I have been asked by several members to show pages from my Fancy Cancel Collection.

Back in November I accidentally wiped my flash drive clean with all my scans of my collection, books I downloaded, exhibits I downloaded, reference material, etc. I have a "computer guy" I deal with and he was able to retrieve my files I deleted. They were all renamed with numerals so I had to open each one and rename them which I was thankful they were not completely lost. It took three long days to rename and organize them. A few were just jumbled scans but I was able to figure out what page it was. I will be re-scanning them as I post them to this site.
Don't be like me, BACK UP YOUR FILES!

Most of the pages I will be showing haven't been added to in a few years. Most of the scans I already posted in the "Recent Acquisitions" threads will not be found on these pages.

This first page are Bottle Stopper cancels. Since many of our post offices in the 19th century were also in stores it appears the postmasters used what was handy at the time, Bottle Stoppers. You can see the numeral in the cancel referring to bottle neck size. It appears that size "3" was the most common.

Here is a page from my one frame exhibit I put together about 20 years ago.

Hey Vince,
Why don't you send the images to me to add the Stamp Smarter database so they get archived for the future? Or you could send me the pages you have done and I can make an online exhibit for you which would also then be archived for the future?

Don: The display on Stamp Smarter is gorgeous.

Vince: Such great cancels. So much care and work were obviously put into collecting, identifying, and displaying them.

Thank you both.

re: Pages from Fancy Cancel Collection

If I had known about fancy (and geometric) cancels 30 or 40 years ago, I might have collected them, but I didn't inherit Dad's accumulation of philatelic stuff until nearly 20 years ago. That's when I was introduced to them — by the thousands. Dad found them (literally!) and never did anything with them. I'm fascinated by them and am trying to identify as many as I can and share the information, but I got started too late and and it's a bit overwhelming. D'Oh

Here is a page of "OK" cancels from my collection.

Here is a close up of a double transfer on the 3rd stamp 4th row with blue OK cancel. The doubling is easy to view in the letters of One Cent and the numeral 1. I like using my microscope for these close up images, they come out very sharp.
