Cancelation dots on stamp

Do these dots form a letter referencing a month or state? Is it in fact a cancelation? Thanks

    A "perfin".

    They can be company names or other letters, etc.

    Companies did this to their stamps to discourage theft.

    Perfins are an area that never seems to get as much attention as it should. The Parcel Post stamp you show looks very fresh and well centered.

    All glory is fleeting.
