Very interesting double strike of the printed cancel, with one offset about 30 degrees. While examples of multiple cancel strikes are occasionally found on handstamp cancels, such an occurrence of a printed cancel is very unusual (entire sheets of stamps are run through a printing press rather than stamps being canceled individually).

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