Scott Number: R36a Collection Reference No. for Communications: 2534

Denomination/Type: 10c Inland Exchange, blue, imperforate

Because this is a counterfeit/forgery, the catalog value does not apply. However, it may have value as a reference item.

Cancel Method: Handstamped - Boxed

Cancel Color: Black

Cancel Date: December 14, 1864

Cancel or Company Type: Railroad

Company: New York Central Railroad

Cancel type N-11AX. The jaggedness of the cuts would indicate that this is a trimmed-down R36b intended to fool people as an R36a. There appear to be residual perforations at bottom.
