re: Ireland Local Post or Cinderella?

I believe that’s a meter.

Just checked my shelf of Irish reference material and couldn’t find any info on meters. The Eire Philatelic Association will undoubtedly have something in the John Blessington Memorial Library for those interested in learning more about Irish metered mail.

There is a free online Worldwide Meter Stamp Catalog: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Internatio ...

The above is only half of a meter, the other part being the town mark which has the town name of origin and date of imprinting.

My guess is that this is catalog# BA2 made by Universal and nicknamed the Midget.

Doesn't look anywhere long enough to be 19.5 inches.

There are no meters that are 19.5 inches long. I am not sure what you mean.

re: Ireland Local Post or Cinderella?

Sorry Antonio, I was being stupid, The conversion of a meter in length is approximately 39 inches, so half would be 19.5. Us oldies from UK use Metre rather than the USA meter, unless we are referencing gas/electric/fuel etc types.
Put it down to senility.

It is I, Vic, who was being stupid enough to miss a great sense of humor.

Oh what an Excellent meter resource! Thanks for sharing that link, Antonio!

Here’s a pic showing the other “19 1/2” inches of a somewhat similar “meter”;

re: Ireland Local Post or Cinderella?

Could it be from a newspaper wrapper or other postal stationary?

I missed it too, Antonio, and sorry to say it was too clever by half

Nicely done, Vic
