Great Britain: Failed Free Handstamps of the Franking System Supplement 1, March 2017 – Robert B Galland and John E Colton

Failed Free Handstamps

When published in 2014 more than 250 wrappers, entires or fronts with Failed Free handstamps were described in detail. Since then more than 43 new examples have come to light. In addition, further details have been obtained of several examples originally listed. In addition, two Above Number handstamps have been seen. These were mentioned but without details, as we had not seen them, in the First Edition. No new type of handstamp has been seen. As before, in all Tables were the ‘Source’ is shaded we have seen the item in a private collection but can provide no definitive reference. The structure of this Supplement is the same as that in the original book. The checklist has been revised to reflect the new findings.
