A past thread: http://goscf.com/t/5808
And here's a great guide: https://precancels.com/wordpress/wp...dium-res.pdf
Is this where you could not identify it?

I bought the PSS town and type catalog (7th edition) but I can't find one like mine listed for Westfield, Mass.

The best way I've found to to this is to go to the city listing. Then, write down the possible types. Next, return to the tables at the front of the volume. Compare your stamp with the types you see until you get a match.

If there are any local listing (these begin with "L"), they are located at the end of the state's city listings.

Good luck with the hunt!

Many of these look similar but differ a bit.
