546 - Ayrshire Downs

Ayrshire Downs post office, 55 km north north west of Winton, opened on 2 December 1896
  • Sideface Barred Numeral Type 2 b (7.5 mm) is rated 2R
  • Commonwealth Barred Numeral Type 2 b (7.5 mm) is rated 5R
This numeral is often confused with 346. The best way to distinguish 546 from the more common 346 is that the former has 4 bars in the middle while the latter has only 3. Also the top of the 6 in 346 is more rounded
