Single-circle Cancel Trifectas

 

The postal stationery of the 1880s provides a fertile source of 5c domestic postal cards bearing three different single circle cancels, nicely documenting the routes that provided efficient delivery of domestic mail in the Grand Duchy during this era.

Here are a few lovely examples (with more to be added):
