I'm thinking this is a slogan cancel that may be too new for my Luff catalog. Either that or it's not a slogan cancel at all.

Any ideas ??

Not a great example, but the first I could easily locate ...
"Great Lakes Receiving Ship"

To add, this was for mail handled by the Navy's Great Lakes training station. In use between 1918 and 1921 according to Langford's Flag Cancel Encyclopedia, with a similar flag cancel with the inscription "U.S. RECEIVING SHIP" being used around the the same time.

I sure hope many, perhaps most, of our new members see this brief thread.
A great illustration of the human capital in the community here!
