Hi tedmast,

This looks to me to be three strikes of a hand stamp with something like:

PASSED FREE

US CUSTOMS

NEW YORK

Thanks for your input Nigelc - guessed it was something like that, pity the cancel was so messed up.

Technically, this is not intended as a cancel. The best way to describe it is as an auxiliary marking.

Cheers.
