Hi there ,

I'm wondering if anyone can ID a perfin please on a EDVII stamp . A giant DK hole count 12,12- I can't find it in the Tomkins directory 2004 .

I found an excellent website called Grace's which list many old industrial companies - fascinating .

Hi Trev - I'm still here, but I would look at Tomkins too so I can't id it for you. Any legible cancel or part which might help?

Seems like Stamp Magazine doesn't want to police its own Forums so spam remains and the spammers are not removed from membership. As a mod I can delete individual posts but not the whole thread or the miscreants who post to them. Unless it is moderated better by the owner I fear it will become so spam heavy nobody else will visit.

Shame. Ho hum

Hi Paul ,

Alas I feel you are right , what happened to Julian ? I enjoyed reading his witterings .

I don't have the stamp close by at the moment but all the EDVII stamps I acquired in one lot were from the Preston , Manchester areas tho some of the other perfins came FROM other REGIONS & were posted to Preston area. I ID'd a few JTS , JAS, M&K,JHM ,RT/&S ,L&S /Ld

There are no DK's at all . Has there been an updated Tomkins list since 2003 or is it ongoing each year ?

Have you tried contacting the Perfin Society **LINK**

I think if you contact the librarian, Roy, his e mail is on the library page , he/they may be able to help.

I used to belong to them and it is a very helpful Society.
