Hi all

I think I have a candidate for pen cancel of the year here.

Sent to me by my brother in France, “on piece” as saved by his girlfriend from their Italian office, this is a corker.

I don’t recall ever seeing a larger set of Post and Go stamps used like this. Would have made an amazing display cover :(

This one arrived from Glen but unfortunately Dr Evil of Black Pen got to this one even though it was clearly postmarked. There was a plastic cover over Winx & Phar Lap but sadly the plastic was not quite large enough & they were not unscathed:

Dr Evil needs to have his black pen shoved where the sun doesn't shine. :idea:

It is very rare for me to receive ballpoint pen cancelled covers, but this one came yesterday. Apart from the pen vandalism, it also brings up the question of use of old PSE FDCs as postage.
