Hello everyone;
I just purchased a new 179 Taylor stamp I would like to share with everyone.
At first glance it looks like its mint.
But with closer observation it has marks on it like it was used.
The very fine purple mark makes me believe its a fine cancellation marks or maybe a ink transfer from another image?
What do you think with these pics ,I tried to show where the marks were,done in a pink high lighted.
Its interesting, it looks like a awkward circle or oval.

Scan that stamp at the highest resolution you can and submit through retroReveal.

http://retroreveal.org/

Quality of the posted pic is too poor to analyze, but it certainly looks to have a canx.

Good idea Staterevs. Didn't get a chance to read this sooner or I'd have tried it myself. Give it a go Dan or send me the scan and I'll do it. Can be revealing!

I think this is the coolest thing using Retrorevel.
Seeing a stamps secrets that was impossible to see other wise.
Thanks a lot for the help everyone.
I think this symbol is a Templar cross of sorts kinda cool.

I agree it is a cancel but when I ran your original image through Retro and got this http://retroreveal.org/images/ss/51234.
When I ran your second image (one you marked up with pink, I got this http://retroreveal.org/images/ss/51235

How did you arrive at the cross cancel you show above?

It must be because it was a image with a 6 megapixel picture .
Its funny the other pic's they showed in the segments didn't show much of a cross only a few did that were recognizable cross's.
You would think more cross's would be seen.
Thank you Don for your reply .

It sure looks like a different stamp,
It most likely is caused from the negative affect it cancels out the the color. Which creates colors not showing up.Like the edges of the perforation.
Its funny how only a negative look creates the cancel marks showing up .
You would think purple being a dark color could be seen both ways negative or positive, that's interesting.
Thank you Partime and Stallzer for your input.
Dan

At first I thought it was the same stamp but then I had doubts about the stamp and now I think that it is a different stamp that looks like the same stamp if you look at it the right or wrong way depending how you look at the stamp.
