"The Precancel Stamp Society Town and Type Catalog of the United States and Territories" (8th ed, 2018) lists 3 precancel types for Little Valley. This is type 633 with a value of 15 cents.

The stamp is Scott 632, which was a workhorse stamp until the Presidential issue came out in 1938, so I would not attach much significance to the envelope you found it in.

I have no idea what you mean by "pre towns post office". (But I now see the OP has edited his original post to read instead "used before the town had a post office", which is inconsistent with PO records, see my later post.)

The 1935 perfin cover has an Edwards, NY machine cancel applied by a machine from the Ielfield Postal Supply Co. These machines were installed in small offices as evidenced by the 1 cent rate for being mailed as a first class local letter at an office without carrier delivery, which is a sought-after rate use.

Whatever source you have found as "1941" appears to be in error.

Little Valley, Cattaraugus County, NY has been open since 1822 per the post office listings on Jim Forte's website.

Also, here is part of page 830 of the 1907 "U.S. Official Postal Guide" listing the offices for Cattaraugus County, with Little Valley as the county seat and 2 rural routes (the "ch" and the "2" portions of the listing)

This site maybe its wrong, I can change it if it is. Its seat was moved to make way for the Rail Road, They built there own Post office in 41.

Cities/towns get replacement buildings, which is what seems to be the confusion here.
