G. H. Mumm Printed Cancels: Joyce Type 3, 1 Cent 1902s

1902 was the last year for the 1898 tax act.  Taxes on sparkling wines like champagne ended in mid 1902.  G. H. Mumm, according to Joyce, only printed dates up to March of 1902.  My guess would be that they had enough supply of the stamps on bottles ready to ship by the end of March and had no need to cancel any more stamps.

Below are examples of February and March cancels.  I am looking for the January cancel.
