Cancel #10 is for St. Peter Parish and #11 is for St. Lucy (there were 11
numbered parish post offices). The style of these two cancels is type C-1,
the first of the Obliterators, as classified by Clarke, Radford & Cave in
their Barbados Post Office Markings to 1981 and

obliterators, type C-2 (also with Parish #'s). These are two of the Parishes
which have three bars above the number and four below.
