Queensland Steel Datestamps Commonwealth Period 2nd Edit.

Post by davidtoo »

Hi All,

The Second Edition of this book on Queensland postmarks has just been uploaded onto the Toowoomba Stamp Club Website. Nearly all the changes and additions have been underlined for the reader to easily identify.

The exceptions are the illustrated postmarks and, obviously, the deletions which have been very few.


Image


It is available as a free download and thanks to the Toowoomba Stamp Club for allowing us to use their website. The link to the Club website is below, so have a look around before going to the publications tab to download the book

https://www.toowoombastampclub.org/images/qsd2.pdf

This update has been nearly three years since the first edition, so I expect the third edition will be available in about the same timeframe, depending on the number of changes.

So enjoy this edition of "Queensland Steel Datestamps - Commonwealth Period"

Thanks
David

You really do have to check all those FDCs that you might usually just pass by. Like this example I have found many ERDs or LRDs on FDCs.

Thankyou Rod. This one is unlisted in our reference work.
I will give it a cursory rating of R to begin with.
Value would be at least double if it is "tied".
Any senders name on the back, Rod?

Woolloongabba, in blue ink (not mentioned in the list).

I've noticed some postmarks in the guide listed separately for blue ink, so forgive my ignorance if this is an unremarkable postmark.

I cannot find any issue. I have logged on from my home computer using chrome, edge and explorer no problem. My son is in Venice using a US based mobile and can log on, my sister is in melbourne and successfully logged on using a landline. I have just logged on thru the work computer with no problem. All of the above has been via searching for the site on the web.

I have logged on from iPad and iPhone no problem. I have clicked on the link in the supplied error message on the iPad and logged on successfully

I will contact the person who runs the website and see if he can find an issue. Otherwise I can only suggest the problem is at your end

Thanks
David

From Malta I'm unable to access any of the Toowoomba Stamp Club website (not just the PDF). When I click on the link the following comes up:
This site can’t be reached
www.toowoombastampclub.org’s server IP address could not be found.
Search Google for toowoomba stamp club org images qsd2

However, oddly enough, when I tried archiving the link (just add web.archive.org/save/ before the URL) I was able to do so. This suggests that the website is accessible from San Francisco, where the Internet Archive servers are presumably located.

Either an ERD or LRD for Cairns, but first identifying the correct entry in Queensland Steel Datestamps.

Image

Dated 5 May 77 and its measurements match Smithies type 210. I therefore assume type 5s(i) should actually read 5st(i), or are the details for 5st and 5s(i) swapped arround?

I have just re measured my copy of 5st. Change Dell & Price measurements to 14.5, 15, 30.5.

The 220 in Smithies is not a postmark with time. It is one of the 5s types. Regards,Terry Dell.

Thanks Terry.

A LRD for type 5st (with corrected measurements) it is.

I appreciate Smithies type 220 does not have time, I was referring to type 210 which does.

I recently acquired this cover in among a lot of other covers.

The cover itself is a bit of a trainwreck, sorry about the pun, but the two Cairns cancellations are testing me a little.

In the Dell and Price book and the Smithies book the ERD/LRD dates for both cancels are different to those on the cover.

Image

Image

The Cairns (6) LRD is Aug 1978, and the ERD Unclaimed Cairns date with the SDL is 19 Aug 1981.

Any help appreciated.

Another not so good looking cover, but I think the Cairns (3) backstamp is earlier than that listed in the book.

Hi Terry,

Here's a really nice pick-up I found in a mixed lot from overseas:

Westbrook Siding proving cover with numeral 300 type 2A.
Sent Westbrook Siding 24 Feb 1901 to Broken Hills, NSW, via Sydney (Backstamped Feb 25 1901).

Unframed Westbrook Siding listed in 1st edition as RRR in Cowan & Dell. (Not noted edition 2??)

Numeral 300 type 2a listed in Manning as RRRRR. (Messy strike, but legible!)

Cheers.

Possibly a stupid question; wouldn't that be a duplex and not a separate unframed CDS and numeral?

Not a duplex. Westbrook Siding far too small to warrant a duplex canceller.

Hi again Terry,

What rating would you give this cds?

Cheers.
Browny.

Even though it is only the second date recorded my preliminary rating would be R.

This would change over time if paids become more popular.
