I thought it was about time I updated this thread!
I revealed in the November issue that it appears the BAC stampers were produced by Simplex Manufacturing Co. It is thought that a small number of Simplex machines have survived, although I have been unable to confirm the whereabouts of any survivors. I have just one picture of a surviving machine, which sold at auction in France a few years ago.

Here's a picture I published in the November issue, of a wonderful collection of cast iron machines, including a BAC/Simplex stamper. I reported in the magazine that the location is Broadstairs, Kent. However, I have since learnt that it was actually Ramsgate (a few miles down the road)!

Adding to the relevant thread, but the below stamper which finished at a Cardiff auction today appears not to be like Roovers or BAC styles, but looks to have some age as well. Obviously some of it has been replaced or add to like the marque, legs and possibly the top piece of wood, but that silver dial is very distinctive.

Price for an old item and working seemed cheap as well at £650 +£137 commission

Anyone know anything about this machine...
