I think those who collect odd or with error stamps are willing to pay that price.
A Scott 1354 for March 20th from Chicago, Illinois.
A Scott E12, Special Delivery stamp, for April 16th.
Finally, a Scott 1045 for October 2nd from Waycross, Georgia.
My last four for awhile.
First up is a really cool block of four of the Air Mail Special Delivery, Scott CE2 from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania for April 7th. I really love this design.
August 2nd gives us an Air Mail stamp honoring the landing on the moon, Scott C76.
For August 8th we have another Air Mail stamp, Scott C25.
And lastly, we have a Scott 641 for November 4th.
I have to agree the block of 4 of the special delivery airmail stamps is gorgeous. You are making good progress on the date cancel calender!
That Scott 1354 looks nice with that Use Zip Code stamp.
Added some more to the collection. These 4 bring the total of stamps with individual dates to 88.
First up is a Scott 319 posted in Elgin, Illinois on January 18th.
Next is a Scott 803 posted from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on January 27th, 1949.
Next is a Scott 734 posted at Dayton, Montana on February 8th, 1935. Top stamp has date, kept the second stamp with it as it shows the year.
Last one for today is a Scott 841 posted somewhere in New York on June 4th, 1943.
I sorted out a group of stamps last weekend and there was about 20 or so with clear dates. I put them in a glassine and set them aside... don't have time at present to see if they fit some of the holes I have. But I am sure that they will...
I bet you're right. I wonder if the "6" after the "N.Y." is a postal abbreviation of some kind for the New York City area.
I think that is a C as in N.Y.C. (New York City)
Could be but it does look a little like a 6 with the 'ghost' curl into the back of the character.
Didn't I read somewhere that NYC PO was divided into separate boroughs with their own numerical designators? I know that pre-ZIP a lot of the larger cities had designators as such.
Added 3 more to the collection. These 3 bring the total of stamps with individual dates to 90.
First up is a Scott 562 for April 5th. This one actually replaces one that I had in the collection as the date is more legible.
Next is a Scott 642 for June 16th.
And a Scott 796 for July 5th.
Have always thought the Virginia Dare stamp was one of the prettiest stamps in that series. The story line behind it is even more intriguing...
A true rarity: February 81, 1935
Yeah, I noticed that. I used some deductive reasoning to figure out that was Feb 8th. It hurt my head a little.
Hello all, Is New York City divided into 6 districts?
1: Manhattan, 2: Brooklyn, 3: Queens, 4: The Bronx, 5: Staten Island, 6: Nassau County
Could they be the early postal districts? and in which order were they were created?
I believe SATX is absolutely right to call this a 6 and I was wrong about it being a C. Here's a copy of a Brooklyn cover from the Jim Forte web site with a 5 in the postmark right after the N.Y. abbreviation. If there is a 5, there is probably a 6 too. It may be a station number or a cancelling machine number. If it were a zone number it seems like it would be placed between Brooklyn and N.Y. in the cancel dial.
Note that the address is in Brooklyn, 6, N.Y.
And also remember that a lot of folks walk in New York City and may have just posted in the closest box to their job or even their house... one can only wonder.
Recently, I developed necrosis of the femoral head caused by steroid treatment of autoimmune disease.
5 months I was on sick leave. In early May of this year, I implanted endoprosthesis hip right (it was destroyed in 90%). The hip joint is left destroyed also in a similar way and require as soon as possible implantation of the prosthesis.
My finances are already on a big minus (loan at friends).
I once repeatedly participated in charity auctions, and now I am in need.
At Allegro I has exhibited as much as possible philately, painting, clocks, watches + spare, old books, etc.
If something your interested please of bidding.
address of the auction:

Added three more to my collection. I've noticed that all of my previous picture uploads are gone. I had them hosted online and linked to the pictures. Decided to stop hosting them online but forgot that a lot of them were linked to this thread. I'll reupload them soon.
Up first is a Scott 2217e from 1986 that fills the spot for June 15th.
Next up is Scott 985 from 1949 that fills my February 27th spot.
Lastly, here's a Scott 1229 from 1963 to fill the spot for November 20th.
This now gives me 94 stamps with a date cancellation.
