Here are some new additions to my collection. Sometimes there seems to be a drought and other times like now a lot of material starts to show up.
These first group I picked up at The APS Philatelic Center in Bellefonte when I was there last week.

This next group I found on ebay from different dealers.

This next group came from a dealer I have been dealing with for the last 20 years. The four, five cent Taylor stamps on the bottom row are from New Orleans, LA.

The stamp on the bottom right are the postmaster's initials, H.N. (Harry Nichols), I am H N.

Really nice collection. Do you care about the condition of the stamp when you collect cancels (small tears or thins).

Cool cancels Vince! It's just a shame they were soaked off the covers. Imagine how cool those would be

Keith,
The more rare or difficult the cancel is to find the less I am am concerned about stamp condition. All the auction houses that sell fancy cancels make sure you understand they are selling the cancel and not the stamp. A well centered stamp with a well centered cancel is nice to find but it don't happen that way too often. As Tom pointed out it would be nice to see the covers these stamps came from. I try to obtain stamps on cover or at least on piece.
