Dr. Hellrigl and Dr. Shrestha both list a variety of the Gorkha Classic Negative Postmark with a mechanical date.  The Hellrigl number is N80 and the Shrestha number is G52.  Does anyone have an example of this postmark in their collection or ever actually seen this item?  I have never seen an example and would like to verify that it actually exists.  I have a couple of covers from Gorkha from this period that show a manuscript date in a fine hand and ink color that could almost be taken for a mechanical date and wonder if perhaps a similar example has been mistaken for a true mechanical.  Please see the picture below.
