Hi Phil,

Here the three major varieties of the Century of Progress slogan cancel:

With 1933 year date:

With last 3 in 1933 excised (used in 1934):

With 1934 year date:

The 193 and 1934 dates are less common than the 1933 year. Collecting all varieties going by the machine number incorporated in the dial could make a nice specialized collection. I have a dozen or so. Always put them aside when I came across one, but never bought any of these specifically.

Same cover as Philb's but with correct stamp.

I have many more, but too much time required to scan each.
