Hello, I'm having a heck of a time trying to make out the name on this cancel. I've tried numerous spellings and I just can't figure it out, Can anyone make it out?
Thanks
David

I tried to use your cropped picture but the resolution is too low.

Try scanning at a much higher resolution and using RetroReveal to see what it can do.
