Hello Fellows, is there anything special about this cancellation? I guess I don't recognize it. It came in a lot of early German occupation stamps. Thanks! Wolf-==-

The cancel is Tien-Tsin from one of the German offices in China,but the cancel looks forged to me.

Thanks for the evaluation perf12. Any chance of someone putting up a genuine cancel for comparison? Much appreciated!

stampwolf, the wrong stamp was used for this fake cancel. The bottom inscription should read "REICHSPOST", not "DEUTSCHES REICH".

I see what looks like a second cancel under the heavier one. Did someone apply a fake cancel over a genuine one or could the lighter one be a different fake?

Running off on a related tangent ...
I am looking at the single "a" just after the word "POST" ...
Bookbndrbob's "a" is closer to the rim than the "a" in the tracing.
Comments?

Example from a 1908 Tientsin postmark on a postcard from my own collection.

IMO whatever the original posting is supposed to be, it isn't.

The forged cancel is not noted in the Friedemann book, so may date from later than the mid-1960s. Of course, we know forgers are still at it.

Thanks all for the comments. What ever, the stamp will go in my reference collection of fakes, forgeries and reproductions. Cheers! Wolf-==-
