Query here

Is Cindy attempting to source the font itself, as foundry metal, Lino slugs or as a digital font or is the quest to find a source for the Stamp Printing Outfit ??

For sure it is not an Austrian Trodat rig for all of those are san-serif fonts - Helvetica at a pinch.

There were a range of John Bull kits - obviously British but I have never had a catalog for these - nor do I know if they are still available.

Another point is Cindy's whereabouts which could influence the availability of stamp sets of foreign manufacture.

Just a thought or two to make life a bit harder - a little more info could smooth the way and maybe even get a result !!
