It kind of looks like a script "H". I do not know if there any significance to that (could just be the postal clerk's initial), but maybe someone else will know.

Hey Bobby, Speaking of cancels, I remember that scan you posted of the columbian with the cancel zeroing right in on the broken hat variety. One of the coolest stamps I've ever seen.

In my opinion, that is a lazy cancel by an uncaring postal clerk....Thumbs Down

Yes, it is a roller cancellation. Imagine a pizza cutter except the cutter is about 3-4 inch wide and has words on the surface.
