Bath Duplex Cancel

  • Digital Collection


A letter from Bath to Newcastle (under Lyme), Staffordshire cancelled with the Bath duplex dated 23 September 1861. The duplex is so called as it is composed of two parts, one part a barred numeral which was to cancel the stamp and the other part a circular date stamp with dies to cater for all dates. The letter is prepaid with a perforate penny red with only two corner letters and no plate number, issued from 1854
