Taunton - Too Late !

A couple of examples of the Taunton framed "Too Late" handstamp from 1836 and 1837 (in use from 1829-1843).  This handstamp was applied if post arrived at the Post Office too late to catch the mail wagon or ride and was to indicate that this was why the post might arrive a day later than the sender/recipient thought it should have.
