Dimensions:
Crest A dexter cubit arm bendwise holding a sword in sinister bend
Possibilities for Identification: 
Nothing in Fairbairn's Crests matches this stamp
Heraldic Charges: 
Dimensions:
Crest A demi-lion holding over its sinister shoulder a battleaxe bendwise
Possibilities for Identification: 
None of Fairbairn’s crests depict this configuration. Plates 15/4 and 15/5 display demi-lions holding the battleaxe with both paws, while in 16/8 and 16/10 the lions are issuing out of a mural coronet. In plate 16/12 and 16/14 the lions are affronty. The closest is 15/6 in which the battleaxe is held with the right paw.

Crest A beehive surrounded by 5 bees volant
Possibilities for Identification:

Dimensions:
Arms On a fess between three lions passant three estoiles
Heraldic Charges: 
Unidentified Stamp
Dimensions:
Arms Three fishes naiant fessways in pale, the middlemost conturned
Possibilities for Identification: 
The arms Azure three garvine fishes naiant fessways in pale argent the middlemost one conturned were granted to George Garvine, writer of Irvine (Lyon Register 1672 77). The arms of Peebles are Gules three salmon counternaiant in pale proper. Though the present grant only dates to 18 December 1894, the arms have been used by the borough since the middle ages. Adam Girdwood died at Peebles in 1838 aged 1831, so it seems likely that the arms on the stamp are those of Peebles.
