One of the most interesting cancels of the New Hebrides. The month can be in italic, the date block can be rotated in many angles or be completely absent. Sometimes only the month is absent. A common sign of genuineness is the gap or bent in curve in the outer ring between NLLES and HEBRIDES. Also the P of PT has a gap at the top and in later years there is a outside gap at the S of HEBRIDES.
