No problem LaoPhil. Doing a duplicate posting is something many of us (including myself) have done...especially when a person is very busy.

Here is a piece of U.S. postal stationery (Sc #U635/23) that the American Philatelic Society (APS) sent out to its members on a fund-raising campaign 25 years ago. "Nonprofit" inscription on indica puts a postal value of 5c on the envelope.

I have always wondered, is this a first day cover just because the APS says it is? There is no USPS marking on the indica, nor elsewhere on the envelope.
