Like that?
The normal way of date notation in Europe is daymonthyear, 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.

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.

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
