Received 15 or so packs of mounts, but still no 82mm that I need for U.S. vertical commemorative blocks of 4. It's been on backorder for weeks and weeks.

it's not the philatelic content, it was the packing that was creative and inspirational...3 t-shirts!

Today I got this pretty postcard from the Netherlands Indies (Dutch East Indies) from 1937.

The girls are Tari Janger dancers of Bali, Indonesia.

Most of the dance forms of Bali have deep influence of Indian mythology.

Thanks for the feedback. I thought it was a worthwhile purchase. I got it for only US $3.98 including shipping and tax, and it's a Real Photo Postcard, too.

Today I received a small lot of Danish stamps from Denmark through the stampstogo website. It took about 14 days from the time I ordered to receive this lot. It was an excellent transaction but I'm confused about the cover that the stamps were mailed in. There are no stamps on the envelope or postal meters or any other indication that postage was paid other than a handwritten code in the upper right-hand corner:
VRVT
TEFP
90H7
Can anyone offer and explanation?
Thank you.

Found the answer to my question about the Denmark cover without stamps or evidence of postage paid.

Evidently you can text your post office and they'll send you a code to use instead of stamps.

That's different.

That does not make sense: Codes must be used within seven days of purchase and only on letters being posted to other addresses within Denmark.

Thanks for bringing that to my attention Peter. I missed that line in the article. I really don't know how this cover went through the mail stream. It definitely came from Denmark the sender's address was on the reverse and came to me in the US with my address on the front. Only other markings were those penciled in codes up in the corner and the priority sticker.

It looks like you can use codes for international letters also.

Bought a small cover from eBay---received it Saturday 6/5/21, it took 46 days to get from California to Tennessee. Where's the Pony Express when you need it?

Arrived on saturday, box lot to sort thru, packets and envelopes of material, along with a WW album. Album was a bit sparse but looks to have a few good items.

I actually got a $129 refund cheque from an auction house in Quebec. They agreed that what I received wasn't exactly described properly or worth anything for that matter. Also received from another sender some Newfoundland blocks. Better than average day in other words.
