Hi all, before I put this item on eBay I was just wandering if anyone has any information on it, as I'm selling it with some fairly modern stamps it looks quite old and interesting. Any ideas,age,value, why it was used? Best wishes, Tom.

Hastings is not a small town, so unless there is some reason why its overprint is uncommon, I wouldn't expect Hastings to be rare. Check for a partial papermaker's watermark. That would be nice to find.
