Hi all! I am going through a mixed envelope of 26's and 26a's and found this 26 with this star cancel. I have been looking for it online, but have not found anything yet. Does anyone have any info about this particular cancel? I thank you in advance.

Yes I have. I saw a couple that were kind of close, but not close enough.

A friend of mine sent me this pic. It is as close as I have seen to it, but yet again, not an exact match. He said from page 99, "US Cancellations 1845-1869" Skinner & Eno.

I'm not an expert on cancels, but the color and impression do not look like an 1850s cork or boxwood cancel to me. The splotchy ink on the central star looks to me like a rubber cancel from the 1880s or later.

yours looks like a cleaner impression of ST-E 35, note the larger dash to the right of the point at 1 o'clock. There are 7 dashes in that range to the next point as has ST-E 35.

If you have an idea that a cancel has been added or altered, try holding it under a "black" or ultra-violet light source. Uneven inks will show quite plainly. Pen-shaped Diamond lights should also work
