Valued as a cut cancel, but the cuts are only visible from the back of the stamp. Lovely example otherwise with well placed handstamp cancel. Cancel date is less than a month after the company was incorporated; the company was scandal-ridden and eventually sued by the company and forced to dissolve.

If you have any information or comments about this cancel or stamp, please email me.
