I have a few of these FB11 Bill Stamps, and most if not all were cancelled with "Marker Monkey" cancels.

This cancel is from London Ontario, May.16.1865.
BUT what is the "B.B.N.A" [or "N" on last letter.]
It was printed by Canadian Bank Note Company 1864

I lightened up the colour to see the cancel.
Any help appreciated.

Robert

Probably the mark of the Bank of British North America (BBNA), founded in 1836, merged with Bank of Montreal in 1918.

Unclear whether that mark actually refers to London Ontario (where they did not have an office from what I can find), or rather refers to the fact that they were chartered in London, England.

Based on the previous thread with a clearer strike, that would be "LONDON CW" for Canada West, which was in use in 1865.

Judging from the stamp here:

and this BNAPS article:

It seems like some cancels bore the name of the cancellor. I wonder if this was just the bank doing the same thing for their revenue cancellations?

Hi Robert - there is no issue with rehashing old posts. 5 years is skads of time. Besides, the content has been pretty slow in the forum for the past while! Chris

Just to clarify, my link was not a jab at Robert; the other post just had info already in it which was relevant to the discussion.
