Someone wrote Buffalo punch cancel on the back of this stamp. I can't find any information on that. Does anyone have any story on that? Is this one of them? Thanks.

Normally referred to as a "Patent Cancellation". Norona's Cyclopedia (Quarterman edition) has a whole section on the various patent cancels and some information can be found in the Chronicle.

Here are some examples of "patent cancellations."

In addition to the area designed to put ink on the stamp, they had a center area that stuck out a bit to punch into the stamp.
