You can aim for precision.








You can aim for clarity.





And occasionally, you approach both.





Then just to prove that Post Offices still do offer up great SON cancels.

You've got to admire German precision.

Lot of coincidences for me so far in this two page thread:

DJD: thanks for the Newfoundland stamp. I was born north of the US border but not in Canada.

Philb: While in the RCAF I also worked on the F104 Starfighter although ours was the CF104G built at the Canadair plant in Montreal under licence from Lougheed. I have described it as a missile with a pilot in the front. We have a Canadian stamp of the plane but my scan is not SON but mint. I'm not sure what she means but I think my wife thinks I'm "interesting" but she doesn't use that word.

Backroads: your beautiful Harriston, Ontario postmark brings back memories. After leaving Newfoundland my father was a brakeman on the CPR Orangeville - Teeswater railway run, which I have mentioned in another thread. Harriston was one of the stops and I still have familial connections there. I'm always looking for postmarks from the various towns and villages along that line.

This one was close...



(A pretty combination...and coincidentally January 15th, but I probably won't be available on the 15th to add it to the calendar thread.)

This one was closer...



This is my first used Wenden/Livonia without a pen cancel...



...didn't even know there were postmarks on Wenden.

I'm now looking closer at the stamp I posted above, is there a possibility its some sort of precancel?

it seems so perfect with both placements??

Edwin, it is a precancel.

[edit: Here is an older thread touching on these:

CD, the Wenden stamp is nice, rare with a postmark. For those interested, Wenden is now called Vidzeme Cesis and is in the region of Vidzeme, now part of Latvia.

More information: http://www.rossia.com/stamps/stampids/wenden.htm


Edit: corrected as above.

Wenden only cancelled it stamps with a pencancel. However, when used with Russian stamps, sometimes a Russian cancel was applied to the stamps.

Here's another group. Not perfect but they managed to trick the regional sorter in Vancouver into supplying a good cancellation. They make a pretty grouping.

That explains why I pretty much only see Wenden with a pen cancel. Thanks guys.
