parilla cancel

1871 "España", 10 centimos de escudo
1859 Queen Isabella II, 5 cuartos orange, with pen cancel.
1872 King Amadeo, 12 centimos de peseta

The cancellation on these Spanish-Philippines stamps is called "parilla" as it resembles a grill (used in cooking steaks).

Oval in shape

This cancellation was handstruck by the postal clerk.
