I found these in a U.S. revenue mixture. Since 20th century material isn't my playground, I figured I'd ask. These cancels do not look postal to me. Since there are examples of 20th century postage stamps used as revenues (considerably more scarce than their 19th century counterparts), I though these might be revenue usages lifted from documents.

So are these cancels postal, fiscal, parcel post?

Thanks.

Registry or special delivery cancels seems likely.

The 10c Monroe cancels look like fiscal or revenue somehow to me (inexperienced really) because of the colour of them.

But then, why would there be 3-4 strioke of a date stamp plus a N L and something before it, which. I believe, is something to do with parcel handling, if my memory serves me correctly.

It could also be a made up cancel to look like a postal strike, but then again, would someone do that? Perhaps a stamp collecting postal clerk or worker thought stamps looked better with more cancels or strikes? Or special cancels where worth more perhaps?

The 500 or 900 is confusing.


On the Liberty, it could be anything, but the mahenta colour of the cancel again reminds me of a revenue type of strike.

Nice looking stamps anyway.

It's just a rubber datestamp, the kind that can be changed every day and was sold by the millions. Without a company name or some other information to tie them to revenue use they have to be considered postally used.

Part of a straight line date cancel, I've also seen similar after a "Forwarded" hand stamp. I'll post a couple of examples later when I get home.
