I like how the topic of Rattlesnake Island keeps coming back up through the years on SCF.

Below are some different posts I found interesting and relating to this.

I will add these entries for the history of the island, and an update to the eventual closing of the island post.

I like this card for a few reasons, the obvious being the neat Rattlesnake Island Local post usage on card.

More so as it fits into my Postal Card collection.

It fits into a very narrow rate period reduction (3 months) from the 8 rate (Mar.2,1974), reduced to 7 (Sep.14, 1975, then up to 9 (Dec.31, 1975)

From the American Philatelist. An article by Wayne Youngblood.

Some may argue that it is only a philatelic inspired oddity, but I look at this one as a correct rate in period valid commercial business usage.

Best to all,

Hello Pat, and anyone interested in Rattlesnake Island Local Post,
A relaunch of the RILP is in the works. The First Day of Issue for the
triangle stamps is Nov. 10, 2022. The mail will once again be flown to
the original airfield on State RD. in Port Clinton such was done from 1966-1989. Griffing Flying Service no longer operates out of Sandusky as they did during the 2005-2010 RILP issues. Rattlesnake Island still does
not have mail service from the USPS, despite the other 3 neighboring Bass Islands do. So the topic of RILP should be coming up even more.
