I found these 2 covers in a box of covers that I recently bought.
I am getting better in understanding specific US descriptions of postmarks. But I am not sure, so I thought let me ask the SCF.
Both covers were send from New York to the same person in Perrysburgh NY.
Both have a numeral 4 cancel.
The stationery piece is from 1871 and the stamped cover from 1876.(The letters are still inside, that is how I know).
My question(s). Is this Numeral four a postmark from Ney York or from Perrysburgh. And what is the correct description? Fancy cancel, numeral cancel, cork cancel? Or some other description?
Thank you for your help.
