$25 seems like a very full price especially in that the cover is yellow and both the cover and the stamps seem to be quite worn.

Thanks Kimo, but I am happy with it, and that's pretty much all that matters.

Stallzer, no. Not a drop rate, not 2 cancels.


Here is one of my covers that is on the PhilaMercury census. As someone once explained to me that the single stamp was cancelled by the carrier, or the fee from post office to door?

The hand stamp (barred oval) looks identical.

The Philamercury cover shows a carrier fee for service to the post office. The delivery fee from the post office could not be prepaid with stamps except on local letters.

The Philamercury cover from Philadelphia has a obliterator with a rim, the cover in the original post in this thread is from New York and has a rimless obliterator.

The NYC cover in question (and paperhistory's example) is clearly canceled with a duplex device. The 1 cent stamp was canceled at the NYC PO simultaneous with the 3 cent stamp.

While I agree the Philadelphia cover you link to does not appear to be canceled with a duplex device, it appears to be a normal killer cancel process in matching ink to the CDS cancels. Nor do I see any claim in the description that the carrier canceled the lower 1 cent stamp at a separate time in the handling. I think the explanation you received was incorrect.
