All India Cancellations, 1873-1884 : Jal Cooper Types 32 - 35 : Part - II


Type 34 and 35

Within a few years of the introduction of type 32 series, it was felt imperative to simplicity these formidable combination types of letters and numbers and by 1880 a simple cancellation showing the distinguising alphabetic letter of the postal circle framed in a rectangle or a circle of thick bars was introduced, as in types 34 and 35. The size of the letters and bars vary considerably, in some cases there being four distinctive types.

The 'D','E', and 'I' letters cancellations are not found in type 32 series and this may be because the Bihar, Central India and Eastern Bengal offices were opened only for a very short time before the introduction of types 34 and 35, thus leaving no time for the use of typ 32 series at any of these three offices. Besides, letter 'D' though denoting offices of Bihar circle, was also found used in Nepal but it must be on an original to prove its use in Nepal.
