These are seldom used here, and post office clerks are no much familiar with them - the result is the indicia uncancelled, the postmark is beside it. But it's clear :)

Just thought I'd add in a superb inbound cover from AMark in Canada, adding another of the wonderful Canadian Line Engraved wildlife stamps to my cover collection. This time we get the $8 Grizzly bear and it is magnificent.

This amazing postcard arrived this morning
20200728 card from Mark.jpg
with a pictorial postmark from Orion
20200728 card_rev.jpg
Orion is a hamlet in Alberta, Canada within the County of Forty Mile No. 8. The hamlet is located approximately 78 kilometres (48 mi) south of Medicine Hat along Highway 61.
As you can see in the postmark, there is the representation of the constellation of Orion on it. Therefore it is a great addition to my Outer Space collection.

Many thanks to AMark for this wonderful surprise.

Cheers,
Marco

Not sure what the tyre tracks across the pictorial cancellation are, but they aren't part of the official pictorial cancellation (see below). However, I like them as an artifact of the processing system.
