Could someone please identify the attached. I looked at length in my Town and Type and Bureau catalog. The 8 is closest to L16 but is the wrong date, I did not see a listing for for the 10 with CSCo only for Sears and the postage due appears to be a DLE?
Thanks
Paul

8cent Boston is PSS-204 with handstamp dated (Sears)
10c Boston is PSS-61 with handstamp dated (not Sears)
postage due is Norwood PSS-703 double impression (not a double line)

Thanks chasa! Looks like I am at the beginning of the learning curve on T&T precancel.

A tremendous amount of work has been done by Precancel Stamp Society (PSS) members to tabulate and identify those handstamp dated controls. CSCo was used by Chemical Supply Co (aka Central Scientific Co) in Boston.
We have a database program to do searching, checklisting, counting, and album creation.

Does one need to be a PSS member to get access to this database.
