I saw a China Qing Dynasty Lungchow cancellation real on a postcard (around 1898), does anyone know that is it a fake cancellation or real?

These cancels are refered to as a'Dollar chop' or Dollar dater'.
They exist for many towns.I think yours is quiet genuine.A few other Lungchow examples next to yours. The 'G' in lungchow has a very distinctive shape.The lower portion in your cancel was not well applied;but that is not uncommon.

That frustrating thing in philately, someone assisted me with a "dollar dater"
some time ago, now I cannot find it.
Bad image naming.
