Going through my SQ stamps and came across this stamp issued 1873-1874.
The cancel looks like Sept.15.18 {?} 3
Any ideas..??

I agree with 1893.

The Mitchell, Ont squared circle is only recorded from 1893 to 1899, so the missing digit has to be 9. It was proofed 12 Sept 1893 and the earliest recorded use is 14 Sept 1893, so you have a second day of use.

Second day of use is good enough for me..Thanks

Was hoping it was a cancel mistake like my Scott 168 which was canceled 10 years before issue date.
Issue date Nov.5.1930
Cancel date July.12.1920


Was hoping on a second error..Oh well I tried..Would have been a nice keeper....haha
