From 1864 to 1866 all postoffices used the 'FRANCO' in a box cancel.

(Franco cancels, reduced sizes)

In 1866 the halfround franco cancel was introduced with a city name, secondary post offices still used the 'FRANCO' in a box cancel (upto about 1890).

(Halfround Franco cancels, reduced sizes)

About 1872 fully round cancels were introduced. Due to the fact that these cancels could easily be removed from the stamps, and the stamps reused, numeral cancels with dots were introduced in 1874.
