I just pulled these from a mixed lot I purchased and will gladly donate them to your one-per-day set if you can use them. Let me know at email@example.com Thanks, Terry
Appreciate the offer, but I still have a couple 1000 stamps to go through. When I get towards the end I'll probably put a bounty on the dates that I need.
On second thought, I've sent you an email. Have a good one.
Gunny...how are you doing with your collection ?
I recently found this cancel ...Feb 29
That is a key date indeed. Are you willing to part with it? Send me a message with what you collect and I'm sure we can work out a trade. Appreciate it.
First day of use, Jan 2 1893, New York
just out of curiosity: what does indicate the year 1893 as the year
of cancelling ?
The 2 is weak curved and thin and does not line up with the month, compared to 2 in 1894 is bold and lines up with Jan ,All so The killer cancel lines Are 1893 type with vertical lines not horizontal. . .The real first day was Dec,31, 1892. That would be a nice cancel to find on stamp.
