dc.description.abstract(Reference to Dr. Anthony Abela Medici's article which has appeared in the PSM Journal-Vol33/1 - April2004) I fully agree with Dr. Abela Medici that the COSPICUA double-ring with killer block spacers (COS - 4) was used prior to 1940, not "in favour" only, as some fellow MALTA specialists abroad often suggest. I admit that the use of this datestamp was randomly used before 1940 as the Cospicua Branch Post Office was "adequately served with two other cancellors" at that time. However its use prior to 1940 cannot be excluded. I would like to add a few other interesting examples to those submitted by Dr. Abela Medici supporting the existence of (COS- 4) strikes adequately applied to covers dispatched before 1940.
