Philb, thanks for the non paid commercial! I just found their website a little over a week ago and have been considering making a purchase from them. You've helped make up my mind.

Tom, sorry about your foot. But glad you enjoyed
the covers... and the pie!

Have been working with some covers for eBay, so
hope to serve up another course sometime soon!

Thanks T360...the Saar claimed by both France and Germany for the iron and coal..i often wonder if we had stayed out of World War 1 and let Europe settle their own affairs..according the readings I did both sides were pretty much stalemated and exhausted after 3 years and then we came in as the deciding factor..

Wow guys Very nice Covers.

Sorry about your foot Tom. I steped on a peice of glass once but it was self inflicted. I was wrapping xmas presents one year awhile back and after one too many glasses of wine I stepped on the wine glass and almost severed one of my toes off.

Here's a cover from Colombia, c. 1959, that's set up to look like a business letterhead.

This is a registered cover from Poland to Germany franked with a set of Poland's 1985 firetrucks. A bidder from Germany won it last night and it will be going back there.

Here is another German cover, Berlin, 1935, franked with a 3pf Hindenburg
Memorial Issue. Von Hindenburg was Germany's president and about 88 when
he died, so by contrast, maybe McCain isn't all that old. Or even Reagan.

You wouldn't suppose that famed flaming zeppelin was named after him?

This 1948 cover from Hamburg, Germany features a machine slogan pictorial

Father of the modern zoo, Hagenbeck traded in wild animals supplying many

Here's another pictorial slogan machine cancel, 1935, Heidelberg, Germany.
Translation is, more or less, Heidelberg calls: come [to Heidelberg].

This is actually a postal card from the Cape Of Good Hope. It was mailed
in 1889 from Cape Town, the largest city, to Kimberley, the second
largest town at the time. The world's richest diamond mine is located
at Kimberley. I guess that would be a pretty fancy cancel.
