    South Hanson, Massachusetts, "Locomotive," full strike ties 1883 2c Red brown (210) to piece with "South Hanson Mass. May 14" cds alongside, some staining and stamp a few short perfs at top, still Extremely Fine and incredibly rare example of this wonderful and intricate cancel with its matching date stamp (Cole Pi-67)rnThe best reference work on this remarkable cancel remains Donald Barany's article, "The South Hanson Locomotive Cancel," in Chronicle 198 (May 2003). In this article, Barany identifies 19 strikes of this cancel, including one complete cover (3c War Department entire) and a 3c War Department cut square. Those two items, with this piece, are the only three complete strikes which also include the circular datestamp of South Hanson, and give a range of use from at least April 1 to June 1, 1885. The only other items which could be considered a complete strike are two overlapping stamps, and a recently-discovered pair with a somewhat indistinct strike. Alongside the complete cover and cut square, last sold in 2018 and 2010 respectively), this is the finest example of this famous cancel one can own.
