    Another sales book extract. This one canceled in Antwerp with an upside down year in the cancel dial. Not valuable, but I couldn't pass it up.

    A couple of bullseyes mounted in my France collection. Sc. 992 & 993 from the 1961 Heroes of the Resistance issue.

    A first-day cancel on a block of four, Argentina, Sc. 569. Sc. 569 is the unwatermarked stamp of this design. It was reissued in 1949 with watermark and renumbered Sc. 570.

    A second Argentinian bullseye pulled from a sales circuit book. This one a machine cancel with the date slugs in upside down. It is the same design as above, but is watermarked so it is Sc. 570.

    Thanks, Hochstrasse. I can't pass up cancels like these when I see them. Most are dirt cheap too. Also, did you notice the occasion for issuing that stamp? Exhuming and relocating the bodies of San Martin's parents -- where else but in Latin American would that generate a commemorative stamp!

    I missed that part Don, I'm a little rusty on my Spanish. Gracias por señalar eso.

    A slogan cancel out of New Zealand on what looks like a pair from a booklet pane, Sc 184a issued 1926, with adverting tabs still attached.

    The advertising tabs really enhance the pair Don, sort of like side frames.

    Yes, and also a clever advertising technique. If the mailer doesn't remove them the advertiser gets even wider coverage. If the mailer does remove them, chances are he/she will at least take a cursory look at them and the advertiser's message has reached a potential buyer.

    A block of four I picked up for .25c at a recent stamp club meeting. I don't have a new enough catalog to provide the Sc. numbers for this issue.

    "The origin of the word bullseye is uncertain, it may simply be derived from its similarity to the shape of a bull's eye. Another origin story is that English longbow yeomen practiced their archery skills on bull skulls, aiming at the eye socket, or bull's eye." quora.com
