Gum is clean with only minor markings and a pencil written catagorization number. The perfin is missing pins, and is inverted.LA The postmark appears to be a duplex, with the circular date stamp on the left almost completly missing. The numeral cancel is contained within a square, with two bars above and below the office number.

Two barred square numeral duplex: 114 ++ unknown circular date stamp.
