Stock Code: P201005760
1859 Dumb Cancellations. Very fine pair of covers from London both sent on the same day with the stamps cancelled by the same mysterious dumb cancellation. The first an unusual 3d rate (Note of Objection?) cover bearing a 1d rose-red (SG40) and a 2d Blue Pl.7 (SG45) to Liverpool with a London blue thimble cds for AU.25.1859 (Code 2D). The second cover to Avenses, France bearing a 4d Rose-carmine (SG66) with the same London thimble cds on reverse, all cancelled by identical dumb cancels. Not a postmark we can recall seeing before and worthy of further research.
