Hi. Any chance you'd be interested in doing a proposal for "location canceled" to go along with the date canceled property? Thanks :) --Adamant1 (talk) 22:34, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

Can you give an concrete example?Smiley.toerist (talk) 23:38, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
Like with File:1898 circa Zander & Labisch, Berlin, AK Grußkarte Ewige Lampe, Hannover, Inhaber Julius Bockhold, Adressseite.jpg how it gives Hannover for the location inside the circular cancel above the date. --Adamant1 (talk) 05:01, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
It is unclear. By 'date canceled' there is always a location implicit. In this example you have two dates (send date / from post office posted) and the (arrived at) at the post office of the destination. Both are cancel dates. Maybe it is usefull to allow for two values for 'canceled property'. I would not needlesly complicate things by adding a new property. After all it nearly always only used for dating purposes of the postcard. High precision is not needed.Smiley.toerist (talk) 13:53, 27 January 2021 (UTC)
