Circular Date Stamps are the bread-and-butter postmarks used on everyday mail by Post Office counters across the UK. A CDS postmark is very straight forward and only features the town’s name and the date. There is no picture. It you wanted to use a CDS postmark because the town is relevant to the stamp issue, you would have to go to the town’s local Post Office to get it. This 1980 Christmas cover has a CDS postmark from Nazareth (Wales!).
