2020 - Canada - Year of the Rat domestic FDC.

Thank you so much Jean!

P.S. Just wondering if the Canadian FDCs can be used as postage, since they have a printed Day of Issue postmark?
Glad it arrived safely Mark. :D It is signed on the left side by the designers.

The FDCs can be mailed on the day of issue, as the stamps have not paid for any service. I posted this and a few others at Station K on the day of issue (I was at the stamp launch the evening before and prepared them all ahead of time). I'm not sure about mailing them after the date of issue though.

I was wondering whether the Canadian FDCs be can used for mailing because there is a thread about Australian FDCs that can not be used for mailing. I thought that they were just collector items. :)

I never tried until recently, and was only prompted to do so by a Facebook friend in China who collects covers, and he told me that he has received mailed FDCs from Canada no problem, as long as the total franking is correct - i.e. stamps need to be added to make up the correct postage rate - and they are mailed on the date of issue.

Also the Station K staff don't have any issue with it - they let me apply the additional post office cancel myself.

This Koala almost made it into my post office box unscathed but copped the orange line through his ear:
Image
Inside was a welcome gift from Stampboarder Anita, a recent miniature sheet Norfolk fdc:
Image
She had wanted to send it to me without the outer cover which the postal clerk said she could but only if she posted it from Norfolk Island:
Image
A bit extreme I thought for what is an Australian stamp, which it says it is on the bottom of the stamp. Not to mention the postmark says New South Wales 2899.

Thank you Anita. :)

My trips to the mailbox are too rare, so I only saw this last week: two (!) very nice letters from Mark (AMark).

Mark is always generous and kind, and was certainly true to form, with the totally unexpected treasure trove of Canadian stamps issued in 2019 that he so generously sent me.

Many thanks Mark! :D :D :D


First the Christmas and New Year's sparkling card:



Image



And then the amazing, numerous stamps from Canada!:



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



Image



And my favorites, the space and bear stamps:



Image



Image



The latter is particularly evocative, as we now have a cat whose face reminds us of a bear (ok and his body is almost as large)....



Image



Thank you Mark! :D :D :D


Cheers,
Joel.

Glad they all got there safely Peter. I asked for hand sorting to avoid the additional spray on cancel, but looks like 3 of the 5 somehow escaped the yellow flyer, even though they were all sent at the same time.

They all came in this cover with nice postage stamp of India, commemorating the 150th birth anniversary of Gandhiji. Rs 41 value paying the correct postage for registered cover within India, a rare correct rate usage of the stamp used on cover-

Thank you Rolcora for the lovely additions to my thematic collection.

It's too bad that the stamps were not cancelled. :(

Thank you so much Bob!
That is AWFUL :x . It was first day of issue! I was rushing to catch a train and didn't have time to wait in the post office line so dropped them into the mailbox just outside...

Please don't worry about it, Bob. :) It's how the postal administrations work now, they just do not care. :(

Thank you for the very nice cover! :D

A nice set of postage stamps issued by India in 2011 commemorating the Presidential fleet review of Indian Navy used on the cover.

Inside were these nice sets of stamps on actors and entertainment, issued by Finland-
