Nice find, Ian! As a Poland collector I know how hard these are to find. Hint, if you ever decide to sell I'm sure you could get a good bid!!!
I quickly checked on line for the top two stamps just to see what they are, no prices, I'll check that later. Here's a web site I found: http://www.stampdomain.com/country/poland/aerotarg/

Harvey:- When I first saw these I thought "I wonder if Harvey has these?"

Sorry to say I'm holding on to them unless I find them on cover (Ha Ha I wish!!).

re: Recent Acquisitions 17

I was doing some checking on the last two stamps. They are very interesting, but not super expensive. I would think they are fairly rare, just not very collectible at this point in time. Your stamps appear to be imperforate, unless they had huge margins. There are some on line that are perfed and the two stamps appear to be issued se-tenant. Your copies are much more interesting because they are used with a regular GB stamp (needed for postage) tied to a piece. I think I read somewhere that on piece is about half of a cover price. I have a NS #3 bisect tied to a piece with a NS #4, nice but I wish it was a cover. I really like your four stamps - good find!

I received this today. It was mailed on Dec 14, 2019 and received Feb 5, 2020. We thought this shipment was lost never to be seen again, but it did show up after having traveled around.

I "guess" a machine could have mis-read the "Canada" as "Guyana" -- but wow - that's a good one.

re: Recent Acquisitions 17

When I was a kid I used to fool around with my signature - thinking it was cool, I guess. Once I missed a few comics in the local store and sent a letter to Marvel in the states to order them. I always sign my name Joseph H. Wolfe (H of Harvey, of course). The comics came back to a Joseph Hailarpe! That taught me a very valuable lesson, two actually, sign your name so people can read it and always make sure the people who work at the post office know you well!!!

Harvey, I was always taught that a signature should be recognised but not able to be read. Mine you would have a heck of a job getting name from.

d1stamper and philb, It’s amazing to me that enough mail gets missent to Guyana that the post office actually has a rubber stamp for it!

re: Recent Acquisitions 17

My 2 main loves (hobby-wise!) are philately and baseball,

so I was quite pleased to find this group of all-different FDC's

for the Babe Ruth stamp of 7/6/1983, Scott #2046.


I found them at an antique and collectibles shop near Muskegon, Mich.



My Mellone's FDC catalog lists them at $6 each; I paid $1 each.
(2007 catalog - the newest I have)

NOTE:

I accidentally purchased 2 of the same FDC of the last image shown here - if anyone
would like to have the extra copy, PM me and I'll send it to you.







I also found this wonderful early postcard depicting a baseball theme, which also has -
written on the reverse - a message concerning baseball teams. The lower right corner shows a year date of 1909 and the card is postmarked what I believe to be 1911.
A wonderful find, in my opinion!

".... I always sign my name Joseph H. Wolfe (H of Harvey, of course).
The comics came back to a Joseph Hailarpe! ...."


I digress a bit, but feel constrained to add the classic story of a man
who was drafted during WW II named R.B. Jones, probably apocryphal but
anyway he signed his draft papers R.(ONLY) B.(ONLY) Jones. His dog-tags
came back, and he was forevermore known as RONLY BONLY JONES.

Classic meaning: I read this in the Readers Digest during High School

Thanks for sharing Vince. I love the strikes on the stampless covers and the homemade Christmas card is very charming. Wonderful items. Hope you're enjoying some nice summer weather up there.
