I'm researching the cancellers used in Australian occupied German New Guinea and during the early civil administration period.  These include the post office date-stamps and various interim district office handstamps.  I'm particularly interested in those used ca. 1920 - 1928 at Eitape, Manus & Morobe.  Some variants are seen used at Rabaul & Madang.  Examples from my collection are shown below:

These canceller/handstamp types are listed by J.H. Powell and in Loughran's update of Powell (2007).

I'm especially researching the weird or bizarre date-line configurations of these three date-stamps (Manus, Morobe & Madang):

If anyone has examples similar to the preceding 3 I'd like to see a scan posted here.  Examples on covers with backstamps would be especially nice to confirm dates of usage.  Below are two tables displaying the range of sample strikes from my collection for both Manus & Morobe.

I have made a sub-forum called Australian Occupied New Guinea (under member collections) which you can add your info to.
