The Route Instruction Handstamps, cont. HS-N51 -


On his page all new discovered handstamps will be listed, waiting for publication in an eventually new publication.



  • If a link in the colum "Cover Image" is provided, a fully size high resolution image of the cover bearing the respective Handstamp. That image will open in a new layer.

  • If you copy the image that has been scanned from the original cover and open and enlarge it with a graphic program you will see measuring lines around the handstamp imprint. These lines indicate the measuring border from which the actual measurement has been taken.

Similar to HS-93 but only one line of text on a cover from Kirmanshar, Iran (21 January 1934) to England. Item not in my collection, hence size con not be verified. A color copy is appreciated.



Cover from Beirut, Lebanon, dated 13 April 1926 in the collection of the late Zvi Alexander. Interesting Bi-Lingual Route Instruction Handstamp whereas the English part is misspelled OVRELAND instead of OVERLAND.
