re: Squared Circle Cancels

Hi all;

Cheryl might also be referring to British squared circle cancels, that have no straight lines, only circles.

Here is one:

They are just concentric circles that have the outermost circles cut away on the four sides to make
a square. They are kinda large, so you need an entire cover to show them nice like Roy's examples are.

@ Roy; - Thanks for showing those, I've never seen those Canadian ones either.

I think they are kinda cool....

Hi all

Here are a few British Squared Circle cancellations from my collection. A couple of the strikes are 'almost' proof-like. Happy
