Crow.. My days not complete without a few "oops", usually when talking to my wife. I've gotten used to the taste of shoe leather.

Pair of Sc. 17s on a bit of cover. Posted elsewhere some time ago, but now collocating.

jleb1979, I love imperforate pairs. Yours is super nice, with good margins and a light cancel.

Pretty stamps on this page.

jleb - its quite possible that your #17 pair went to Britain, as the postage to get there was 24c, and it was very commonly paid by two 12c stamps.

Thanks, Classic Coins.
The light cancel is nice in some respects -- lets one see the splendid engraving better -- but I do wish I could read the town cancel better.
The best transform I can see in Retroreveal is below.

Looks like "_ _ _ERSBU[RG]" to me, but perhaps someone has seen this cancel before in a more complete state and might identify. Might it be Petersburg Va? Cotton producing area in correspondence with England?

And thanks again txstamp for the lead on the probable destination.

Hello All -- new member here and this is my first post -- mostly an attempt to learn how upload photos in SCF format. This is Sc # 10A -- position 60R1i -- with an NY APL (versus APR) cds -- not often seen on OB stamps as a bit of a late usage. Apologies in advance if the image upload is not to SCF standard.

Thanks TXSTAMP -- here is another "test photo upload" -- (this scan made at half the resolution of the last one). These are both position 45R2 -- Early state of the plate on the left -- and Late state of the plate on the right. This is the Chase listed recut variety #26 -- "vertical line ties upper left corner of ULDB to TFL". Again -- apologies in advance if the scan is not up to SCF standards.

One last test post to check scan settings -- as resolution had to be further reduced to meet the SCF 200 jpg maximum. This is a reconstructed block of 8 -- positions 87-100L8 -- (87-90L8 strip of 4 on top -- plus 2 pairs at bottom) -- all taken from a cover to Great Britain. Mixed blue/black FEB 27 Oberlin, OH cds cancels and red "19" credit handstamp (16c due to Britain for ocean carriage by British packet boat -- plus 3c inland postage in Britain). An unusual piece of "off cover" postal history. Color is typical 1856 brownish carmine.

The reconstructed block is a nice item. Plate 8 no less. Nice.

Too bad its off cover now, it would have been nice to see the full cover that it was on.

ioagoa, those are some really nice 3-cent imperforates.

I especially like the reconstructed plate 8 block. I look for plate 8 imperforates when building my collection, and I cherish the ones I have for their generally heavily cut frame lines and nicer colors.

jleb1979, As you suggested, Petersburg VA is a possible match for the CDS on your #17 pair:
