I need help. I am unsure about this cancel. For me it looks like a fake.

You are probably correct. The high value stamps were normally used for accounting or telegraphic use. In the past purists often insisted on postally used copies and the original single circle cancellation (which is almost certainly genuine in this case) was probably embellished to give the appearance of a postal camcellation.
