Celebrating 40 Years in Service of Philately.
In India, all India Series of obliterators were introduced in 1873 and used till 1884. Each postal circle was allotted a letter that was generally the initial letter of the name of the circle. Baroda was allotted number 17 and "B" denotes Bombay circle.
Above is a postmark of BARODA R. H. (Receiving House), with two bars below "B-17", broken at center with a numeral "1" placed in the blank space. Baroda Philatelic Society has adopted this postmark as a logo of the society.
