ST. GEORGES (inverted watermark), Bermuda postmark
(H1) B/JU 11 89 on Crown CC INVERTED wmk QV ½d stone (SG.19w, Cat.£225), part extra cds rim at left.
Ludington Page 141 states "the St. Georges Type H1 appears to have been used mainly as a transit or arrival datestamp, for unlike the Hamilton Type H1 few have been recorded cancelling adhesives". Geoff Osborn also considered examples as very rare, however in view of the frequency of this date with INVERTED WATERMARK plus traces of further datestamps at edges one must consider that these came from a large multiple perhaps cancelled-to-order. This date also exists with NORMAL WATERMARK (scarcer)
