The questionable future of the "STAMP CANCELLED" designation

When I bought a P-15 note off a dealer a while back it just had "Exceptional Paper Quality," no "Stamp Cancelled" designation.

So I was surprised when I submitted my 12 traveller's checks and all 12 got the label.

The new P-17 I just got, which has a cert# indicating it was submitted after mine were submitted and graded, does not have the designation.

So, I'm really not sure what this means... I'm not sure if they just forgot to include it on this one (which I think was one of 4 or 5 the seller submitted with this group) or if they aren't sure if they're going to keep using it or not, or what.

But this introduces the idea that my 12 are the only ones that have this label / comment and they may stay that way. hm I wonder if that would make them more or less valuable? :roflmao::insane::roflmao:

The joys of trying to build registry sets over time and with notes you bought and which were graded by others over a longer span of time.

Side note, but you can really see that Zimbabwe bird watermark (or at least the outline of it) when you look on the back of these things, at least in my scans.

Did all twelve of the notes you submitted have that printing on the back? I don't remember that being on all twelve, not that it should be the difference between being labeled canceled or not, but it's just a difference between the three notes posted here that might mean something. It's hard to tell a lot of the time if there is just an omission/mechanical error or if something changed in the way notes are designated. In the end I usually come up with a theory and assume I'm correct until I prove myself wrong.lol

I think 7 of 12 have the printing on the back but that hardly seems like it would matter for STAMP Cancelled. lol
