The cancel on this stamp is from Benton Harbor, Michigan the home of Alvin Filstrup. Filstrup was the purchasing manager for Covel Manufacturing and a well known stamp collector.

You may want to check the perforations as Filstrup created his own private perf stamps using a Rosback stroke perforator. The perforations would gauge 11.75. These were used on personal and company mailings. They are not considered fakes but a unique area of collecting.

They are listed in the Scott's Specialized Catalog in the vending and affixing machine perforation section, page 569 in the catalog I'm looking at.
