Wow! I don't think I've ever seen that many cancels on an envelope before. They sure tried hard to find the addressee. Wonder if any postal authority would do that today?

As I familiarise myself with the forum I came across this thread, which reminded me of a cover on eBay some time ago. Good thing I saved the images!
