The Fullerton List; Railroad 35, The Chicago & North-Western Railway

This post is part of a continuing series on Richard Fullerton's 1952 Catalog of Railroad Company, Street Railway & Express Company Printed Cancellations on the 1898 U. S. Revenues.

Examples of the cancels, when available, are posted.

RR035:  The Chicago & North-Western Railway

Update, October 29, 2010:  Just added two more types.  The more I deal with the C&NW listing the more frustrated I become.  There needs to be an update to this list, including some reorganization.  I think the major classifications for the C&NW cancels should be yearr dates, then types by dates.  It takes too much work otherwise to classify these things.

Type 1: One line of plain type caps and lower case letters 25mm long; caps 3 1/4 mm high. Line of 16 dashes 22mm long is 6 1/4mm below. Without date. Period after the “N”.

Type 2: Two lines of plain type caps and lower case letters. Caps 3 1/4mm high. RR initials 25mm long; line of 16 dashes 22mm long is 6 1/4mm below. Dates are 2 1/4mm high; 189 is 4.5mm long, 1899 is 6mm long. RR initials and date are 8mm apart. Figure 1 of date is serifed. Period after the “N.”
