The Nineteen Final GB TPO Postmarks In Use January 8th & 9th 2004
The final TPO Services to run were the North East TPO, North West TPO, Midland TPO, Great Western TPO and Bristol - Penzance TPO.
Inside the TPO
The interior view in Travelling Post Office NT0081 seen at the Scottish Railway Exhibition on the Bo'ness & Kinneil preserved Railway.
Collectors tip: The TPO postmark that many collectors may have overlooked on the final day was the Travelling Post Office Section London single ring cds postmark still in philatelic use via the Royal Mail's London Special Handstamp Centre until 9th January 2004. This last day postmark is therefore very likely to prove scarce in future (see the final illustration on the postmark checklist images below).
The above TPO postmark checksheets are not to scale and have been displayed by GBStamp.co.uk as two images to enable interested collectors to right click and take copies of for their own personal use. No commercial use should be made of these images.
