How's this for an idea? We start our own virtual cover calendar. It can be any cover from anywhere as long as it is postmarked on the same day and month that you post it to the topic. For instance, today is January 11th and I will be posting a cover postmarked on January 11th regardless of year.

As I mistakenly posted this on the "postmark" string, here's the cover for today (January 11th):

Since it is now past midnight (EST) and the date is now January 13, 2011, I'm posting this cover:



Hope I'm not the only one keeping up with this. (I didn't have any covers from January 12th handy, so that's why I didn't post one yesterday.)

I do not have many covers (yet) but this thread has so far inspired me to (hopefully) start a cover or at least cut square postmark collection of a calendar nature.

We are now just a few ticks away from the 14th, but maybe someone, somewhere is still on the 12th



From Nabha State to Bandikui in Jaipur State, in India, 1946

I totally meant to post a cover on the 11th, but things came up and I was unable to. Sorry.

Tony, there's no denying that is a Nahba State postal card, but how come both postmarks are from Bandikui?

Well spotted, Smauggie! It's been puzzling me since I turned it up. I can think of three explanations, one possible I suppose, one distinctly unlikely, and one off the planet:
Possible: The card somehow missed cancellation in Nabha, and was duly cancelled with the Bandikui DELivery CDS by a more diligent clerk at the Bandikui PO.
Distinctly unlikely: I'll have to check my maps, but it might just be that there's a patch of Nabha territory close enough to Jaipur territory for the card to have originated in Nabha, but been first cancelled at Bandikui
Off the planet: As these Convention States cards could, theoretically, be used throughout India, someone used it to send a message across Bandikui. From what I know, it would have been easier to walk across town and deliver the message in person than spend ¾ Anna on a postcard.

Piling confusion on confusion, the sender's address was Jaitu, which is now in Faridkot (another Convention State) District! At the very least, I doubt the card is a fake. Not even the most desperate faker would bother.

Okay, here's a cover for the date of January 14 AND January 17, (addressed to the same party as my previous post, only a few years earlier). Although in this case the letter was forwarded to three different addresses before it finally reached the intended recipient.

Based on Google maps approximate mileage, Bernardsville, NJ to New York City (40 miles); New York City to Augusta, GA (800 miles) and Augusta, GA back to New York City (800 miles)...means that this cover travelled at least 1640 miles. That was quite a value for only 3 cents...especially in 1919!

wonderful. I think it will take awhile for this thread to catch on and others like myself to become more organized.

Tony: It is quite pleasantly surprising to find that the possibilities you list are just the ones I thought of. I have to admit that it was you and Rod that really turned me on to postmarks, so I guess I am learning well.

I will admit that I have little frame of reference for the value of the Indian currency of Anna. You have inferred that 9 pies =3/4 Anna so I assume that 12 Pies=1 Anna (same as the pence/shilling ratio in GB).

Smauggie, I'm delighted to have played a part in sucking you in. That you came up with the same possibilities I did shows you're an apt pupil

Just don't try to overtake your masters, though ...

And as it's now the 15th where I sit, here's a 15 January 1913 registered cover from Govindgarh in Patiala State to Bombay:



Here is the front of the cover. The Hindi address begins (far left) with the standard imprecation '74' against evildoers who might delay or steal the letter:



(I described the '74' curse here: http://goscf.com/t/9181 in my post of the 20 November)
