As an officer of the Souvenir Card Collectors Society, I was pleased to come across this 1994 cover -- with possibly the only pictorial cancel mentioning souvenir cards. Really nice layout of stamps and cancel.

Hi jomic:

Thanks for you comments on the aviation pictorials. While not a career aviator, I have loved airplanes since I was six years old and am a private pilot of many years standing. While over the hill by most standards, I still fly my 75 year-old Ercoupe.

Your Christopher Columbus cancel reminded me of this one in my collection. It is strictly a philatelic item with cancel applied at a show or exhibition held at the Marquez Elementary School. It looks like a handback item as it has no barcode markings indicating it went through the mail stream. Nice cancel, though, for ship topicalists.

Don, Thanks for the post! Another beautiful stamp position and cancellation! WOW! You fly an Ercoupe? I'm envious, but I haven't flown in so many years I can't remember just how many years it's been. Your Ercoupe is 2 years younger than me!

Wasn't the Ercoupe the predecessor to the Mooney? My son had an early model Mooney for a while and then traded it in for A BE35.

My coupe a 1947 CD model is 9 years younger than me. It is a pretty benign airplane to fly, no rudder pedals, tricycle landing gear, it was a revolutionary design back in 1938. Not a Mooney predecessor, but Mooney bought the rights to manufacture Ercoupes in the late 1960s and the last Ercoupe was a real hybrid. Mooney dumped the dual vertical fins/rudders and put on the iconic Mooney forward slating vertical fin and rudder. Sort of looks like an Ercoupe, but not exactly!

Here's one someone gave me years ago. Meant to bring it to a stamp club as a giveaway, but then COVID.

Here is a cover with a pictorial or Fancy Cancel, of Scott # 136 Issued Mar,1870 and canceled in ....mouth, Neb in 1882. Stamped on reverse with a CARRIER cancelation.



I find it amazing that back in that time that it took only two days to get from NEB to Washington, DC!

Here is a 1939 cover from a Milwaukee Life Insurance company depicting its headquarters building. Some kind of flaw in the imprint however.
