Look at this cover..Cancelled 3 distinct times and the RED arrow shows the beginning of 4th cancel...Not rare, but not at all common.

Robert, I think the devil did it. See the three 9's turned upside down.

I could not resist! You post some fun stuff.

Looks like the postal clerk had a bit too much fun the night before, and his/her handeye coordination was suffering the next morning.

That's not a machine cancel?

I figured that the envelope, for whatever reason, got stuck, and the 'next' envelope kept slipping in behind it.

Cheers,

Yes, it is a machine cancel.
The cancel is rolled-on as the envelope moves past the circular canceling head.
The only way to do this is to feed the envelope through the machine multiple times.

Perhaps the postal worker thought he/she was paid by the number of passes through the machine...or, maybe it was a slow day.

It appears to be a triple cancel X 2. 6 in total. Oh wait, on both sides? Is that even possible if it was turned upside down?

Jim, now I see 16 rings or partials in total and not 12. Missed that. Never mind Darth Vader. This cover had death by canceller.
