OK.....so, I'm new to precancels and I have questions. From left to right. The first two stamps I have eliminated as precancels. Number 4, I have decided, is an efo with shifted alignment, but I am not 100% sure about #3. It is very faint and I'm not entirely sure its even a precancel...the ink looks faint and I think its reading "East ******"? Also the horizontal lines don't match the vertical ones shown in stamps 5-6. Thoughts?

Number 3 reads East St Louis.

With the exception of the 2nd stamp everyone is a precancel. The 30c Baltimore I believe is a Bureau as is the Dallas next to it. Rest of them all fall in the T&T variety.
go to pss.org and go to Catalog section and get yourself the Bureau and Town & Type Catalog's. They are chocked full of good info, also dont hesitate to look in the back of each for "other" good info about all kinds of things precancel related.
Happy collecting

For more precancel info go to precancels.com not pss.org.
