Internal Postmarks and Registration Markings of Liberia

small map of Liberian post offices to 1960

This section about postal markings is mainly based on Philip Cockrill’s LIBERIA Series Booklet No. 8: “The Internal Postmarks & Cancellations”.
Some of the post offices listed here used alternate town names on their early postmarks: “Bassa” and “Grand Bassa” cancels are from Buchanan, “Sinoe” from Greenville. Some had their name changed, like Paynefield to Spriggs Payne, or Tchien to Zwedru, and some seem to have vanished altogether, e.g. “Arthington”, which is only known from the 1890s.
