All,

Received this R3c in a mishmash lot today.

I have been able to find several straight line canx for this company, but no images like this (a CDS without the date...).

Has anyone seen this canx before?

Thanks in advance!

I have this one that I purchased in an Eric Jackson auction a couple of years ago.

I also have a similar circular cancel, with a fancy swirl in the middle. Will try to get a scan later today.

I find it interesting that the circular handstamp has no date. Most of the circular handstamps from various contemporaneous companies in my experience have dates.

Obviously pre-FDA so no ingredients listed. A combo of morphine and codeine to help calm the little ones?

"Great Infantile Regulator". Sure could use that in today's world. Not a particularly scarce cancel though.

A search of eBay for "Dr. Seth Arnold" showed up several interesting items at what seem to be reasonable prices.

Thank goodness I already have way too many collections and not nearly enough stamp money...

I mentioned that I had the Dr. Seth Arnold handstamp with some scroll work in the center.



Here is the press printed straight line Dr. Seth Arnold cancel on the 1 Proprietary First Issue stamp.

In addition to the scroll work, the typeface on your Arnold circular cancel appears to be different. Am I seeing things?

No, I think that the typeface is different. Your eyes do not deceive you.

Ron,

Shame the scroll isn't shifted slightly the other way.

Would have made a great mustache canx!

Hi StateRevs, I have seen a lot of this cancel in your original posting.

Seems to me (my guess) its very common cancel.
