This has caught a few member's eyes but I have no idea what the full cancel might say, if it's a USPS or private cancel, or what it's promoting.

Thoughts?

Thanks, Dave.

100th anniversary of the birth of Teddy Roosevelt. Pretty late usage on the stamp.(1930-1958) Not sure what the "RESPONSIBLY' was refering to. Maybe hunting or maybe responsible forestation/conservation, something along those lines.

Anyone have an image of the complete cancel?

I found publications indicating that a Presidential proclamation declared 1957-1958 a "centennial year" of celebration of TR, with the theme, "Responsible Citizenship." Thus, most likely the cancel said RESPONSIBLE CITIZENSHIP. The following is a PDF with one example article. It is a searchable PDF (search for Roosevelt).

My guess would be:


THEODORE ROOSEVELT
1858 CENTENNIAL YEAR OF
RESPONSIBLE CITIZENSHIP
