His covers were advertised and sold weekly in Linn's until his 9/11 cachet cover. That cover was artistic/appalling and his ad never appeared again in Linn's. I have never been able to find a picture of that cover again.


He actually created at least seven** different 9/11 (Scott B2) FDC designs. I do not know the number produced for each design except for one which was a production run of 4. That is the "You Never Walk Alone" card. I own one of this one but my image will not display correctly and cuts the right side off a bit but it is below anyway. Of the five designs, this one has the most disturbing (to some), but entirely factual, images from September 11, 2001.

As to a date of death, the Jan/Feb 2020 First Days, lists him as "late" thus it appears 2019 is a better guess for his year of death, not 2020 as mentioned above. I too have found no obituary.

If you do a Google IMAGE search on "HIDEAKI NAKANO 9-11 fdc" all five will be pictured.




I lost someone in my life that day, Jeremy Glick, but it was in a field in Pennsylvania.

**He also used the Scott B-2 on another design but that was for The Star Spangled Banner, not 9-11.

That is not the cover I saw in Linn's. It was hand drawn design of a grinning pilot crashing into the tower and most artistic/appalling. I still have never seen it again.

It was in Linn's very shortly after the event.

I must keep an eye out for that one.

I don't use it but perhaps something like that would show up on an Alibaba search.

As I remember the cover the oversized head, face and grin of the pilot flying into the tower was Japanese adding to the artistic/appalling nature of the theme.

So, was Nakano the last holdout of the Greater East Asian War?

Just a note:
Aztec sold (or listed) an unadorned "Sea Floor" for $49.95 on Hstamps.
I think both have there own topical appeal, and would be interesting if shown together.
