Hello,

on this common stamp I found an uncommon cancel. Unfortunately I can't see a date, but from the gothic style it could be an early usage?

Is there a reference to this cancel? I did not find it, only some very similar with roman style.

Thank you.

Yes :). Are those cancels listed anywhere to know its year (more or less) and if it's uncommon as I wrote or - more likely - not?

Opinion:
Possibly uncommon, never seen customs Pmks listed anywhere.
All my examples (about 12) show violet ink, all smudged, indication high use of the cancellers, without ability to detect design of script.

Thank you again. Yes, I found many similar cancels in the internet that were smudged (but still it was clear that is was not a Gothic style). So this is a keeper for my (small) Canada section, as the cancel was applied with care, perhaps on an important document once.
