Europe/Other : Austria: Meaning of numbers in early cancels

I've got some turn of the Century Austria with cancels. The cancels appear to be fractions such as a 7 over a 9 or a 3 over a 6. Can anyone tell me which number is the month and with is the date?

I can tell the year number - just confused about the month/year.

Oh yes, the cancels are late 1800's early 1900's - almost forgot we've had another turn of the century.

Thanks,

Dakota

Like that?
The normal way of date notation in Europe is day-month-year, so it is most logical to assume it is 7 September.
I have seen cancels on stamps from the 1863 series with the doubleheaded eagle that read 26 over 4 or 14 over 1. That pretty much rules out any other option.

Jan-Simon:

Thanks for replying so quickly. Unfortunately none of the cancels in my possession have humbers higher than 10 so it was impossible for me to determine.
