By John Nelson


            Members will remember some time ago John Nelson of the Perfin Society asked for help on a listing he was making of perfins on Wembley Stamps. The Perfin Society has published the results of his research as reported in our Newsletter No. 30 in a 16 page A4 size booklet. John has sent me an update on the booklet as follows.


            Members (of the Perfin Society) may wish to note the following additions to the Catalogue of these perfins published by the Society in 1993. The total number of different dies is now increased to 59 and the number of stamps reported to 444. I am grateful to all those who have contributed additional information.
