Just for FUN in conjunction with next week's @@@Great Britain Highlighted Auction Area of the Week@@@ we are going to have a prize drawing!

To enter the contest, just post a message saying so!

The drawing will be held at 8pm EST Sunday May 29th. Deadline for entries is 6pm EST Sunday May 29th.

Here is the prize - a nice, postally used Star wars sheet and other recent commems on piece. There are train stamps, Prime Ministers and a lighthouse - popular topicals. I don't know the catalog value - too new!

Second prize - the tiny Vickie cover!

First name drawn will pick which of the two they want.

Good luck to all and may the Force be with you! Big Grin

re: @@@ Great Britain Week Star Wars Giveaway Contest @@@ We have a WINNER!!!

I decided to add a second prize as some of you don't collect modern GB. So here is an old, raggedy, tiny cover - I have absolutely no idea if the cancel is of any interest as this is not my area of expertise. But who doesn't like a tiny, 144 year old cover, eh?

The first name drawn will be given a choice of the Star Wars sheet or the Mini Cover. Second place winner gets the other one. Even more fun, eh?

AND ... a little bit of frosting on the cake ... I will mail your prize to you with an imperf on the cover! The USPS seems to be phasing out the imperfs so imperf covers may become more and more scarce.

YES!!! It is more fun if open to all! I actually put on my thinking cap and decided it would just be easier to make it open to everyone.

I hope your cover arrived with a cancel? Bob's was cancelled on the back and his imperf was a skip. Drat drat and double drat! LOL My local PO only uses smeary red cancels, so I have been sending my covers on their way into the crap shoot that is the automated cancelling world of the USPS. I REALLY need to get a new MPP! Darn procrastination!

Not anymore..... Went to the P.O. today, and they were kind enough to apply a wonderful C.D.S cancel to the Flannery O'Connor stamp and they also canceled the 2007 Easter seal Stamp that was on the cover..
