Gentlemen, before I just threw these up and ask a ton of questions I used every resource you have provided me to do it myself. Lets see how I did.

Stamp on the left I believe is 1932 rotary press perf 11 x 10.5 with a precancel scott 720

Stamp on right was a real challenge, but I think this is a 1918 type iv offset perf 11 with a cancellation scott 530

Let me know how I did. Thanks

Very close.

Yes a 720, although a wavy line machine cancel rather than a precancel.

Yes either a 529 or 530 depending on the "PO" details, which I can't quite distinguish from the image, but definitely an offset-printed stamp and one of these two.

Thank You John. That PO detail is kind of difficult to determine. Under magnification it appears that they are joined rather than a line as described by stampsmarter. Regardless, at least I was in the ballpark. Awesome. Thanks again

This a AA rated precancel type, meaning it was the only one ever found. AA's are listed in the catalog at 1000 US$ Some sell for more, some less. This one is the only type found from Ontario Iowa so it would be higher.
