My contribution to this week's Sunday Stamps is a bit of a cheat, but please bear with me while I explain my story. Some of you who have read my previous stamp related posts will recall I inherited a family stamp collection many years ago. This 'stamp' was part of that collection, and although not really a stamp, I've always regarded it as one and it's been kept alongside my British Commonwealth stamps ever since. Rather than a stamp which has been stuck on to an envelope, it's more like one of those transfers that you rubbed on with a coin, that you used to get (and maybe still do) with packets of kids' sweets. It's a 4 pence registration stamp from Southern Rhodesia, although curiously postmarked in Deal, Kent. Hopefully there's another Sunday Stamps reader who might know a little more about this registration stamp and what it was used for.
