Taunton Too Late, 1829

The entire below has a really crisp example of the Taunton "TOO LATE" cachet.  It was used in September 1829 and must have been soon after the introduction of the handstamp which is known used from 1829 to 1843.

The entire is from Taunton to Dublin with a postal charge of 1/3d.  This would have been 1/- for the General Post from Taunton to Holyhead via Shrewsbury, plus 1d for the Menai Bridge, plus 2d for the Holyhead-Dublin packet.
