Perfins on Wembley Stamps
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 kindly sent me the second update on the booklet as follows.
This second update covers additional information concerning Wembley perfins which I have received from collectors since the last list appeared in 1994. The total number of different dies is now increased to 60 and the number of stamps reported to 468. I am grateful to all those who have contributed additional information.

has been suggested to me by several people that IOM (I1928.01) might have some
connection with the Isle of Man. I am informed that the "Isle of Man
Official Board of Advertising of
Guides and Exhibition Pictures" had a stand at the gate of Harmony entrance to the Palace of Industry in 1924 so that such an identity is possible but in no way proven.
John Nelson finishes by acknowledging information received from, and his thanks to, Dennis Bundy, Bill Tonkin, Alan Sabey, Rosemary Smith, Mike Oxley, John Grier and Ian Hamill.
