    Hi Richard:

    You can eliminate the 2 being a 3 as Booth Bay Harbor used a flag cancel only during 1926 - 1928.

    Thanks Don yes it is a 2 at closer look. Can I ask were you found the cancel listing. I would like to use it for future reference Than You All though mine does look like a 634a it could not be with that cancel date

    Hi Richard:

    The information about the Booth Bay Harbor is in the Standard Flag Cancel Encyclopedia by Frederick Langford. Multiple editions printed, mine is the Second Completely Revised Edition, 1965. The listing for Booth Bay Harbor is on page 19 of my edition.
