I recently found a interesting cancel which I have photos of. I was hoping someone in this forum might point me in the right direction to find out more about it. the cancel has been engraved in the die backwards so it reads backwards. It is from Market Harborough Leicestershire England. It was canceled on the back of the envelope. any info on this cancel would be helpful. Thank You
