Bath 4-Bar Vertical Oval Duplex (4VOD) cancels

There are five impressions registered in the Stamp Impression Book of Bath "53" 4VOD cancels with a flat topped "3", but other handstamps not in the SIB were also used - at least 24 different ones can be distinguished.

Here are examples of three cancels, all on envelopes bearing a pair of ½d bantam stamps.  Regulations said that each stamp should be separately cancelled but this has been done on only one of the covers.
