Can you read the date when this marriage took place?

It looks like either 10th or 18th...

10 Nov 1839 was a Sunday so the 18th would have been a Monday.
I think Sunday more likely to be the day.

Unclear, but looks more like the 18th to me ...which is what the Cambridgeshire FHS have it transcribed as (on FMP). I would expect they were working from the original registers (or at least images of them) so should be more reliable than a GRO copy.

Um. Difficult to see with half the numeral missing but I'd go for the 18th also. There seems just a bit of a jiggle on the left.

I'd apply a bit of logic - if the FHS have 18th as Antony indicates, then they'd be using a different copy, I think, so I'd be inclined to trust that. And I may be totally wrong, but my gut feeling is that Sunday is actually less likely as a marriage date. Priest has too many things to do. Or maybe that's just in my area.

In addition I expect the transcribers had access to marriages before and after (on this and adjacent pages) and that this would have helped clarify the date by where it is in the sequence of days.

My vote is definitely for 18 November 1839.

According to Free BMD's the marriage was in the December quarter of 1839. The church register may give a clue to the date if there are marriages before and after the 13th and 18th. Just a thought.
