Cancel for May 8: American Express Company


Just a reminder that the search continues for new examples of printed cancels on the documentary 1898 stamps.  Our series on these cancels can be found here.  The original organized attempt to list these cancels was orchestrated by Richard Fullerton in the early 1950s, and his list included express company cancels like the American Express example above.  The list largely comprised the cancels of railroads, which utilized printed cancels on the documentaries more than other businesses.

Please review the posts that follow the link above, and if after doing so you find that you may have unique material to contribute to this effort, contact us at
