Unusual mixed handstamp and manuscript cancel, with the latter in a lovely contrasting magenta ink. At first glance, this looks like an R5b, but you can see a row of horizontal perfs running through the top of the document, so it is actually a misperforated R5c.

If you have any information or comments about this cancel or stamp, please email me.
