Eight R27c singles used on an 1867 promissory note, at least 5 of which exhibit legitimate 'freak' perfs. Unlike the fabricated freak perfs you frequently see with the perforations at bizarre angles, these exhibit the extra perfs in a manner consistent with having fed the sheet of stamps through the perforator a second time: the extra perfs parallel to the initial perfs.

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