I have an envelope addressed to Scott Stamp and Coin Company and it has an orange and black 1920 2 cent Panama stamp without the Canal Zone overprint on it and the cancellation was from New Orleans, LA. Does anyone have information about Panama stamps without the Canal Zone overprint. I tried to research this and havent found anything.

Welcome. You should post a picture of the cover and stamp so we do not have to guess at what we are talking about

Look under Panama not the Canal Zone. Scott #187 or #198 depending on perfs.

It's curious, to me at least, that the cover was postmarked in New Orleans.

This is just a guess, but I believe that someone mailed a letter from Panama ( not the Canal Zone ) using a regular Panamanian stamp. It looks like the letter was sent to the US by boat and reached New Orleans where a post office clerk cancelled the letter and sent it on its way

The cover is faintly marked "Paquebot" to the left of "New York City"

Add: The stamp looks like Panama #198, with the orange sulfurized to a brown shade.

Alas, whatever building Scott was in in 1923 is long gone now.
