The U.S. local post stamps are commonly reprinted and forged. Larry Lyons 3-volume "The Identifier for Carriers, Locals, Fakes, Forgeries and Bogus Posts of the United States" is the reference for identifying these. Crosby's is listed in volume 1.

You may wish to change your thread title, to assist students to find this thread

Something like US : Locals : Crosbys city Post.

Cheers Don,

Interesting to read 1870 "Unperforated", perhaps "Imperforate" had not joined the jargon at that time.
