Collecting full cancels stamps is very popular in many countries. Often, even cheap stamps with such stamps are sought after and have nice prices. Is it similar with stamps in the USA?

These kinds of cancels are certainly popular with me; I can't speak for anyone else.

They are not as easy to find as one would think. Especially to get dates withing normal use:




but a page of them looks pretty.

These types of stamps have their own acronym - SOTN - Socked On The Nose.

People like me who collect stamps on which one can ID the place of cancel think the SOTN's you are asking about are the Holy Grails of our collections, but there are few of us and many U.S. SOTN's so I've not noticed any big jumps in value for them if they are on common stamps.

I collect them and buy them whenever I see them offered. However, I rarely pay more than 50 cents for a bullseye.
