    Looking for more information .When was this cancel used. It can be narrowed down by its miss spelling( Ellicottsville) should be Ellicottville New York around 1857 1860. Letter came with it no date. IMG_20210815_0009.jpg IMG_20210815_0010.jpg

    what im going for Don is dec 1857 earliest cover. by tracking the error there should be a firm time line.

    Hi Richard,
    I have seen misspellings of Ellicottville well into the late 19th century. That will not narrow down any search of a time frame for this particular cover. Being a small hamlet the length of time such a cancel might remain in service is not likely to narrow it down either. I'm not certain that without a year date either on the letter or the cover that a year can be ascertained before demonetization.
