I'm trying to see a Yokohama "chop" vs a Nagasaki "chop" cancel. Would like to find some pictures. Apparently Skinner did some work on this topic - something by him would be ideal. But anything that has images would be great. Thanks in advance.

These are called bota cancels. There are two major types, with some variation since the devices didn't last very long.

I left out the "on US stamps" part of the description. Fixed it. These cancels look like Xs maybe caligraphic Xs. But just X. Thanks.

I found an SCF thread with the answer.

It looks like the best paper is by Richard Frajola et al: UNITED STATES POST OFFICES IN CHINA AND JAPAN 1867 TO 1874

Great stuff. Thanks Richard Frajola(!) and thanks SCF/ google search.

For the record I feel quite good that the stamp I was evalutating it s legit YOK-Can2 example. Here is a retro reveal that highlights the cancel.
