    I think those who collect odd or with error stamps are willing to pay that price. :D

    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.

    Gunny:

    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.

    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...

    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?


    Regards, James.

    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.

    Hello,
    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.

    0615 2217e 22C.jpg

    Next up is Scott 985 from 1949 that fills my February 27th spot.

    0227 985 3C.jpg

    Lastly, here's a Scott 1229 from 1963 to fill the spot for November 20th.

    1120 1229 5C.jpg

    This now gives me 94 stamps with a date cancellation.
