So after a little break due to covid stress, hurricane ida clean up and general stuff...., I've started back on some piles. In sorting some stamps laying around I came across the below and it got me wondering. 1940 date of issue and 1975 date of cancel. Seems like a long time to be laying around. Whats the longest span between issue and cancellation you have in your collection?

Quite easy to find most of the 3 cent commemoratives in use today. This 1939 baseball stamp showed up in my mailbox yesterday:

I'm using stamps from the 40s, 50s, etc on my current mail. So someone is getting cancels 50, 60, 70 years after issue.

Probably the oldest stamp I've seen on incoming mail in recent years is the Battle of White Plains commemorative from 1926 (Scott #629), but it wasn't postmarked.

I have used commemoratives from as far back as the 20's on mail I am sending. Never mailed anything to myself.
