Ah ! The experimental sloper cancellation with orb and cross, hardly a perfin !

Goodnight Paul 1, it's bedtime Fred.

Paul 1 - With regards to your comment that used stamps are not as issued !

That is why they are called " used " and not " mint as issued " .

Other Punch-Drunk stamps can be found on telegram receipts used in payment, these holes are official unlike the majority of perfins found, and are possibly the nearest equivalent to the experimental Sloper cancel first implemented in the latter half of the 19th century .

As to what these telegram stamps are worth is anybody's guess unless you specialise in this particular type of cancel .

True Fred.

also the Telegram forms tend to have the higher values! I have a few from Dover still on the form with QEII castles on. A valid cancellation!
