    It really frustrates me, when they cancel with a pen.:mad: To me, that totally ruins the stamp.:eek:

    I recently got this ,amongst other nice things, from a friend and forum member. It's in relatively good condition and I'm very happy to add it to my humble little collection! Although it's not technically a stamp it does belong with the Columbian world exposition Chicago tickets and stamp issues.

    What's wrong with a pen cancel?
    Just looking for your opinions, I have never heard anyone say that, but I am a relative newbie.

    I just look for eye appeal. Some cancels ruin a stamp, some don't, and some even add to the eye appeal.
    None of these conditions seem to apply to one type of cancel, nor does one type of cancel seem to garauntee any one result.

    The ONLY cancel that ruins a stamp every time, IMHO, is a 'cut cancel'.
