Rain or shine, the mail is delivered

This exchange envelope from Kathy S came in the rain...



...and sadly with the dreaded sharpie cancel on this fantastic stamp.

  1. The sharpie is a pity, but the envelope is very nice. I had never seen that stamp.

    1. The stamp is from the Modern Art in America sheet issued in 2013. I sent you some of them on a TFP envelope. You can see the information here: Modern Art in America Stamps .

    4. They are impressive stamps. I hope they create another set like that in the future.

  2. Nice stamp indeed.

    If we would know where the scribbling postman (m/f) would live, we could make a nice postmark rubberstamp and send it to him or her, so he or she can use it instead of a felt pen :-)

    1. I think we'd be sending a lot of rubber stamps...

    1. It is a wonderful sheet of stamps, long since sold out. They made a nice effort to create stamps of different sizes, as well as being relatively large so that the art can be appreciated on the small canvas.
