Larry,

This 'killer' cancellation was usd on newspapers and wrappers from about 1875. It is referred to as type K4x in 'Irish Diamonds' by Stan Challis & is uncommon (I've never seen one before.) On plate 150 this seems very early use and is a really clean strike. Numbers ranged 1 to 8.

Brian.

Brian Thank You for the input, I will try to buy a copy of "Irish Diamonds" book. The publisher says it is sold out. Not listed in any of my searchs today. Is it possible to get a scan of the page that mentions this postmark. I will try to figure out a method to sort my 250,000 four corner Penny Red stamps for other matches.

Larry,

Regret the 450-page tome is much too beefy for my lightweight LiDE scanner. It might be a good idea to send the scan to Stan Challis for his records, useful for any future update to the book - I expect he has received a plethora of new info since publication - and he may be able to point to available sources.

Brian.

Try this - Hope this helps & is right info. I haven't had a chance to familiarize myself with the formatting yet. Sorry for the blur - its a big book as Brian mentioned and I had a tough time with the scan. Wm
