A quick Google search tells us that there are Mickey Creeks in both Queensland and Tasmania. I leave you to decide which!

Hi Pooh

The top stamp has a very faint 3, only minute traces of the 3 is seen; and the stamp is from Mickey's Creek in Queensland (you can see the "Q").

The bottom stamp is 1938, this stamp was not used in 1958.

I have no idea where in Qld or Tasmania Mickey's Creek would be situated.

Am I the only one that can see "NSW" at the bottom of the "Mickey's" Creek postmark???

It's actually Hickey's Creek, located about 70km inland from South West Rocks, on the mid-north coast

Actually I should correct the info about the top stamp, I meant to say that the area is Murgon Qld, not Mickey's Creek. As the stamp in the bottom image is not enlarged, the "H" looks like an "M". I originally thought the bottom of the postmark was "NSW", but my vision has been hazy this past week (diabetes) and couldn't quite recognise it, so I thought nothing more of it.

re: Where is this stamp from

If any part of the numbering of a postmark is missing, it is mostly caused by the cancellation not pressed efficiently enough to create a deep impression on the envelope.

Other causes can be previous collectors manhandling the stamp; also left in a solution to remove the stamp from the envelope.
