There are three types of Missent marks used in Berwick.
The first of these is a three line, boxed, MISSENT/TO/BERWICK measuring 30mm x 14mm. This is the scarcest mark of the three. Known only in black it was used between 1813 to 1815.
The second mark is a two line, boxed, MISSENT.TO / BERWICK. Measuring 39mm x 19mm it was previously only recorded in black but I also have an example in green. It was used between 1813 and 1832.
The third and final mark is a two line, unboxed, MISSENT/TO BERWICK. This hand-stamp measures 40mm x 10mm and is known in black, blue and green.
There is only one 1d mark recorded for Berwick. Wilcox and Jay in the British County Catalogue of Postal History volume 5 state that this mark is known only in red, but the three examples that I have seen are black.
The Berwick ‘Too Late’ mark is known used between 1819 and 1852. The words are within a rectangle with chamfered corners measuring 49mm x 13mm. Previously known in both green and black I also have one in blue.
Penny Post marks.
Wilcocks & Jay* list just two Penny Post marks for Berwick, one unboxed and the other boxed.
*Wilcocks & Jay -The County Catalogue of Postal History Vol.5.
The un-boxed Penny Post mark.
This mark measures 44mm x 11mm and is found in various shades of blue-green.
Previously known used from 1832-1837 the example I show below is dated 1827, some five years earlier than previously recorded.
The boxed Penny Post mark.
This mark is known used from 1838-1839 and is found only in shades of Green.
The example below was posted in Wien (Vienna) addressed to Broadmeadows, Berwick on Tweed.
The cover has a manuscript charge of 2/3 , this being the charge to Berwick. The letter then had to be sent on to Broadmeadown, 6 miles from Berwick, so the Berwick Penny Post mark was added for this part of the journey, bringing the total to be paid to 2/4, recorded in the top left of the cover.
