HK Item on p. 69

Tony, In re the item on p. 69, I also think it's a fake. I've never seen another, and for all the reasons you state and the fact that the type appears uneven -- something you could put together with one of those make-your-own handstamp kits -- it smells. That said, nice find if you didn't pay dearly for it. Dann

Re page 70:
Grosvenor Philatelic Auctions, London, sale 24 May, has a collection of Ireland which includes a number of items from the Easter Rising period. I will report on the sale in the July edition.

Re page 72, Forensic examination of mails 1916
Two more examples have been reported - again to The Netherlands and not outside the presently recorded time frame.
More in the feedback column in July.
