1868 Issue / 50c Cancel Identification
« Last post by Colin Deane on April 12, 2019, 04:23:41 PM »
I have had this stamp in my "to be identified" pile for a long time and have not come up with anything.  It originally came from a MEPSI circuit book and was identified as Maravatio, which does not appear to be the case.

The district number is non-existant/unreadable.  I think I can see a faint 2, but not sure on that.  The identifiable letters in the circular cancel look to me like LU, but I have not come up with a cancel to match.  Anybody have any ideas on which district/town this might be?

Eagles / Re: QTO eagle used out-of-district?
« Last post by Mark Banchik on March 23, 2019, 06:52:56 PM »
Looks more like Salvatierra (unlisted cancel; previously discussed) to me.
Does not have 'negative' Acambaro cancel.
