One for the 17th, yesterday, and one for the 18th, today. As a complete aside, does anyone know when the airogram format disappeared from general usage and why?

Another for Feb 18th. This is an LL plate block of the 1960 4c Olympic Rings and Snowflake (Scott 1146) -- alignment of the cancel is quite impressive.

Here are a couple of interest for Feb. 20, including an early stick and tick which is a tad late for the intended Christmas Card rush.

Here's one purely for fun. I was looking for a February 23rd cover to post here (didn't find one) but I did come across this so I thought I'd include it.



What's wrong? Can you see it?

Answer: The date is shown to be February 23, 1980 but if you look at the catalogs, the correct day of issue should be February 25, 1980. That also goes along with the fact that the cachet even notes the celebration of "National Letter Writing Week" (do we have that anymore?) from February 24 to March 1, 1980, so it wouldn't make sense that the stamps were issued before that date.

Upon closer inspection, the day of issue is correct at February 25th. It's just that the postmark hit the stamp right at its bottom perforation and created the optical illusion that the "25" was a "23".

Sure had me fooled for awhile until I enlarged it to see the true date!
