I am trying to get more information about this Shield Fancy Cancel on Scott 65. Any help would be appreciated. I have checked my Cancellation and Killers of the Banknote Era. This stamp is previous to that era.

Reminiscent of OB-SH-4 in U.S.Cancels 1890-1900-Salkind, but not quite a match. Interesting.

Reminiscent also of the very scarce 1872 Pittsburgh, Pa. "Large Shield" machine cancel:

In this condition probably a $1,000 cover.

This one sold for $800 at Siegel:

Pick these out of the dollar box if you can ...

Dan - Thanks, glad someone had the Skinner book. I need to get ahold of that someday.

Michael #s - I'm keeping my eyes open for that cancel.

Thanks,
Bob
