I have just acquired a collection of precancel centered around Jefferson precancels I call the Jefferson collection,it has won silver,silver bronze and bronze awards at various shows including Springpex and Vapex,this collection was 14 years in the making by M B Manchester and is quite a comprehensive work so I'll only post a portion of the collection.
This is some of the 50 states








This section is Jefferson town names and related precancels.




So this is just an example of this amazing works I call the Jefferson Collection.

Regards to all

Harry

I'll tell you the story Butch but first I have to thanks Kim and yes it's an extensive collection so I couldn't show the complete works,Butch I won this off eBay with an N to Z collection of over 2000 precancels in an album,I've just finished adding my collection to it and that's not including the Jefferson collection.

Regards to all

Thank Mike,David and Dan yes it was a great find and the 14 year endeavor to compile such a works must have been satisfying on completion,I know I couldn't spend that long on one project so I give him his due's (Miles. B. Manchester) for being so diligent.
