I really prefer the design of maxi cards where there is a panel or plain area for the stamp. The stamp and cancel does not then spoil the image.



e.g. The image in the one shown on the link below is spoilt IMO

Thanks DC3

Snap!

Amazingly some time ago I produced my own card using the same NZ 30c stamp. Technically its not yet a maxicard, as I need to get it franked. Where I'm not sure yet.

The postcard was purchased through Delcampe France. My thought was the the images were very similar.

'La passion du cheval' - 'The passion of the horse'.
Postcard produced by R Trouyet in Vence France.

Hi DC3

As far as I am aware the NZ Health Stamps 1984 Year of the Horse set was not produced as a maxicard - so you may have a fairly unique piece. I see it was postmarked Pakuranga on the correct day - 1/8/84. (There was a FDC with the complete set).

I may have some maxi-card spares. Let me know if you want to do a 1 for 1 swap anytime.

Yes, Bas, in the future we should swap some maxicards. :) I have seen some of your your MCs a few years ago, as you uploaded them.

A little background info.

The Black Robin self adhesive CAL (No 214) was released on the Chatham Island 22/12/09, and FDCs were postmarked 22 DEC on the island , but not until 23 DEC on the mainland. (Your MC was stamped in Christchurch on the mainland).

You use the term FDC in the larger sense, to include maximum cards, right? But then you would expect a First Day cancel, right?

Usually, by "cover", most of the other philatelists besides me understand "envelope"/"letter".
Also, a maxicard does NOT need necessarily a First Day cancel/postmark; we all agree on that, right?

Hi DC
Yes agree with all that. Its a widespread misconception that maximum cards are at their best when they have a 1st day of issue postmark.

The interesting thing for me about your black robin maxi is that it could be a very limited card. (Normally only 1000 CALs are produced - that was original the minimum quantity).

Because I haven't seen a FDC of with the black robin, I'm unsure if these have a special postmark for the first day of issue in the Chatham Isles. It would seem the ones posted in NZ possibly had a standard PM.

I'm on the hunt for details on the black robin FDC and maxicard, so will report back with any new info

NZ Post produced a Black Robin stamp value in 1985 $2 and you can find 1000's of those as FDCs, but not maxicards.

For me the position of the stamp is important.

Why would anyone stick a stamp over the main feature when there is a better space available. Here the stamp is stuck over the cable car image when there is plenty of clear space to the right.



Better positioning on this one from the same set

A recent purchase, although having 2 stamps it is not classed a maxi-card. (Near enough for me ).

The card pictures a 4 man bob-sleigh which makes it a sadly interesting card IMO.

The FIBT World Championships 1966 took place in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy for the sixth time, having hosted the event previously in 1937 (Two-man), 1939 (Four-man), 1950, 1954, and 1960. The Four-man event was cancelled following the death of West Germany's Toni Pensperger during competition.

Pensperger would be awarded a posthumous gold medal from the FIBT along with his surviving team-mates Ludwig Siebert, Helmut Werzer, and Roland Ebert. As of 2010, Pensperger's death would set the FIBT to increase and improve safety among all bob-sleigh competitions at all levels, including the Winter Olympics and the World championships.



Interesting the one I purchased has a good date IMO - the start date 29/1/66. However this one I saw on eBay was postmarked one day before the event.
