Inverted Day


A letter with Scott No. 8 send on 11th November 1858 from St.Petersburg. The number for day of the date is inverted. Does anyone have still other examples? How often does such cancellations occur? Does anyone have a cancellation from 11th November with a normal standing "11"?

There are lots of errors in cancellations with dates (or parts of dates) inverted. Of
equal interest is the relatively early use of Scott #8. Any use in 1858 is a bit scarce, with
the earliest about 20 September. Thus, to have both an inverted date AND an early use
is quite good. Can you scan and post it?

Nothing is showing. Perhaps the image is too large?
