Hello all.
Just bought this stamp and was looking for your opinions since I am not a US specialist.
Also, if the stamp is original, can you decipher the town in the cancel?

Looks legit to me.

Blue cancel on them is usually Baltimore.

Looks like a nice four margin copy to me.

Congratulations on the buy!

Can't tell, but the "D" rules out Baltimore

Yea this one was causing my eyes to cross as well.

Philadelphia is another common blue CDS in this timeframe.

There are many others, however.

With a D and a P, Philadelphia looks like a good guess. Thanks

It is a nice 4 margin stamp, Codexluminati. It looks like a great buy.

My copy only has three margins and bottom is cut on the line. Also, the top right corner was clipped for some reason. It has a black and red cancel. I cannot separate the black cancel from the stamp to see it. The black cancel looks like numbers on his forehead, but could not be because of the small size.

Any ideas on where the red cancels came from?

Someday I will have one of those. Meanwhile, I'm working on the pictorials.
