Hey all.
I have some great cancels I'd like to share with you all, however I have no idea about them, I'd love a bit of assistance with identifying them.
Here we go!




And


Cheers

First one is a 'Wheel of Fortune' which was commercially produced and used by a number of post offices.

The Rochester (NY) Philatelic Society has a FREE download of a publication about Wheels of Fortune. Anybody have any WOFs from New York or Vermont? I'm always looking for examples.

A slight bit off topic- but this "wheel of fortune" reminds me of the Confrderation bridge linking New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island in Canada, just straightened out a bit. Uncanny resemblance. Proof that the more things change the more they stay the same.

The third one reminds one a bit of the French cross of Lorraine. Interesting. Laurie, the fourth one reminds one of the Sydney opera house in Australia.

Someone told me the fifth cancel is a K.K.K. cancel?
I've never heard of such a thing!
Would it be unusual? If it is....

The fourth stamp I agree with No1, at first glance the first thing to pop was Sydney. Ha, I love it. Okay, here is my take - partial leaf fancy, but for the life of me short of a favor from a friend, I can't fathom the partial. Here is a great example taken from Stamp Auction Network Michael Rogers Online, a Division of Daniel F. Kelleher Auctions

Second one looks like a crude negative cross. All in all wonderful cancels.

I think the fourth example looks rather like a (partial) type of pinwheel or circle of V's (Alexander & Simpson Type L-14).

I recently came across this stamp with a similar look. (Scott 69)
