I collect Honest Abe because he was a great president, I am from Springfield IL, and we are saturated in Lincoln lore in the Land of Lincoln.

I was born in the Land of Lincoln (Carmi, Illinois).



Used blocks of 19th century stamps are scarce but not widely collected.

Spedward,
That is a very nice stamp. The USPS reprinted that stamp on a souvineer sheet in May of 2006 for the International stamp expo Washington 2006. I was fortunate enough to go and even went to the First Day Ceremony and got all 3 stamps on Ceremony programs. I know mint the original runs around $65.00 but used is only $1.00. I will see if I have a duplicate for you.

Cool Covers. I wish Oklahoma had something like that for history, but then again we have all the Native History here. I bet people in other places get bored of the history there and find loads of interest in other areas of the U.S.

Thanks Cim! It is always good to expand your interests & knowledge. For local history, you could look into the Oklahoma Land Run. Ken Turmel has a print that features all the post office postmarks in the land run area,some of which were commemorative pictorial postmarks, on 1 print. check out the site www.postmarkart.com. to view it. It is quite impressive along with his other art pieces.
