    I had quite a few pinbacks; lordy knows what happened to them. My fav was a very large Goldwater with a clear bubble full of golden flakes in water. Haven't ever seen another like it tho others with that 'theme' are available. I do still have a large "I Like Ike."

    I bought a lot (23) of Oklahoma Philatelic Society souvenir sheets/labels from a member of the OKC metro stamp club. They gave my collecting of these items a big boost. Here's the 1940 items. The smaller ones appear to be pre-event labels while the larger black on gold is the souvenir sheet. There were three of the smaller labels issued in black on blue, pink, and yellow. I lack the black on yellow. The blue label is "on piece", maybe used on a cover at some point. I think I'll leave it as is rather than soak it off. The difference in size is from the cropping effect. The blue and pink are the same size and the gold S/S is actually the largest of the three.

    An item from the 1936 APS meeting for my Omaha Collection. I hope to supplement this one at the Omaha APS stamp show in August of this year. There is a souvenir sheet incorporating this design along with three other singles in different colors. I would like to get the souvenir sheet for sure. I have a couple of other Omaha cinderellas that I will post later. Out of time for today.

    Thanks. I guess it would be called a poster stamp. American Bank Note printed it, that accounts for much of its attractiveness. I have never seen the souvenir sheet.

    Thisr item, a pre-event advertising label is not philatelic in subject, but it reminded me of my Omaha days. Ark-Sar-Ben is Nebraska spelled backwards. Dating back to 1895, Ark-Sar-Ben as an organization played a major role in the city's economic and social life. The livestock and horse shows held in the arena and coliseum began in 1920's. There was also a horse racing track where I spent a few dollars while a student at the University of Omaha, and a social group called the Knights of Ark-Sar-Ben which held an annual ball and elected "royalty." While I believe the Knights are still active, the coliseum and arena and the race track are gone. Torn down to make way for expansion of what is now the University of Nebraska at Omaha and a multi-use site known as Ark-Sar-Ben Village which I hope to check out when I attend the APS show in Omaha later this year.

    I went out to Ark-Sar-Ben racetrack with a friend in college. We were sure we had a system for beating the horses and were anxious to make some quick money with it...We came back three days later short several hundred dollars but convinced our system just needed a little fine-tuning! I have an old A-S-B race program somewhere.

    Just getting over a very late bout with the flu, probably had the shot too early in the season...

    Good to see you back online. I thought maybe you had gone back to work! Online sources say the race track closed in 1995. Too much gambling competition from casinos and the like.

    Here is a newly created page for the cinderella album. An attractive set, in my opinion, of NYC scenes printed by the American Bank Note Company. I need to do more pages, but am slowed down by scanning, writing up the scans and posting. Posting stuff takes a lot of time. If I did less of it the content of my shoe box albums would be significantly reduced.

    I for one am cognizant of the time/effort you put into your posts <DON>. But I find them all very instructive and entertaining. Perhaps you could just start sleeping an hour a night less? :joyful:

    You and <Werner> are the life's blood of this forum for now. Hopefully I can contribute more soon.

    An hour less sleep per night? :eek: I'm already up by 4:30am every morning!

    Last Tuesday, I went to my first stamp club meeting since the late 1990s. Coincidentally, one of the collectors there was commenting on how much time it took to properly maintain his collection. He said "It is almost like having a job," My wife said the same thing to me a couple of weeks ago after I turned down her invitation to go to an open house with her. Collecting does keep me occupied, but I like it and am grateful that I have the time, resources, space, and understanding wife that allows me to continue collecting with only minimal guilt. :shame:

    Another addition to my Oklahoma Philatelic Society souvenir sheet collection. This one from the 15th annual convention held at Tulsa in 1947. This sheet reproduces Sc. 565, the 14 cents, blue flat plate printing with the portrait of Hollow Horn Bear, a Brule Sioux Indian. The Brule Sioux were/are not in Oklahoma, but Tulsa was in what was formerly Indian Territory and the 14c stamp was a stamp that prominently displayed an Indian personality, so it got the nod to enhance the souvenir sheet..

    Here is a recent acquisition. In 1940, the U.S. Post Office Department did not issue a stamp commemorating the world's first postage stamp, the Penny Black. As a result, many philatelic societies commemorated the event on souvenir sheets. This is one of those from the Bison Philatelic Society in Buffalo, NY. 1940 was a big year philatelically in Buffalo as the APS also held its annual convention there.

    Another recent acquisition, this one commemorating Columbus Day, 1942. It has WW-II patriotic overtones with the wording, torch, and V for victory symbolism on the lower left and bottom of the image. Ludwig Staehle, a popular cachet designer of the 1930s and 1940s did the central image. This is also a Frederick Dietz, a New York City stamp dealer, cinderella, printed by the National Poster Stamp Society of Chicago.

    As an aside, Native American groups have been protesting the celebration of Columbus Day as a holiday for several years now, claiming Christopher Columbus was responsible for European exploitation of indigenous populations in the Americans. The Oklahoma legislature, just last month, April 2019, passed a bill that the governor signed establishing Native American Day in the state on the same date as Columbus Day.

    Columbus Day remains a state, federal, and banking holiday, but most businesses and schools no longer close for it.

    I bought the s/s for its attractive color and because it is one of the Dietz/National Poster Stamp Society series.

    A page of four souvenir labels engraved and printed by the American Bank Note Company for the 1926 International Philatelic Exhibition in New York City. Nice art deco design, in my opinion.
