Machine cancels are described in the form Machine maker- Cancel Type. The machine makers are abbreviated with a three-letter abbreviation. To help identify machines, the county abbreviation is capitalized. If you don't understand any of the machine maker abbreviations, or if you'd like to find out the standard work that describes the maker's cancel types, please call.

Markings are graded on the following scale:

vf very fine - Clear and without defect    
f fine - Easily readable
