This item wasn’t cheap, but I was quite happy to get it.
The Walker & Taylor 10-line cancel is one of the more sought-after revenue cancels. I have several examples on R13c (2-cent Proprietary). It routinely sells for $100-150. I paid almost double the high end for this one, but IMO it’s not your normal example:
- The Walker & Taylor 10-line is considerably less common on 1-cent denominations than on 2-cent.
- The 1870 dated version of the cancel is much scarcer than the 1866 dated version. I have been hunting for an example for quite some time. By way of comparison, Eric has this cancel on a 2-cent Proprietary that he has priced at $275.
- This is the first multiple of any kind I have ever seen bearing a Walker & Taylor cancel.
