This Anna postal stationery cover from Indore (Deschl E1)



was the only envelope issued by Indore; it's quite common, as these things go.

However, it has a nice strike of the Indore State post office at Ujjain, an important and very holy city in the neighbouring State of Gwalior. This was a unique arrangement between the Indore and Gwalior States, which allowed an Indore post office to operate on Gwalior soil. There was nothing identical anywhere else in India.

Another little point of interest about the cover is the address. It begins (enclosed by two sets of parallel lines) with the famous curse of 74 on anyone delaying or interfering with the letter. Frits Staal explained the curse this way:
"Envelopes even more than single stamps are often marked with scribbles, lines, dots, or other symbols that are supposed to prevent them from being taken away or opened by unauthorized outsiders. A similar practice adopted by Hindus in Jammu and Kashmir, Indore, Jaipur, and so on is to write: //74// at the beginning of the address to insure safe delivery of the letter. ... Professor Bruce Pray has drawn my attention to a story translated from the Hindi in Linguistic Survey of India, vol. VI, pp48-49 about the miraculous powers of song. The singer Tan-sen sang with such force that all the lamps at the court of Emperor Akbar lit themselves, and Tan-sen himself burst into flames and fell down dead. Earlier, he had warned that if such a thing would happen, he could be brought to life only by Queen Kamla of Chittaur. The Emperor therefore attacked Chittaur and a terrible battle ensued. Seventy-four and a half maunds (one maund being equal to approximately 80 lbs.) of sacred threads were collected from the corpses of the slain. Queen Kamla was taken prisoner, and when ordered to sing, she sang with such force that her soul burst its way through her skull and went to heaven, leaving the audience with their mouths open in astonishment. The number 74 is still written on letters as the strongest of seals, for "the sin of the slaughter of Chittaur" is thereby incurred by all who violate the letter."
Frits Staal, The Stamps of Jammu & Kashmir, pp124-125

Q/ What is behind the propaganda design rocket in the indicia? An intergalactic metallic jellyfish?

Q/ Anybody care to guess what folk tale is represented in the artwork? Or what the chicks are doing?

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Another one for World Postal Stationery, this time from Japan.

Pretty sure that this is one of their lottery postal cards.

I chose to redact the names from the English text.

Cheers,

/s/ ikeyPikey

Does anyone recognize this coat of arms? I don't think this is an item of postal stationery as it's just a coat of arms on the front of an envelope, but I want to make sure before I dismiss it. No country name - no face value, etc.

Thank you! It's the state seal - I've found other matches now that I have something to go by. Now I have to determine the age of the envelope. Might be some sort of state envelope stationery.

Hi,

A 1965 predecimal Australian aerogramme with an added 1c QEII stamp to pay the 9c rate in 1966.




Best wishes,

Andrew: Thanks for sharing the aerogramme. I like aerogrammes. They seem to have fallen out of favor amoung collectors, which is GOOD for those of us that still collect them. To bad no one does a world wide catalog of these anymore. Getting hard to find even the country versions printed locally in each country. Oh well, so much for progress...

Hi,

A different aerogramme from Australia:



The 1c QE II stamp is used to uprate the 9c aerogramme.

Note also the use of a mute cancel.

Best wishes,
AndrewG
