I am tying to find out more info on this cancel. It looks like it may be A.L. Scovill & Co. It has one weak right side up strike, and 2 inverted strikes. Just cant make out entire passage. This is the first one I have seen, is it common?

Someone posted this site just the other day. It was new to me, so I bookmarked it.

It might be a good first step in your mystery

Thanks KirkS, been using that site for some time, it doesn't show much more than what you see in above pic. I was hoping someone that was familiar with that canx would know it by heart. I didnt have much time to try to layer the individual strikes in photo editor, and get it down to one.

An aside-the photo was attributed to Boutrelle. Adrian Boutrelle was a wonderful philatelic photographer for many decades who was already in his 70's when he took this photo. A lovely man who I was fortunate to know for a few years at that time. Nice to see his name again, it brings back fond memories.

Dan, It is not a very clear strike, but I would be happy to email you a higher resolution picture for your site. Thanks to all for the great information.

Very interesting way of advertising. They did similar things like counter striking coins in the mid 1800's on large cents.

The extra strikes were not intentional here, the first examples were too light.
