As promised here are some scans from the recent small lot I won. I would imagine most of these are common, particularly the NY Central Railroad cancels. I've seen the HR Stevens cancels before but I don't know who they are or what they did though. The blue NY Gold Exchange cancel is interesting! The R54a hasn't a neat cancel and unfortunately has a crease. And the pair of R26c's has "hanging chads". What's with that?

I think the Rouse's Point cancel is for the Ogdensburg and Lake Champlain Railroad.

Hi Southpaw, and thank you for that great exhibition!
I just wanted to answer your note about the "hanging chads". I suppose you are talking about the "blind perforations"?
That is where the perforator was either misadjusted or very dirty; the pins did not go all the way through the paper.
Blind perforations are fairly common on stamps - even on modern ones!
