Somerton "720" horizontal and vertical oval cancels

The two sheets below have examples of the Somerton "720" 1844-type horizontal oval cancel, from 1844 and 1855.  The cancel is known used in black from May 1844 to March 1874, and in blue from September 1849 to January 1852.

Somerton also had two 3-bar vertical oval cancels, the first with a dot (so "720.") was issued in January 1875, and the one shown below without a dot (so "720") was issued in July 1881.
