Not that Tex doesn't know this but it pays to mind your cancels when plating. That particular cancel in black is an indicator of a late usage. It could be helpful to also observe the paper characteristics as I've mentioned before.

Good point Winston.

Use anything you can to get a date range of use that intersects when a particular plate was in use.

Plate 1E was July 1 1851 until about end of May 1852.
Plate 2 Dec 55 through 1857.
Plate 3 1856 - 1857.

Many cancels are distinct to the 1851 or 52 timeframe.
Such a use would eliminate Pl 2/3. (New York Slug for example)

When I first looked at that strip I knew I knew that Philly cancel, but I just couldn't remember when it was used. After Winston's post I now recall a 56 or 57 use of it that I used to have. Note that a late use doesn't eliminate 1E but it's much less likely.

njs - Hi and Thanks. That's a really good reference to show the short right side ornaments.

My apologies, tried to upload the exact picture as I have, but here it goes rotated. In addition, was not allowed to delete the second entry.

Aurora, the scratches along the right side of the design are definitive for identifying your stamp as #24. More specifically, the pattern of the scratches identify it as being from Relief C (there are six reliefs, A-F, that produced #24). They come from plates 5, 7, 8, 9 and 10.
