  • Sideface Barred Numeral Type 2 a (6 mm) is rated 4R

Re Allocation:

Greenmount post office, 22 km south of Toowoomba, as a replacement canceller
  • Sideface Barred Numeral Type 2 a (6 mm) pre 1895 is rated 4R

  • Commonwealth Barred Numeral Type 2 a (6 mm) is rated 5R
Manning states that ties seen for Greenmount are all post 1895 so it is assumed that earlier issues are from Bald Hills. However some of the examples shown below easily predate this. It can therefore be assumed that all second sideface issues are Greenmount unless a Bald Hills tie is found. Nonetheless the earlier 2nd sideface ties are very rare
