This might be a good place to post LQ and SQ cancels...I hope some experts chime in and give information and links to categorize cancels.

Here are a few of hundreds of SQ cancels I have in books.

Robert




I have so many of them, I came across 2 that might have been on a cover/envelope/parcel together..Looks like it eh..???




And some more....

Hi Robert - that is a great grouping of fancies! I have to agree that the two stamps are mates. Chris

Very nice Robert! Do you have LaCelle's book on fancy cancels? You should.
Your Prescott cancel is #728 on page 72. States "Town name type, imitates 'big city' types, see numbers 258 and 608. D&S and Jarrett date of '80 unconfirmed. Ink builds up at top and bottom,posibly briefly used with a reversed 'R'. Jarrett 364." Used from Nov 1882 to Aug 1888.
I'm sure you'd find some others in there as well.

And I agree, those two were separated at birth!

Robert - are you accumulating and displaying the fancies in an ad-hoc manner or will you categorize them? In the latest images, it seems that the clerk who cancelled the lower right stamp was having a very bad day! Chris
