MALTESE CROSS OBLITERATIONS

Prince Consort (Prince Albert) Essay

Update - April 07 - Beware of forgeries that have started to be sold on ebay.
They are currently being sold 'on piece' from Germany. Although it will not take

do not have the same level of detail as the originals and all bear a perfect formed maltese cross
cancel. Letters to watch for are HH and IL.
