Puzzler, I like the dolphin leaping over the tugboat, too. I, also, like the way the panda's look like they're snuggling up to the one on the stamp, as well.

wt1, I wish I could help with that. It will stick with me, in the event I come across it, or someone does post a response. I've a few stumper's myself.

Pegasus, poets, Waterloo, Bellerophon... very nice, John.


EDIT: A Daphne Du Maurier stamp would make that last one mythologically epic.

The link to the listing of Washington DC slogans is interesting, although I am puzzled by the author's choice to show only the slogan portion and omit the dial portion of the postmark. The dials provide to bulk of the information as to the make and model of the machine - Americam, International, Universal, the machine number, etc. Ironic similarity that the MPOS omits the killers, which are often useful to differentiate railroad markings.

John:

Thanks for posting the Washington, DC "Academy of American Poets" slogan cancel which compares to the Boston one that I couldn't read. I have seen that slogan cancel before but would have never guessed it was the same slogan based on the blurred example I have.

Some might find it interesting to see the both examples together:



The only guess I can make is perhaps the Boston slogan was imprinted using a worn die, since the CDS is very legible and its only the slogan that is unreadable.

All parts of these dials and slogans are steel, so wear is extremely minimal. The dial is removed from the machine many times a day to change the time/day slugs and thus is frequently wiped off. The slogan piece remains in the machine for weeks or months at a time and accumulates ink, lint, dust, etc. A little cleaning can make quite a contrast.

Interesting. In fact, the Boston example appears as if it is a late use of the "Academy of American Poets" anyway. Although you can't judge Boston by the DC Slogan Cancel link posted earlier, in DC anyway, the slogan had a LKU of October 13, 1959. The Boston example above is dated October 30, 1959 -- more than two weeks later. I wonder what the LKU of the Boston example would have been?

Here are some US cancel/stamp combos from the 1960s

That Seward, Nebraska slogan cancel is quite interesting, particularly because the USPOD abbreviation for Nebraska changed to NB in 1963 and to NE in 1969, at the request of Canada, so as to not confuse it with New Brunswick:



Although countless millions of slogan cancels were undoubtedly made during that six (6) year period, one has to wonder just how many in-period examples were saved as a collectible.

Flipping through my small Nebraska accumulation looking for exceptions, here are two cancels from Universal Model K machines, both from 1993: Silver Creek still using the NB dial, and Hyannis using the pre-Zipcode dial with NEBR for the state.



And a 1992 roller cancel from Lawrence which was "fixed" by taking a file to the NB to make it into a NE.



And 3 more machines with the filed-off NB. The cut through the dial-rim exactly aligns with the end of the newly-made E.

Since this thread has been resurrected, I thought I'd share some. For now (maybe more later):



Has anyone ever seen an IPSA cancellation on cover that was not an FDC?

"More will live

giraffe gaffe of giant proportions in our collection of stamps





The following two, I cannot make out, nor find on the DC link kindly offered. I have spent a few hours looking, in a few different resources, but to no avail. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate some help in learning what they are.


I know the stamp is worthless, it's the slogan I'm interested in, in the off chance I see it again.





This one appears to have two box shaped cancels on it? One the left I can see '1502' in a box, in a box, and on the right I can make out 'Get your *something* in five (?) *something, something* with *something*'.
