I recently came across a used Gilbert Islands stamp that appears to have a variation of Vernon’s cancellation #59 (the Abemama Collector of Revenue cancellation). The mark is from Butaritari, not Abemama. Vernon does not discuss a Butaritari version of this cancellation. Has a Butaritari version been documented elsewhere?

I have attached a few photos of the 5s stamp, and I have include examples of the Abemama version for comparison. The two Abemema versions are the 1d and 2 ½ d stamps (the two on the left side in the photos).

Thank you for any assistance or insights you can provide.
