Great Britain: Failed Free Handstamps of the Franking System by Robert B Galland and John E Colton
Supplement 2, February 2023
This is the second (cumulative) supplement. When published in 2014 more than 250 wrappers, entires or fronts with Failed Free handstamps were described in detail. Since then, more than 70 new examples have been identified, 10 of which are in the Fletcher Collection in the British Library.
Further details have been obtained of 11 examples originally listed, including two Above Number handstamps (LN 3 and LN 8) which though described elsewhere in red ink had not been seen. No new type of handstamp has been found. There are two corrections: an LP 8 stamp incorrectly described as being in black ink rather than red and a date incorrectly recorded as 1743 instead of 1744 on a DCh 1 stamp.
To put the Supplement into context it needs to be read with the original book.Download
