Wow, some great souvenir sheets in this thread! I missed this thread when it first started.

I remember the first time I saw a souvenir sheet. My eyes got as big as the sheet! Since then, I've always had a weak spot for them, as well as an empty spot in my wallet.

I've got lots of souvenir sheets, but only partially organized. You all have inspired me to not only re-combine them all into one collection, but to scan them all as well (at least as long as my scanner and power cord stay together!). I've given myself a goal of getting them all scanned by the end of next year. I'll be posting them in this thread as I scan them, along with some info for each souvenir sheet.

Meanwhile, I hope others will continue to post more pics and keep this thread alive!

Thanks for reminding me. While looking through the 'big box' of US stamps from my club recently, I came across two or three postally used cutouts from the 1966 US Sixth International Philatelic Exhibit souvenir sheet.



Too bad the ones on the right aren't canceled.

1985 Olympic winners souvenir sheet from the Dominican Republic. The stupid scanner software cropped it to close and I'm to lazy to re-scan it.

Admit it. You were cutting open a USPS priority mail envelope to re-use, and forgot you had stored the souvenir sheet inside.

The first S/S I ever bought -- already posted by Nells250 and jamesw, but I'm going to post it again anyway!

A very inexpensive stamp, it remains my favorite S/S. As a young kid, I figured it was going to be the closest I could get to a real US #1 and #2.


US #948
Date of Issue: 19May1947 in New York City
Quantity Issued: 10,299,600
Michel #557 Block 9
SG #MS 945
2011 Scott catalog value = 55

Some tidbits:

Also known as the CIPEX S/S, because it was issued at the Centenary International Philatelic EXhibition (19-25May1947) honoring the 100th anniversary of the first national US postage stamp. The exhibition was held at Grand Central Palace, New York City.

It shows an approximate image reproduction of the first 2 stamps, but not in original color.

Benjamin Franklin on the 5 stamp, was the 1st Postmaster General of the US.

George Washington on the 10 stamp, was the 1st President of the US.

Robert E. Hannegan was the 52nd Postmaster General of the US. Interestingly, while Postmaster he also served as the Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He got the DNC post courtesy a nomination by Harry Truman, who had declined the post. Hannegan repaid the favor by being instrumental in replacing the previous Vice-President (Henry Wallace) with Truman at the 1944 convention. Of course, Truman became President when Roosevelt died in office in 1945. Historian James Chace noted Hannegan would remark he wanted the following on his tombstone: "Here lies the man who stopped Henry Wallace from becoming President of the United States."

The CIPEX S/S was the first US bicolor S/S -- but oddly enough, there are no plate numbers to be found on the S/S. The plate numbers were trimmed off during packaging. All previous US S/S's had the plate number on the S/S or in the selvage. Plate numbers would not re-appear on US S/S's until 30 years later in the selvage of the CAPEX '78 issue.

As a bicolor S/S, you can expect some degree of mis-registration between the two colors (blue, brown orange). I once bought a brick of these (remember, over 10 million were printed, so lots of bricks still around), and fished out the noticeable mis-registrations.

Here is brown orange shifted high (10 stamp is higher than 5 stamp):


Here is brown orange shifted low (10 stamp is lower than 5 stamp):


Low catalog value stamp, but lots of pleasure!

You're right of course. Being new here, I'm still learning. No misteaks ever again .

And I wouldn't want my friends here to miss out on the beautiful portrait in the margin of a polar bear in a snow storm with it's eye closed.

Can't get away with anything here. You guys know all the tricks.

So enjoy this Isle of Man SS from 1980. Nothing wrong with it I hope?

OK, from my 1st S/S purchase to my most recent S/S purchase. From Paraguay, a country that has issued more S/S's than many countries have issued total stamps! It's a little beat up, but it is genuine postally used -- with the scars to show for it! Issued near the end of a high-denomination era, it apparently stayed stored away for 27 years. Not quite correct time period of use, but with inflation creeping back up over the years, apparently the postal service didn't notice the use of an older high-denomination S/S!


Scott Paraguay #C364
Michel #2517 Block 214
2011 Scott catalog value = $3 for MNH, no price for used

Issued on 30Dec1973 to commemorate President Alfredo Stroessner's visit to Europe and Morocco. The flags shown are of Paraguay and 6 places he visited: Spain, Germany, Italy, Vatican City, France, and Morocco. This was in the middle of his 45 year rule. He came to power through a coup in 1954, and ousted by a coup in 1989. He was exiled to Brazil and died there 17 years later.

Of course there's something wrong with it -- I don't think I have that one! Thanks for posting the pic!

It came to me in a box lot and it's not something I collect. Once I can start posting in the sell/trade forums here, it'll probably end up there.
