Do you know what these are?


Here is a bunch of stamps with straightline cancel (overprint?). Some with "RJC" on the back. I have no idea what they are so I would really appreciate your opinions.

Did you hear back from Dr. Ceresa regarding the "RJC" marks on the back of these stamps?

Yes, Ray says they are his "ownership stamps" from early days of his collecting. He is not sure if they are in fact genuine issues.

Thanks! This is a good example of "signatures/signed" not representing expert marks, which many people presume they are. It was not unusual years ago and perhaps not even today to place a mark of ownership on items.

Ok, how about an image of his "Ownership" mark.

Or is it a secret?

No secret. Here are backs of "signed" stamps. Some other marks on them too...

Very interesting. I've not seen this mark before.

Thank you.
