Hiya ,

Happy new year to all !

I'm have come across several different 2d brown wildings with various overprints e.g. Gas boards , electricity boards , corporations etc . I presume these do a similar job that perfins do in stopping employees using them for their own Postal uses.

I'm wondering is there a finite number of different ones & do many people collect them ? ( of course someone will collect them , there always is ) ?

Any info would be useful

Trev

Hi Trevor, a little late, but take a look here:

I have a small collection of Utility Company overprints which are quite cheap to purchase. You'll find a lot hand written over which indicates they were used as receipt authentication I believe.
