Pic1-second row center stamp and Pic 3-last stamp. are both 'box cancels' that were handstamped, usually on parcels or shipping tags. The first one is indistinct and the one in pic 3 is most probably from one of these 3 post offices in Pennsylvania (Blue Ball, Blue Bell or Blue Ridge).

Pic 2-second row first stamp is Scott # 1050 with what looks like an Emmitsburg, MD CDS

Pic4-first stamp. Is a roller cancel (on Scott # 820 also predominately applied to parcels where large numbers of stamps needed to be cancelled.

Pic 6-first stamp is Sc# 825 with an indistinct cancellation.

14 cent blue has cancel from Rhinelander Wis.......(4th scan, 14 cent Pierce presidential) but its not a precancel.
5th scan there are two 1 cent green Washington presidentials that if you put them end to end spell out "Church Street(?) Annex(?)" chances are they came off the same cover, because they line up perfectly.

Very first stamp has a cancel reading REGISTERED, used as a killer on (duh) registered mail. Used by a number of cities/towns, it's not rare but not all that commonly used either.

3rd pic, top middle stamp is probably a cancel salvaged from the double oval type showing up elsewhere in these images. The outer ring and lettering was likely damaged or worn, then cut away.

Nice variety of towns.
