2-cent orange Bank Check used illegally as postage on a cover going from New Albany to Fort Wayne, Indiana. It was canceled, caught, correct postage affixed, and then canceled again. The lower-left circular handstamp as well as the bullseye tying the revenue stamp both run underneath the postage stamp, with the right circular handstamp subsequently struck after the postage stamp was affixed. Reduced at right.
