MAIGH NUAD
10.10.14

Maigh Nuad (English = Maynooth) is a town of 14,585 inhabitants. It is located in the north of County Kildare, in the northeast of the country.

Wikipedia, "Maynooth comes from the Irish Maigh Nuadhat, meaning "plain of Nuadha."...Nuadha was one of the gods of the ancient Irish, corresponding to Nudd of Wales and Nodens of ancient Britain and Gaul." Nuadha was the Celtic god of war.

From godchecker.com, "He...owns a magic Sword of Unbeatableness which nearly slices all enemies into two and renders the wielder invincible."

The "14283" code under the value signifies the date of purchase as the year 2014, day 283. The 283rd day was October 10, 2014, the same day the stamp was postmarked.

Second pic shows an 1886 print of Maynooth castle (Wikipedia).

VLASOTINCI
24.VI.07

This is a Serbian King Peter I stamp postmarked Vlasotinci. The town name seems to have changed a little over the past 100 years. During Yugoslavian times, it was Vlastinci, and now it appears to be Vlasotince.

From Wikipedia, "Vlasotince is a town and municipality located in the Jablanica District of southern Serbia. As of 2011, the municipality has 29,669 inhabitants, while the town itself has a population of 15,830 inhabitants...After the Turks were forced out of Serbia, locals started growing wine grapes as a kind of complementary business to their building activities. They made Vlastonice the number one wine region in the former Yugoslavia, and furthermore the biggest wine exporter in the Balkans."

This stamp, canceled at Victoria on the Maltese island of Gozo, is what I cite as my "Holy Grail" of a sock-on-the-nose cancel when I am communicating with prospective traders to seek stamps for my "Gazetteer Collection" of worldwide places-of-cancel, of which I have more than 71,000 at the moment.
Victoria, known to Maltese as Rabat, is the capital city of Gozo island and had a population of 6,901 in 2014. It contains many historic sites and relics.
I look up every place-of-cancel I have and so vicariously "visit" the town that I will likely not actually get to in my lifetime. Great fun for me.
