Several lots of stamps I won on eBay, mostly older ones, since that what I'm interested in… now, to read up on those Washington's, and Franklins. LOL

Today I got this wonderful Esperanto postcard, mailed from Wallachisch Meseritsch in Moravia/Austria on 23 October 1902. It's now my oldest piece of Esperanto postal history, though I do have earlier postcards written in Bolak and Volapük.

I feel uncomfortable posting in this section. Feel like it's bragging, but I have to share this one. Heavy thin in upper RH, but when it's only the 2nd copy known, there's no waiting for a better one to come along.





The first #314 with Schermack control marks was recorded in 2013 on a political postcard from 1910. This copy, with the stamp control pattern and identical cancel was used by the Tax Payers League. They were an anti-prohibition political lobbyist operating from Detroit.

kcaramat, very nice! We know there were more of these at one point, but you are correct. Waiting for another one may take another 100 years!

A bonus (to me, at least), the mailing envelope from an eBay purchase:

Cancel reads: DIPLOMATIC MAIL at top, bottom reads DPO AE 09828. Date is largely not there, with 2021 showing. The security envelope throws off the cancel color, which is red.

France may be off the menu, but I can console myself with a glass of Calva -

I received two space covers today: one of the space-flown STS-8 covers and a Colorano silk cachet cover depicting members of NASA Astronaut Group 8.

Got a shipment of stamps and not only did the post office not cancel anything on the cover, they plastered a bar-code sticker across all of them.

Thank you to the USPS.

Are they not easily peeled, and can be repositioned?
