LUIMNEAC(H)
14.XII.70

This is a modern, 31mm, circular date stamp for Luimneach (English=Limerick), Ireland. With a population of 94,192 Limerick is the fourth most populous city on the island of Ireland.

From Wikipedia, "The city dates from 812 which is the earliest probable settlement...Antiquity's mapmaker, Ptolemy, produced in 150 the earliest map of Ireland, showing a place called 'Regia' at the same site as King's Island (historically, the city's center)."

Here are two different circular date stamps of Knjazevac, Serbia on 1890's Alexander I issues. On the left is the type most frequently seen on this Alexander I issue of 1890, and on the right is a more modern "barred" type used on the pair of Alexander I, 1894 stamps.

KLARIJA
2.IV.42

This is a postmark from the WWII German occupation of Serbia. Klarija is a village (pop. 1300) in the eastern municipality of Nova Crnja, which juts into Romania. Today, Klarija is known as Radojevo.

This was the only cancel used for Klarija during the German occupation. Source: Hans Zydek Poststempel im Besetzten Serbien 1941-44.

The negative "x's" on each side of the central panels of the cancels are clearly visible.

Hermagor is a town of about 7,000 in Carinthia and now a part of the municipality of Hermagor-Pressegger See.
Incidentally, Franz von Suppe (he had no connection with Hermagor) was the composer of dozens of light operettas and is probably best remembered now for his overtures to the Light Cavalry and the Poet and Peasant operettas

Here are three different "Koenigliche Wuerttembergische Bahn-Post"/ Imperial Wurttemberg Rail Post (t.p.o.) cancels.

The "Z" number after the date is the train number. In this case, they are 22, 9, and 86.

TRAVELLING P.O.
8 MR 04
DUNEDIN - CHRISTCHURCH

New Zealand TPO postmark. The stamps are from a "dot plate", meaning a dot appears in the margin between stamps, halfway up the stamps. The dot just touches the midway perf holes on the two stamps.

Thanks funcitypapa.

Here are some old Thurn & Taxis style cancels which continued in used through the Prussian and early German empire periods. They are Cassell, Bingen, Eisfeld and Diez. Each one has hollow circles on left and right sides of cancels.

Here are three different Thurn & Taxis style cancels on early German Empire stamps. They are Koestritz, Oberlaunstein, and Worms. The Koestritz and Oberlaunstein cancels lack year dates, and the Worms year date is 78, rather than the four-digit year date it would have if used in the 1850's.

The Worms cancel is 36.5 mm in diameter...too large for a full strike to appear on this stamp, even if it were perfectly centered. The second pic shows the stamp placed over a Thurn & Taxis period illustration of the marking.

From my collection, the nose of the caribou seems to reach out of this Whitbourne, Newfoundland cancellation triumphantly.

Here are three different cancellation types of private courier Hansa of Breslau, Germany. Breslau is now Wroclaw, Poland.

The stamps are Michel #9, the 2 1/2 pfennig issue of 1894. The Michel Spezial-Katalog Der Privatpostmarken lists nine different colors for the stamp. A notation states that there were at least 24 printings of the stamp up to 1900.
