Postal Stationery DP4(Michel)

Berlin 48 in postmark on stamp and in "negative" postmark

Today I received two #6 glassine storage boxes ordered earlier this week from Brooklyn Gallery. As I've been sorting into envelopes by country, I place the envelopes in alpha order in the boxes. I filled two and started on a third over the holidays, so I wanted to get more to have plenty of expansion room.

Today I received a lot I won on eBay Sunday night. It was listed as an "interesting WW collection in Harris Statesman album." From the image, though, it was clearly not a Harris album.

In the description the seller did describe it as a Scott International. Upon opening it I could not believe how thick the binder was. Turns out the pages cover part 4 and what seems to be an older version of part 5 with pages to 1965.

All in all a pleasant surprise, especially as both seem to include the U.S. pages. I have yet to be so lucky with a couple part 2 collections I've purchased.

A 1952 last day of exhibit cover



A Suriname cover from 1929 with 1927 overprint stamps.



And finally I found it yesterday, a photograph related to a post on page 30 of this thread. The post was about a advertising postmark to help children in Austria in and around 1920(famine).

The picture shows on the left Anna Urban from Vienna who stayed the better part of 1920 with the van Gerwen family in Acht Netherlands. On the right is my maternal grandmother Petronella(Nel)van Gerwen, who was happy to have a sister for a while(she only had brothers)

An eBay lot posted yesterday. Unfortunately, it was one I'd posted, which the post office had thoughtfully delivered to the sender, rather than the addressee. Oh dear.
