Here is a Clifton registered cover dated 19 October 1904 but without the registered handstamp. This may explain why this registered handstamp cancel is so rare. Possibly it was mislaid or damaged or lost or perhaps the postmaster was careless with its application. More Clifton registered covers will need to be unearthed to get a better idea, but if this did occur, it would have hapened sometime after May 1901. Seen on the Queensland Facebook group
