I would like to know the commencement date (or earliest known use) of the Birmingham spoon cancellation in 1853 or 1854.

John,
I assume you mean the first Birmingham Spoon (there were 22 varieties) and if so, Arundel quotes the issued date as 30th March 1854 and the earliest example seen as 2nd April 1854. Do you have an earlier copy?

Regards

Russell

Many thanks Russell. Mine is April 7. Although the 7 is not complete it is on a cover backstamped Sheffield April 8th. . It is on an imperf Plate 107 (only 2 mgns unfortunately)

John,
Would you be kind enough to send me a scan at silver.leys@btinternet.com as at a later time the GBPS will be updating the Arundel books including spoons.
Thanks
Russell
