Hand cancellation from Norway
I started looking through my postcards for cancellations I could add here:
- Hand and machine
- oval hand
Czech Republic machine
Germany Schiffspost (cancelled on the ferry from Helgoland)
Finland (2 different machines)
France (2 different machines)
France (Martinique) machine
Lithuania hand black
I have some more, but need to look through them first…
Summary from postmark wikipedia - Japanese
[European language roller postmark - 欧文ローラー印］
Compared to the European round postmark, there are few post office that are deployed, and many collection and delivery post office are not deployed.
Mail items that are thick or may be damaged when cancellation, such as non-standard-sized parcels, parcels, and agricultural seedlings, and cannot be cancellation with ordinary round European postmark.
And, It’s used to cancellation a large number of stamps at once.
So I think it’s a hand.

I hope you understand my poor English.
Perfectly understandable English !!!
THANK YOU for the information !!!
Interesting recent arrivals: a Yellowstone National Park postmark
and an envelope from Jordan with no postmark at all
Now I looked through the rest of my postcards:
Netherlands inkjet and Switzerland hand (received that one as poste restante in Switzerland)
two different machines
hand blue ink
hand and machine
two different machines
Flag postmark year 1913 (from a thread about surprise vintage postcards)
Postmarkt from Netherlands, seems it can be used instead of stamps
Canadian cancelation from the town of Berwick
And Holiday greetings from the USA
and postmark from Great Britain, probably commemorative, but I haven’t received such before
here is some information to get some special valentines postmarks.
I don’t believe there’s been one from Liechtenstein posted here yet, but here’s one I got today from Vaduz:
Another card came in today from Lithuania, although this cancellation is not the clearest:
It’s merely by coincidence that both cards used Olympic stamps. What are the odds!
Now this is the hand cancellation
It seems that someone just used a marker pen. I’ve never seen anything like that before.
The Armenian postmark is one of my most favorite among ordinary ones. It represents a 24 hour dial and shows not only the date when the stamp was cancelled but the exact time!
I received this cancellation from Algeria:
(I needed to - digitally - cut a bit out, so the text is not readable)
More Chinese incoming mail postmarks! The post office responsible for the delivery to my home has changed the postmark again - with several old postmarks reinstated.
Here comes the fourth version In the first picture, you can see the handstamped incoming mail postmark is turning red. As I know, according to the regulations of China Post, all handstamped postmarks (either incoming mail postmarks or cancellations) should be in black and all machine postmarks should be in red. Someone told me that the local postal administration has a new rule of colors of postmarks. Quite confused…
“Toudi 投递” postmarks are in use again, but only No. 4, No. 5, and No. 6. I have been receiving mails every day but never seen No. 1 - 3 “Toudi 投递” postmarks appearing again.
What I’d like to feature in the last picture is the tiny postmark saying “如东路投递部 邮筒1” (Rudong Rd Delivery Department, Mailbox 1). This tiny postmark indicates that the postcard is cleared from the first mailbox on Rudong Road (Qingdao City). In China, each city has designed a postmark to indicate that a mail piece is cleared from a mailbox. These “tiny postmarks” are not unified in format.
This one is another hand postmark from Moldova, on the postcard MD-63972.
Quite different from the previous one in this thread.
