As a pig you may not know where your nose is?

However the first one of the two above surely cannot qualify as a true 'socked on the nose cancel,' being way off the the left.

Not wanting to be pedantic or mean.

Kindest regards

I've thought that 80% of the cancellation has struck on the South Vietnamese stamp, so it counts as a SOTN stamp.

I agree. If the date-stamp strike is not centered on the stamp it's not a bull's eye. Neither do you need a complete strike - even a well-centered incomplete strike will be acceptable.

I don't want to be a jerk, but if it's smeared and illegible, it defeats the purpose of the thread. I expect the town to legible to qualify as a bullseye here.

I assumed (unfortunately incorrectly) legibility would be a prerequisite and mandatory unless one was trying to obtain strikes of a worn or special purpose date-stamp. I note 'common sense' is not high on some collectors' lists.

Here's a German mailbag wax seal provisionally used as a canceller by the occupying Australian troops in German New Guinea ca. 1915-16:

NWPI Multiple 2 2010 08 22.jpg


A German court seal legitimately employed as a provisional canceller:
NWPI Multiple 1 2018 09 12 2400.jpg
If any of the above were 'socked on the nose' I'd be proud to show them here!

So these had slugs for the time/date? I'd have thought wheels that are easily rotated would have been the preferred mechanism to alter the time/date. Slugs are clumsy to handle at the best of times. Perhaps only the year was a slug since it didn't require changing as frequently.

No, they are all changeable slugs on this type of cancelling device.

There are two rotating dies in a canceller - one for the cachet (slogan), and one for the office date / time etc.

The date one looks like this:
exh_3.jpg
Date head of a cancelling device.


And all the slugs are inserted by hand. They look like this:


exh_2.jpg
Single and multi part slugs for cancelling device.


And if you had a sloppy operator, they are stored like this ....

exh_1.jpg
Pile of changeable slugs for cancelling device

It didn't help that both the date head, and the cachet head were inserted into the machine upside down as standard. The machine runs all letters through on their top edge (i.e. upside down), and the postmark is applied a uniform distance from the top and edge.

Inverted date slugs are a fairly routine occurrence in the UK.
(I often encounter a few, when sorting large boxes of kiloware).

Yesterday I bought a collection used Belgium 1950-2008 to complete my collection with round cancels from my country.

This particular stamp I really like. Date of cancel does not match period it should be, but still nice to have in my collection.

It is Belgium BE 951 from 1954. It was included in a set regarding the Beguinage in Bruges. The city where I live.

Our Lady of the Vineyard from around 1300. The Madonna holds a bunch of grapes, symbol of The Vineyard, in her hand. The statue survived the fire in the church in 1584. Maria van de Wijngaard also survived the iconoclasm, in which the Protestants beat all the statues in monasteries to pieces. She survived the subsequent Reformation. The French Revolution in which the people "everything of value is defenseless" shattered.

Added this NSW 1851 2d Imperf Superb Used, with scarce cancel into stock today for just $A55! (Stock 624BA)

1851 NO WATERMARK original print, from sharply engraved copper plate. Not to be confused with later similar design with watermark.

4 margins, good to massive on neat piece tied by superb, crisp, upright complete strike of first Barred Numeral “26” of Shoalhaven-Numba. Type 1b, Freeman rated “scarce”. The cancel strike and margins far better than the strike and stamp in Freeman book. :D

This does not look like a town cancel to me
Hi aerogi,

This is a Swedish TPO (travelling post office) postmark.

It reads PKXP. which is an abbreviation for Postkupéexpedition meaning Forwarding Mail Van, i.e. Travelling Post Office.

There are some examples on the useful TPO and Seapost Society website:
