I'm curious about the second cancel on your second #18.


Looks octagonal, probably a French transit marking.

This #26a is under-inked, and kind of bland-looking to me. But it's a pretty special stamp as 1857 three-centers go because the perforations don't touch any part of the design.

Gary, that's a nice stamp. Hard to find one clear on all sides.
Here's a 26A with recut right inner frame line. This one is on a decent cover.

Does anyone know if there is a standard reference for plating the 1857 perforated 3-cent stamps?

Finding multiples on an envelope is always nice. When I first saw this envelope for sale the rate didn't seem to match the address - US to Scotland 6c?



Curious I opened the listing and looked further and found a picture of the back of the envelope. Then it made more sense.

Does anyone know the size of their perforation holes? I got around 0.020" diameter for them.

That's a nice strip, Laurie. The top stamp is a major "curl in hair" variety. Also the notation on back is from Morris Fortgang, a very prominent philatelist of an earlier generation and APS Hall of Fame inductee.

laurie - your cover was expertized by Morris Fortgang.
He was a very accomplished student of the 1c stamp; especially the Ty V/Va varieties. If I recall, he passed away around 1959-60 or so.

caper - that's a neat usage. I always appreciate how people franked covers. Exhibitors would probably abhor that, as its kind of difficult to show off. I currently have a cover, where a strip was pasted on the front and folded around the back. A prior owner/exhibitor cut the back of the envelope and unfolded it so you can see the full strip. Turned covers also provide for challenges to show.
