Too large for the mailbox but it was left on the front porch yesterday ...
I picked up this 1917 Edition of Scott's Modern album from eBay. Although one cover is starting to separate from the binding, the pages are amazingly fresh for being 100 years old. A spot check of the stamps finds not much of note, mostly common, minimum catalog value, some with faults, although nothing later than the publication date. I did find a few U.S. revenues and Australian States that I can use, and two envelopes of loose, worldwide and a couple of later covers, including one 1946 APO from occupation forces in Japan.
An unexpected bonus ... at today's going rate worth what I paid for the album ... a nearly full package of Dennison hinges.

This has been an exceptionally good summer for postcards written in Volapük on eBay! Here's my latest arrival, in my opinion the best of this summer's haul. It was written in 1894 by Josef Bernhaupt, the Austrian postmaster in Beirut and the foremost proponent of Volapük in the Ottoman Empire, to Rupert Kniele, the author of Das erste Jahrzehnt der Weltsprache Volapük (The First Decade of the World Language Volapük, 1889), which is my most valued source for information like this.

Yet another Volapük postcard: the fourth (and probably the last) of this summer's eBay bonanza. This one was sent in 1900 by an F. Graeme Davis in South Dakota to Ludwig Zamponi in Austria. I also have a couple of cards written by Zamponi in my collection.

I received a 48 page tabloid size price sheet from Mystic. Amazing they will send out these. It must not be cheap.

Received these about 2 months ago and just recently got to work with them. I had to sweat several of them apart and a few have some adhesion. These were part of a large collection I purchased and they were just visible in the photos and I guess they were missed by others. Thought I would share my good fortune with others on the site. Rich

"Gordon Bennett" of the balloon cinderella was, I think, the man who provided the origin for the exclamation.

I picked up a set of 37 cent Greetings from America set (already separated) at face for my singles album. Nothing special but more spaces in the album filled.

I received a new Mystic 2017 U.S. catalog in the mail. It seemed to have more pages than the one received last year. It can be a convenient quick reference.

This was in my mailbox on Friday:

Front:

Back:

The horizontal line about 30% up from the bottom is from a stock sheet holding the coupon.

This is an example of the first reply coupons for the French colonial empire. They were printed on Type IV international reply coupons. Those were probably considered obsolete as they did not mention a time limit for their redemption, which had been introduced after they were originally issued. This one was originally an IRC for Tunisia.

I also have one that was an IRC for France. As that one already said France at the bottom, the name FRANCE at the bottom was not included when overprinting it. The Hurtre catalog of reply coupons also lists an IRC of France overprinted for ALGERIA. Presumably there were also IRCs overprinted for use in Tunisia and Morocco, but the second half of the Hurtre catalog, in which they would be listed, has not yet been released.

According to the Hurtre catalog, these were issued on Feb 1, 1927.
