Hello to all, I am new here to the SCF and would like some expert opinions on what I believe to be the type 471 Woodsfield, OH. I know it is an extremely rare one to find and I am hoping that your responses are good. The other one in the pic is type 466 Caldwell, OH, I believe. I am in no way an expert in precancels, so your views and opinions are much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I do have some precans put aside until I get around to sort and organize them. I also don't have a whole lot of experience with them but I thought that generally the whole town name would show on the stamp (?). Maybe someone more familiar with these could set me straight on this.

If that is the case, could these be box cancels?

Thank you for the reply. I have precancels where the town was offset and did not show up entirely on the stamp...either way, I hope someone has a definite answer for this cancel. Perhaps it could be a rubber handstamp precancel?

they both look like non-precancel post cancels to me. Woodsfield is not the 471
