Dec 26 not on stamp, Ill post the front with a question
This is the Dec 26 cover, with a Fancy large E cancel. My question is when did they first use the E and how long?
Just got this one in the mail
Added one new stamp to the collection, and added two upgrades to dates that I already had.
The new addition is this US Scott 319 from 1903 for Feb 24th. Cancelled in Hartford, Connecticutt.
Next up is a replacement for a more modern stamp that I had for Dec 4th. It is a US Scott 26 from 1857 and was cancelled in Holland, Michigan.
The last one for today is another replacement for a modern stamp that I had for July 6th. This is a US Scott 619 from 1925 that was cancelled in Pacific Grove, California.
I prefer the older stamps over the more modern stamps so when I can, I'll be upgrading the modern stamps in this set.
I have more that I'll post tomorrow covering some dates that got on some Air Mail stamps. Till then, have a good one.
Received some Air Mail stamps that have filled in 4 dates for me. Here are 2 US Scott #C21's for Sept 4th & Dec 7th; a US Scott #C20 for Aug 17th cancelled at Wall St Station in New York City; and a US Scott #C25 for Apr 27th cancelled in Detroit, Michigan. This gives me a total of 102 dates completed, almost 1/3 of the way to completion.
Gunny...nice stamps and cancels.I like airmail stamps,find them much more interesting.
Concur. And, I think Gunny's moniker C11 is my favorite. A very interesting stamp with lotsa collecting possibilities.
Found a stamp for Dec 29th today. Meet Scott #C24 postmarked Smithville, Texas.
Added another Scott #11 that covers October 11th. Probably cancelled in New York City.
Gunny....any luck with Feb 29 Leap Year cancels ?
Nope, but then again, I've only been looking for generic dates and then seeing if I have them. Haven't been looking for specific dates.
Here i found in one of my books Feb 29 Logansport Ind. 1952. The only one i have lol
