    Somehow the guys of the Deutsche Post are quite clever:
    Large cancels for large stamps,smaller ones for definitives and very
    small ones for very small definitives.

    Not almost like c.t.o.,but they are for sure !
    In Germany c.t.o. is the normal condition for many stamps.
    In a simplified Michel cat.prices for DDR (GDR) are given for c.t.o.
    only.
    In Germany a used stamps must have a circular-date-cancel,
    regardless wether postally used or c.t.o.
    Postally used is better,but not by much.
    However stamps with waver- or advertising-cancellations
    are shunned and of little value only.
    - Michel states: prices for used stamps (listed in our catalogue) are
    for cancellations,what clearly show date and place. -
    This is of course more the case for modern stamps of the last 130 years,than for classical issues.For classical stamps "good"
    cancellations command "better" prices.

    [GALLERY=][/GALLERY]Hello everyone, I am not sure this counts as a "bullseye" but I thought it a neat cancel and thought I would share it and if anyone has any information on it I would love to hear it.

    Two bullseye cancels on German semi-postals, Sc. B670 and B673, from a 1988 set of four, these two illustrating gold and silver artifacts in the Schnutgen and Schmuck Museums respectively. The 50 + 25pf canceled at Rensburg and the 80 + 40pf at Gutersloh.

    This is an attractive set of stamps. I would like to have the other two values with bullseye cancels too.

    Thanks Don. here is another I found interesting from the WWII era. I hope it is viewed as I view it - as purely historical. No offense is intended.

    You mean this was a CTO during the war? Pardon my ignorance.

    Yes,indeed.During the war there was an ample supply of money,but
    not much goods or services on sale.So a lot of money was spent on
    stamps.
    Your bloc of 4 is cancelled with a commemorative First-Day-cancel
    for Hitler´s 53rd birthday anniversary.

    Looks like a favor cancel, not CTO. Regardless, a neatly applied cancel, worth collecting, in my opinion.

    A Scott #2 from Chile I believe. My Scott catalogs are in transit to me so I cannot confirm, but it was labeled as such in the lot that I recently purchased.
