Nice little lot. It wasn't cheap by any stretch, but a nice variety of material. Many of them are fairly inexpensive. Most of the cancels I already have, but the main reason for buying it was the last four pages, all 3-cent and 4-cent types with Proprietary cancels. Some of these I have not seen before, so that made it worthwhile.

One nice potential bonus when it comes to proprietary cancels: because they tend to be late dates with respect to the range of first issue usage, the possibility of silk papers is increased. Once I start breaking it down, that's something I will be checking.

Sellers pictures, so not the greatest detail in the world. The writeups are the seller's as well.

Nice pick up. Unfortunately, it looks like the previous owner cut some from the original documents. Let us know how you progress looking through them.

Who knows when they were cut from document. It could have been the 7th owner before this one. :)

I have sold plenty of revenues on document pieces... that was how I got them.

A few nice match & medicine provisional cancels, and any green cancel is nice to find. Nice to get the Andrew Dougherty printed on a proprietary. It does come on the playing cards as well.

I don't believe the G.W. cancel is printed, I think it's just a quality handstamp. It and the Quicksilver mining cancel are not particularly scarce.

Correct, not printed, but a nice strike. Both cancels aren't scarce, but they go for nice money.

Yes. Seller offered this and a couple other lots at crazy "moon money" prices, and as expected got no bidders. I contacted him and negotiated a package deal that made the cost much more reasonable

Richard gets $12 for QM, and the GW should not be worth more.

The GW is on an R47a which catalogs $50, and it looks to be a superior example of the stamp without even considering the cancel.

Now, if you just meant the cancels in general, on stamps of nominal value, then I would agree.

Thanks for posting. I'll have to work through duplicate revenues looking for good cancels to expand my collection!
