Here's a red-brown "dot-in-S" with manuscript cancel.

I saw this thread started yesterday while I was at work (don't tell the boss that I was surfing the net at work!!!) and have been chomping at the bit to see how it would develop and to participate a bit myself. Looking over my #1's, it is apparent that I am obsessed with cancels, so here it goes....

Here is a #1 with Orange Red cancel and a #2 with Red Orange cancel - at least that is how they were described when I got them:






I used to go to school in Troy New York, and I started collecting that area many years ago. I've got a bunch of those, but this is my only scan that is under 200K. They are all in the bank, so I cannot re-scan them, and my software changes the colors when I try to edit their size. GRRRR! Troy NY:





Green cancel on cover:

Very impressive stamps from everyone. I'm quite jealous.

Scott 1



Scott 1a



Scott 1b (Thought this was a 1. PF thought otherwise.)



Scott 2 (Diagonal crease lower left. Still like it)



Now I just need the funds for some on cover. Sigh.

Really like the posts so far.

Nice group bankruptcollector! (Love the name.) The margins on your #2 are fantastic.

Hobsun, I love the Troy & New York Steamboat cancel!!! One on cover would be my Holy Grail. I still don't have one off cover, either. I have a bunch of 1851's on and off cover, but no 1847's... yet.

Thanks, Mooter. The moniker aptly describes my current state, especially when there are so many choice items up for auction during the next two weeks.

Your #1 cover with the green cancel is impressive.

Thanks, widglo and bankruptcollector. I got the orange-red/red-orange stamps separately. I wasn't trying to make a 'pair', but they just ended up being a beautiful set of bookends. I just liked the way the coloration popped.

Another area I enjoy is 1847 issue covers in combination with carrier or local post stamps. This is a G.A. Mills' Despatch local stamp (109L1). This is from the Gross III sale last year.

New York & Philadelphia Railroad marking (the CDS not the straight-line) on cover with Bloods 15L8 local. The name was cut-out of the address panel, but a scarce combination with only 4 covers recorded

Another Philadelphia Railroad, this time a #2 with Bloods 15L13. The 1847s in combination with 15L13 are pretty common, with almost 100 covers recorded, but only 14 covers are franked with a #2.

I see a fair number of Phila RR straightlines, but not so many of the CDS. Is the CDS that much scarcer, or, since its a CDS, maybe it just doesn't stand out as much?
