re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

According to the back of mount packages, measure the stamps themselves and add 5mm to the height and you have the correct size.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

I also collect these numeral cancels. Just be aware that completion is probably impossible as some numbers are very rare.

The mounts I use are open topped mounts that are 30 mm high by 25 mm wide. I believe that the stamps themselves are 26 mm high by 21 mm wide.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Simothecat thanks for the information regarding the stamp mounts needed. These are the numerals I am missing from my collection;

137
139
142
143
144
145
146
147
148
149
150
155
159
220
221
222
226
230
232
233
244
246
248
251
252
253
254
255
256
257
258
259

Would be interested in purchasing the non expensive ones that I am missing.

One more question I have is that I am rather confused when it comes to some of the Netherlands Numeral Cancels especially the number 68 on stamps if you hold the stamp one way it looks like the number 89 how can you tell whether the number on the Netherland Numeral Cancel is 68 or 89?

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

I would imagine that the examples you have of cancels containing the numeral 8 should give you a clue. The top loop should be smaller than the bottom, which should then enable you to orientate the cancel correctly:

Yes, that's correct. 1 to 135 are the major cities in alphabetic order. After that it is additions whenever a postoffice was opened. See my webpage. I cannot give you any rarity values for the various numbers though.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

Your collection is clearly more advanced than mine. I still currently miss just over 100 numbers. The ones you miss are the more expensive values. I read an article once, that claimed that there are only 5 known copies of 259 (many forgeries though). This is not too surprizing though, as that postoffice opened 1 June, and then stopped using the 259 on 15 June 1893. A genuine one will cost you $$$$ if not $$$$$.

Telling the difference between a 6 and a 9 is difficult but can be done. One of my catalogues shows photographs, but I found that they didn't help much.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

If there could be a doubt about the cancel being a 6 or 9, for instance with numbers 6, 9, 69, 66, 99, an extra point was added. So it became 6. or 9. or 9.9 or 6.6 Apart from that, there is a difference in shape between the 6 and the 9. The "hook" of the 6 is more open.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

I just checked "de poststempels van nederland 1676 - 1915" by O.M. Vellinga.

He states that the number cancel was not authorized for use to cancel postcards with a pre-printed stamp (a postal card). He then gives a list of 22 offices where this was done (at some time or other) against regulations.

The number cancel was to be used on a post card with a stamp attached, and also on postage due stamps (including on postcards).

There are some i dare not try to id for reasons you guys know about...poor printing of the numerals,heavy cancel which make.. ones and fours questionable, or the number too close to the edge where possibly a number is missing. I have hundreds of the Netherlands Indies King and young Queen types but not ONE numeral cancel among them.

He claims to have the largest inventory of puntstempels in the world!
In the Netherlads a numeral cancel is called a 'puntstempel' , literally translated a dotcancel! After all, the dots are what is different from a regular cancel!

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

If you have a complete cover, there should be a date cancel on the envelope. If you only have the stamp, you check when the stamp was introduced. 21 - Delfshaven was used until May 1st 1886 and 25 - Dirksland was used until December 16th 1890. So if you have a 21 or 25 cancel on a Princess Wilhelmina stamp, you can be sure it is Emmen or 's-Graveland. In all other cases, it is more difficult.

I do not know much about the Netherland Langstempel, as there does not seem to be much information regarding these on the internet in English. Why were the Lansgtempel used in conjunction with the small round cancels, what is the meaning behind the Langstemper and why were they used. You would think that small round cancels denoting cities in Holland would have been enough.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

How did this thread suddenly become about langstempels? (Snap - missed your correct while typing.)

A langstempel is one with the name in a straight line. The short answer on their use, is that they were only used by offices that were too small to justify having their own small round cancel. Such offices were not full postoffices. Their actual use is quite involved.

There is a detailed article on them in english in Netherlands Philately, volume 3, number 1, beginning on page 11. This can be accessed at http://asnp1975.com/

This is the journal of the American Society for Netherlands Philately (shameless plug).

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

I have received the following information regarding Numeral 21 and Numeral 25 but need someone to give me more information perhaps in the form of photos or drawing from a catalogue of Netherlands Numeral Cancels:

there are small differences between the cancels, but they are quite difficult to see.

no. 21

No. 21 was first issued to 'Delfshaven' and was revoked on the 1st of May 1886
On April 1st 1892 the new no. 21 was given to 'Emmen'

The 2 cancels can be distinguished from the bottom of the 2 (not sure what the difference is however)

All Wilhelmina loose hair with no. 21 are always 'Emmen'

no. 25

No. 25 was first issued to 'Dirksland' (1 april 1869 till 16 december 1890, when the office Dirksland was closed)

The new cancel 25 was given to 's-Graveland' on april 1st 1892 and has thinner figues

To make it a little bit more difficult: There are 2 cancels 25 Dirksland: the 1st 1869-1875, the 2nd 1875-1890 where the figures are also thinner then on the 1st.....

All Wilhelmina loose hair with no. 25 are always 's-Graveland'

in regards I would like to get a drawing or photo of what differences are in the figure 2 and in the numeral I would need a photo showing the differences of thinner figures.

Hi Stan,

Forgeries of numeral cancels do exist. Simple examples are those which change a 1 into a 4 or to add a couple of digits to a 5 using a pencil. (Not in this case.)

I don't know enough to determine if the ebay example is genuine or not. It would help to do some research, though. The 159 cancel was issued to Kamp bij Millingen on 20 August 1872. According to my NVPH catalogue, NVPH 19 K was issued between 1884 and 1887. Was the camp still open then? I don't know, but it certainly was closed by 1892 when the number 159 was re-issued to Kamp bij Rijen.

List of post offices with the date the 'puntstempel' was issued. That is what the Dutch sentence reads. Of course, 'puntstempel' is translated as numeral cancel which it really should translate to 'point cancel'!
My catalog does not give a precise date for 19D other than 1872-1875.

I am in need of a translation from Dutch to English - there are a number of times when reading about the Netherland and Dutch Indies Numeral cancellations that they use the phrase emission eg. Emission Wilhelmina what does Emission mean when you put it through the dutch to English translation Emission means Emission? does it actual mean in English let me use it in an example Wilhelmina Issue?

The Dutch word 'emissie' should be translated as 'issue', not 'emission'.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi jansimon it was an actual stamp site that I was on that had stamp pages and at the end they had one page which listed the colors of Dutch East Indies cancels and had spaces with a heading that said EMISSION WILHELMINA 1892 was Emission perhaps a misspelling for what you said it might be? because no matter what translation service I use no one has a translation for Emission should I then use Dutch word 'emissie' instead of Emission??

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

was it a dutch site?
Perhaps it was translated automatically. There are different ways of translating the word. It can have a meaning in physics, like the emission of particles etc. but it can also be used when talking about printed matter and in that case it should be seen as a synonym for "uitgave" which translates as issue.
One thing I am certain about is that there is no Dutch word "emission".

Just an update jansimon when I put through for a translation on the internet I used what you said should be used which was emissie and it translated it to emission not issue? I am really confused now.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

jansimon I was looking on a list of railroad post offices after looking at your list for the various numbers and I found for the following:

136 Amsterdam - Emmerik
137 Arnhem-Bentheim
137 Arnhem-Oldenzaal
138 Amsterdam - Antwerpen
138 Moerdijk-Eindhoven
138 Rotterdam-Vlissingen

Which is most commonly used for Netherlands Numeral Cancel collections or do I list all of the above railroad post offices?

Or do I list in my collection what you have on your list:

136 Railroad postoffice (Amsterdam-Emmen)
137 Railroad postoffice (Arnhem-Oldenzaal)
138 Railroad postoffice (Moerdijk-Antwerpen)

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

I don't think there is a simple answer to your question. Take number 138 for example. There were (at least) 9 hammers issued to various rail routes with this number:

Moerdijk-Eindhoven (4 hammers, 24 March 1869)
Rotterdam-Antwerpen (2 hammers, 21 July 1876)
Rotterdam-Venlo (1 hammer, 5 January 1881)
Rotterdam-Vlissingen (1 hammer, 4 May 1887)
Amsterdam-Antwerpen (1 hammer, 29 January 1890)

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Stan,

I think that there are so many routes with the same number, as these routes changed over time. For example, it was not possible to go by train from Rotterdam to Antwerpen until the train bridge over the river Maas was opened 1 January 1872. Before that, you had to go by ship to Moerdijk, and then by train.

I really don't know enough about this, but it seems to me that the numbers may more properly refer to the railway company.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

As far as I know, there are not many abandoned places in the Netherlands. The few that have disappeared, did so in the 17th century or earlier because of floods and other natural disasters. There are a few places from the list of post offices with numeral cancels that had their names spelled slightly different:
Dragten became Drachten
De Lemmer became Lemmer
Hardingsveld became Hardinxveld
Koevorden became Coevorden
Bommel became Zaltbommel
Rozendaal became Roosendaal

Apart from those minor changes, none of the cities and towns from the list disappeared. The military camps that had their own cancels may have closed though (147, 155 and 159)

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

In the 19th and 20th century a number of smaller villages and hamlets were bulldozered to give space to the expanding harbours of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Delfzijl. Many hundreds of inhabitants had to move as a result, but none of these villages had a post office.
During World War 2 Petten was torn down by the Germans because it was blocking the cannons of the Atlantik wall. After the war, the town was rebuilt, but on a different location.
Near Arnhem a small town called Doorwerth was completely destroyed during the fighting over there in 1944. Only the old castle in the town was rebuilt.

or
http://www.brabantsepostzegelveiling.nl/online-auction/category/punt-stempels/

I also collect these numeral cancels. Just be aware that completion is probably impossible as some numbers are very rare.

The mounts I use are open topped mounts that are 30 mm high by 25 mm wide. I believe that the stamps themselves are 26 mm high by 21 mm wide.

One more question I have is that I am rather confused when it comes to some of the Netherlands Numeral Cancels especially the number 68 on stamps if you hold the stamp one way it looks like the number 89 how can you tell whether the number on the Netherland Numeral Cancel is 68 or 89?

I would imagine that the examples you have of cancels containing the numeral 8 should give you a clue. The top loop should be smaller than the bottom, which should then enable you to orientate the cancel correctly:

Hi Stan,

Your collection is clearly more advanced than mine. I still currently miss just over 100 numbers. The ones you miss are the more expensive values. I read an article once, that claimed that there are only 5 known copies of 259 (many forgeries though). This is not too surprizing though, as that postoffice opened 1 June, and then stopped using the 259 on 15 June 1893. A genuine one will cost you $$$$ if not $$$$$.

Telling the difference between a 6 and a 9 is difficult but can be done. One of my catalogues shows photographs, but I found that they didn't help much.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

If there could be a doubt about the cancel being a 6 or 9, for instance with numbers 6, 9, 69, 66, 99, an extra point was added. So it became 6. or 9. or 9.9 or 6.6 Apart from that, there is a difference in shape between the 6 and the 9. The "hook" of the 6 is more open.

Hi Stan,

I just checked "de poststempels van nederland 1676 - 1915" by O.M. Vellinga.

He states that the number cancel was not authorized for use to cancel postcards with a pre-printed stamp (a postal card). He then gives a list of 22 offices where this was done (at some time or other) against regulations.

The number cancel was to be used on a post card with a stamp attached, and also on postage due stamps (including on postcards).

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

If you have a complete cover, there should be a date cancel on the envelope. If you only have the stamp, you check when the stamp was introduced. 21 - Delfshaven was used until May 1st 1886 and 25 - Dirksland was used until December 16th 1890. So if you have a 21 or 25 cancel on a Princess Wilhelmina stamp, you can be sure it is Emmen or 's-Graveland. In all other cases, it is more difficult.

How did this thread suddenly become about langstempels? (Snap - missed your correct while typing.)

A langstempel is one with the name in a straight line. The short answer on their use, is that they were only used by offices that were too small to justify having their own small round cancel. Such offices were not full postoffices. Their actual use is quite involved.

There is a detailed article on them in english in Netherlands Philately, volume 3, number 1, beginning on page 11. This can be accessed at http://asnp1975.com/

This is the journal of the American Society for Netherlands Philately (shameless plug).

If you have a complete cover, there should be a date cancel on the envelope. If you only have the stamp, you check when the stamp was introduced. 21 - Delfshaven was used until May 1st 1886 and 25 - Dirksland was used until December 16th 1890. So if you have a 21 or 25 cancel on a Princess Wilhelmina stamp, you can be sure it is Emmen or 's-Graveland. In all other cases, it is more difficult.

What happens when all the stamps are the King Willem III stamps? What you say if they are on Princess Wilhemina stamps they are easy to tell which is which town.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

First of all, volume 3 is 1977/1978.

Secondly, the langstempel was supposed to be used by the sending office, but errors were made.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

I have received the following information regarding Numeral 21 and Numeral 25 but need someone to give me more information perhaps in the form of photos or drawing from a catalogue of Netherlands Numeral Cancels:

there are small differences between the cancels, but they are quite difficult to see.

no. 21

No. 21 was first issued to 'Delfshaven' and was revoked on the 1st of May 1886
On April 1st 1892 the new no. 21 was given to 'Emmen'

The 2 cancels can be distinguished from the bottom of the 2 (not sure what the difference is however)

All Wilhelmina loose hair with no. 21 are always 'Emmen'

no. 25

No. 25 was first issued to 'Dirksland' (1 april 1869 till 16 december 1890, when the office Dirksland was closed)

The new cancel 25 was given to 's-Graveland' on april 1st 1892 and has thinner figues

To make it a little bit more difficult: There are 2 cancels 25 Dirksland: the 1st 1869-1875, the 2nd 1875-1890 where the figures are also thinner then on the 1st.....

All Wilhelmina loose hair with no. 25 are always 's-Graveland'

in regards I would like to get a drawing or photo of what differences are in the figure 2 and in the numeral I would need a photo showing the differences of thinner figures.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

I sometimes feel a bit uneasy about high priced stamps and I am wondering if someone could tell me whether this Netherland Numeral cancel is real - eBay item number:361491566979 puntstempel 159 KAMP BIJ MILLIGEN op nvph 19 K. I have never read about forgeries in the Numeral Cancels but I suppose there are some.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

Forgeries of numeral cancels do exist. Simple examples are those which change a 1 into a 4 or to add a couple of digits to a 5 using a pencil. (Not in this case.)

I don't know enough to determine if the ebay example is genuine or not. It would help to do some research, though. The 159 cancel was issued to Kamp bij Millingen on 20 August 1872. According to my NVPH catalogue, NVPH 19 K was issued between 1884 and 1887. Was the camp still open then? I don't know, but it certainly was closed by 1892 when the number 159 was re-issued to Kamp bij Rijen.

I am having trouble translating the following, I put it through the google translation but in English it does not make any sense, what I need translated is the following:

"Lijst van post kantoren met daar achter de datum waar op zij puntstempel uitgereikt" my on line dutch to English translated it to "List of post offices with there behind the date where on the point stamp issued" which doe not make any sense. Any fellow Dutchman or woman out there that can help me?

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

List of post offices with the date the 'puntstempel' was issued. That is what the Dutch sentence reads. Of course, 'puntstempel' is translated as numeral cancel which it really should translate to 'point cancel'!
My catalog does not give a precise date for 19D other than 1872-1875.

I had a look at that lot.

The first "1" is a different font and size. I think that it must be part of some other marking, but what I don't know.

I'm sure you noticed the damage on the stamp.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hello everyone, I trust you are all having a good day.

I am in need of a translation from Dutch to English - there are a number of times when reading about the Netherland and Dutch Indies Numeral cancellations that they use the phrase emission eg. Emission Wilhelmina what does Emission mean when you put it through the dutch to English translation Emission means Emission? does it actual mean in English let me use it in an example Wilhelmina Issue?

The Dutch word 'emissie' should be translated as 'issue', not 'emission'.

Hi jansimon it was an actual stamp site that I was on that had stamp pages and at the end they had one page which listed the colors of Dutch East Indies cancels and had spaces with a heading that said EMISSION WILHELMINA 1892 was Emission perhaps a misspelling for what you said it might be? because no matter what translation service I use no one has a translation for Emission should I then use Dutch word 'emissie' instead of Emission??

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

was it a dutch site?
Perhaps it was translated automatically. There are different ways of translating the word. It can have a meaning in physics, like the emission of particles etc. but it can also be used when talking about printed matter and in that case it should be seen as a synonym for "uitgave" which translates as issue.
One thing I am certain about is that there is no Dutch word "emission".

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

jansimon I was looking on a list of railroad post offices after looking at your list for the various numbers and I found for the following:

136 Amsterdam - Emmerik
137 Arnhem-Bentheim
137 Arnhem-Oldenzaal
138 Amsterdam - Antwerpen
138 Moerdijk-Eindhoven
138 Rotterdam-Vlissingen

Which is most commonly used for Netherlands Numeral Cancel collections or do I list all of the above railroad post offices?

Or do I list in my collection what you have on your list:

136 Railroad postoffice (Amsterdam-Emmen)
137 Railroad postoffice (Arnhem-Oldenzaal)
138 Railroad postoffice (Moerdijk-Antwerpen)

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Hi Stan,

I don't think there is a simple answer to your question. Take number 138 for example. There were (at least) 9 hammers issued to various rail routes with this number:

Moerdijk-Eindhoven (4 hammers, 24 March 1869)
Rotterdam-Antwerpen (2 hammers, 21 July 1876)
Rotterdam-Venlo (1 hammer, 5 January 1881)
Rotterdam-Vlissingen (1 hammer, 4 May 1887)
Amsterdam-Antwerpen (1 hammer, 29 January 1890)

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

Stan,

I think that there are so many routes with the same number, as these routes changed over time. For example, it was not possible to go by train from Rotterdam to Antwerpen until the train bridge over the river Maas was opened 1 January 1872. Before that, you had to go by ship to Moerdijk, and then by train.

I really don't know enough about this, but it seems to me that the numbers may more properly refer to the railway company.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

As far as I know, there are not many abandoned places in the Netherlands. The few that have disappeared, did so in the 17th century or earlier because of floods and other natural disasters. There are a few places from the list of post offices with numeral cancels that had their names spelled slightly different:
Dragten became Drachten
De Lemmer became Lemmer
Hardingsveld became Hardinxveld
Koevorden became Coevorden
Bommel became Zaltbommel
Rozendaal became Roosendaal

Apart from those minor changes, none of the cities and towns from the list disappeared. The military camps that had their own cancels may have closed though (147, 155 and 159)

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

In the 19th and 20th century a number of smaller villages and hamlets were bulldozered to give space to the expanding harbours of Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Delfzijl. Many hundreds of inhabitants had to move as a result, but none of these villages had a post office.
During World War 2 Petten was torn down by the Germans because it was blocking the cannons of the Atlantik wall. After the war, the town was rebuilt, but on a different location.
Near Arnhem a small town called Doorwerth was completely destroyed during the fighting over there in 1944. Only the old castle in the town was rebuilt.

re: Netherland Numeral Cancellations

I regularly see selections or small collections of numeral cancels being offered on Dutch sites (look for "puntstempels") but there are also dealers who offer them. See for instance here:
http://bredasepostzegelhandel.nl/stempels/nederland/punt/
or
http://www.brabantsepostzegelveiling.nl/online-auction/category/punt-stempels/
or
http://www.postzegelwinkel-amsterdam.nl/puntstempels/
(I do not know if you can read Dutch, as all of these sites are in one language = Dutch only)
