The front-of-the-book folks have an ongoing thread for socked-on-the-nose postal cancels, but as we revenue collectors are a breed apart , I thought we should have our own ongoing thread.

Post 'em if you got 'em!

I'll get the ball rolling with 3 new acquisitions.

That's an interesting one I've not seen before. I wonder if the P. is a relative of S. in the late date S.R.V.D. cancels (S.R. van Duzer, patent medicine, New York) or if it is a completely different company.

Believe it or not, that's an S, not a P. I bought the stamp from Richard Friedberg, and, as I recall, it is ex-Morissey. I posted it earlier in another thread, and I believe revcollector commented that it was a scarcer van Duzer cancel. I also have this:

Van Duzer was a major drug wholesaler in NYC at the time. The black printed cancels are fairly common as printed cancels go. According to Holcombe there are 7 varieties with dates from 1865-1882 on the 1,2,3, and 4 cent stamps. The red cancel is much scarcer, and is not mentioned in Holcombe. Being a handstamp, perhaps it was only used until the printed cancels were available.
The private die stamp above was for the $1 product and was first issued in the spring of 1869.
The company was housed in a large four story building in lower Manhattan and was very sucessful for many years

Has anyone attributed that H.B. oval cancel with the solid block in center? I've seen them periodically, but always without context...

Don, I'm curious about the "J. Mc C" cancels on the 5-cent Certificates. I have one and, despite repeated efforts, have never been able to identify it.

Rusty - Identifying Socked Cancels:
I believe your "SDH" cancel is attributable to
Samuel D. Hastings (see Wikipedia).
At one point he was State Treasurer of Wisconsin; I have seen many of his handstamps on various revenues, some connected with documents I found (and now are long gone).
I believe his offspring and he himself had business here in Green Bay in the early 20th century.

I have seen both around over the years but I have not seen them on anything, which is the only way to ID them for sure. At this point it would take some luck to discover who they were, since we don't even know where they were located. All we can really assume is that they were either of some size or were small but reasonably successful, since they paid to have a handstamp cancel created.

Although these are nowhere near as elaborate as some of those posted previously, I particularly like these because of the SOTN cancels:

Nice stamps everyone. Bill, greetings from Minnesota. I haven't found any cancels from our state officers! Here are a few more that I have scanned:

Love the contrasting color on that one. The gray 30-centers make great canvases for contrasting cancels.

Some of mine:












Brown ink, VERY scarce. Even more scarce than green ink handstamps.
