Hello, I live in the USA... I was trying to find out anything I could about the Postman fortune teller, so I really appreciate all you guys for the help.

I also like the forum, it’s very informative and interesting... This is the first forum I’ve been on, so trying to figure it out.

As you can see, I mainly collect old Stamp Machines. Have you ever seen any like these, but made in the UK? I have included some pictures of my collection. The last two are of a black machine which was made outside the US, I believe in the UK, and I do not have one, just pictures of it. I would love to get one, if anyone knows of any sources.

:WELCOME: to the Forum Bud. That’s a very unique collection you have there. Thank you for letting us see them.

I’m afraid I don’t think I’ve seen the British machine you’re looking for, but others here may be more knowledgeable on these.

Here are some other stamp vendors culled from the Arena. The first of these, the sheet metal American Stamp Vender, like one your collection, sold at auction today, for £100 and the cast iron one next to it sold for 460 Australian dollars last Sunday.
