A Philatelic friend sent me two packages of philatelic back issues on the same day, same post office (Mobile, AL USA). Once they left Mobile that departed ways. Package #1 arrived today and package #2 is sitting in Hattiesburg, MS distribution center. It makes me wonder why.
#1 has a run of Illinois Postal Historian & The Philatelic Foundation Bulletin.
Package # 2 will have a complete run of the "Penny Post"

Here is the tracking information for the 1st package

There were 60 "Greetings From" stamps and 1 1cents stamp. The marker monkeys had fun with this package. They were all cancelled neatly with an Mobile, AL hand stamp but there was a marker to completely obliterate the stamps to keep them from being reused. I don't think it was my local Post Office because I receive a lot of philatelic mail with lots of stamps that are not marked with a marker. The 1cents stamp escaped the marker though. I hope my next package arrives without the marker.

re: Tale of two packages

The bottom row last stamp was an effort to remove the marker with "Goof Off" but it removed all the ink from the stamp.
