R188 $10 Gray Documentary
I've never been able to figure out why Scott labels these stamps as gray in color. Sepia maybe. And like many guys, I can't tell most colors apart. But I am sure this series of dollar documentaries is not gray.
New York stock brokers Halsted and Hodges were located at 7 Wall Street. The firm was established by partners Amory Glazier Hodges and Richard Halsted. This stamp almost looks as if it was cancelled by a dot matrix printer. Could this be a typed cancel and the dot pattern be an artificat of the inking ribbon, or could it be a handstamp with the dot pattern as an artifact of the ink pad background or the handstamp background?
