 2013 -i.e. they are at least 10 years old
Nonetheless a very useful resource.
Sample pages from Norfolk / Dereham, including a few paras from the classification:
EDIT: And of course if you have an example which doesn't fit in with the data in the list, by extending dates or adding codes or times, then the Society will wish to hear from you!
