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.

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
