Description:

Clean postmark. Via the Postmark Society Catalogue of Slogan Postmarks of the UK vol. 3, this postmark is given the number (General Slogan; GS) 3623. It is titled the “Girl Guides 75th Anniversery”. This was the 2nd use of design Type 2430, and was officially used from the 11th of Feburary to the 2nd of March, 1985. This example goes beyond this, but not past the official beginning of the third use on the 17th of June - thus making it part of the 2nd use, albeit a late example.
