Commonwealth Barred Numeral Type 2 a (7 mm) on a stamp first issued in 1930, so suspect. Seen at Phoenix auction no 36 lot no 542



Southbrook Commonwealth Barred Numeral Type 2 a (7 mm) and dated 14 March 1933. Seen in a private collection. Why it was used in Southbrook is unclear. Manning has also seen this numeral used in Toowoomba on 28 August 1930. The mystery deepens. The cancel is genuine but its usage probably is not!
