    What exactly is this? Do one of you Londoners know? I'm very curios to learn about this stuff. Thank you!
    Also, would we (the USA) have been a "possession" at that time?
    1660-1663?

    They were (and sometimes still are) issued with the permission of the Post Office by the club who organizers of the event to help raise funds

    It was a joke Jay lighten up my friend and yep that one counts and yes the US was a Colony in 1660 with a population of about 75 thousand

    I think it was a colony until about 1781, when cornwallis surrendered to washington in Yorktown, and there is a set of stamps foir that as well i believe.

    the sheet shows marks on envelopes used to carry post, and receive payment from the addressee once the letter was delievered which was the common way to send a letter up to 1840

    That's AWESOME!
    It sort of begs the question: Does anyone own any examples of them?​

    Right on! If my English stamp collection was a bit more -well just more I probably would too. Are they sort of like the equivalent of old stampless covers here of the day?

    Actually I think I may have sort of answered my own question a little bit- Those are much much earlier than ours so I think maybe they would actually fit well into an early US collection depending on the address. Like perhaps: Judge Corwin, Salem Mass.
