However it is known the datestamp broke in 1843 or 1844 and the '43' or '44' slugs were never changed during the life of the cancellation thereafter. For an example of the altered state of the cancellation see the Berkinshaw-Smith collection (Corinphila sale 145) lot 3186 and two further lots in this sale.rnrnrnrnrn (Image 1) (Image 2)
