This one on an adhesive label. The item is a dental appointment recall card with someone at the front desk having neglected to affix postage. A good thing it was returned. Imagine receiving one of these in the mail (which is depressing enough...who wants to go to the dentist?) and having to pay Postage Due to boot

Thanks guys. I was able to add the Dental label pointing finger above. I was not able to add the nice green pointing finger because the database is limited to US pointing fingers and this one is from Canada.

This one's a bit faint, but hopefully adequate. Verso is completely blank.

Here's a batch I found in a recently acquired postcard lot. International inbound and international.

Finally found a "Pointing hand" stamped on a drop letter from Eureka, Cal. A "Returned to Writer, Unclaimed" type. It's a big hand, even has a cuff.
It looks like the lodge didn't know Mr. McKenzie's address, so I also get a straight line Eureka, Cal auxiliary marking, probably added by the post office.

I was going to add this to the rest but the site appears to be down (the up-coming move?) at this time.

Yes, the move is progressing well but the databases are still frozen for now. But I have added you cover, thank you.

Tried to log in to the data base and enter this cover, but couldn't.
It's odd that Ferndale didn't use something other than a pencil for the directive, but they did follow the return time table.

Here is a postcard I found with a unique pointing hand marking to Galesburg, Illinois, USA. Note the Galesburg zip code 61401 is on the sleeve of the pointing hand. This postcard was not deliverable, and there was no return address. Don, this is from my collection, and anyone is free to use these images.

Here is a modern one that is very similar to several that were shown earlier. This one, marked in Atlanta, Ga., has no date and time indicated.

The Yugoslavian stamps (Mi # 1738) were issued on August 1, 1978.
