re: Forged cancel ? (Austria)

Note the text on the right: "Der Führer in Wien" and you will know that it must be a poorly formed 8. March 16th 1938 is just a few days after the Germans invaded Austria and called the annexation "Anschluss" or equally euphemistically "Heimkehr" (connection or homecoming) on March 12th. Hitler did a triumphal tour into Vienna on March 15th, which is probably what this cancel refers to.

re: Forged cancel ? (Austria)

I found another two examples the day after showing the same poorly formed "8" as Jansimon mentioned. The lower image isn't the best.
