    A couple of Argentina blocks of four with first-day cancels I pulled out of a recent stamp sales circuit. The first is Sc. 1027, a stamp commemorating the Argentina Air Force, and honoring Alberto Mascias, aviation pioneer. The airplane is a Bleriot monoplane. The second block is Sc.1184, the high value in a set of five commemorating the sites of the 11th World Cup soccer championship. The stamp depicts a view of Buenos Aires. These blocks are headed for my Cancels on Stamps collection.

    A couple of first-day cancels out of an APS circuit sales book. The first from the Isle of Man, Sc. 134-136, a strip of three from the 1978 Europa gravestones issue; and the second a 2006 mini-sheet from Fiji with a pictorial first-day cancel. I don't have a catalog new enough to provide the Scott number for the Fiji issue.

    Don....thanks.
    This is part of a series of stamps first issued in 1914 and continued in many different issues until 1930.There are over 60 stamps,lots of varieties and colour shades.I have been trying to collect these.They are not particularly expensive either.Lots of overprints ,too
    Have also been concentrating on finding good cancellations.

    Due to our years in Paraguay I missed out on new issues of Germany
    from about 2006 till today.Slightly more than 1000 stamps !
    No way to get these by exchange or just from the mail,so I had to
    buy.Two collections let me become complete till 2016.
    However it is not easy to find stamps postally used.This,of course is
    and always was the case with semi-postals.But nowadays the only
    postally used one may find in numbers are self-adhesives.
    So stamps with First-Day-cancels,or with cancellations of the Philatelic
    Service are quite common in collections.
    If such First-Day-cancels are "lightly" drawn,I can tolerate them.
    But if they look like the following two,they are just a pest !

    I agree....similar to the situation with recent UK stamps.Often the only way to get a used stamp is of a FDC.Sellers also adverise stamps taken from FDC as fine used,something i tend to dislike and disagree with.

    Here's a Scott #J03 Postage Due stamp. It appears that I don't have as many bullseye cancels as I thought. J03 3C Bullseye Cancel.jpg
