Bath 1738 and 1739

The British County Catalogue (published 1990) did not have any handstamps between 1734 and 1742.  Here are two examples of a new handstamp measuring 26x8 mm, from June 1738 and October 1739.

I do not have an example of the handstamp in the BCC from 1742, which should be fairly distinctive at 26 x 12 mm - the same width as the handstamps above but 50% taller.
