Time to start a new 'Recent Acquisitions Thread.
Here are some new items for my WW2 era collection that came in the mail this week. Ten different letter sheets with different propaganda slogans printed on the top. The sheets are 6x8". The small printing under the image is © J.M., N.Y. 1943. I wonder if there are matching envelopes and adhesive stamps to match this set.

I think I found a match for you, Vince.

Here's an ebay listing for some items by "Jacques Minkus" of New York:

Jacques Minkus Patriotic Stationary

Yup, THAT Minkus!

There's a wikipedia page...
...and it describes Minkus' association with Gimbel's department store, in New York.

I live near Vancouver and checked the Clark County website and the address is for a duplex built in 1942 and it's still there.

I love to take old postcards and look up the address on Google Street View! Recently there was a rather gothic old hotel in Lakewood NJ 1909 postcard for sale on eBay.

And what's there today.... Sad! Entire neighborhood wiped out!

re: Recent Acquisitions 18

I just ordered this one for my DC-3 collection. It's not a DC-3 of course but it adds to the story of the DC-3 being part of the early email attempts, in Canada this time. There's an interesting story about the company.

Image Not Found

Found this on the internet:

Yukon Airways & Exploration Co.

In early 1927 a Dawson -based RCMP corporal named Any Cruickshank left the police force and joined an American prospector named Clyde Wann, to pursue a dream - to establish the first commercial air service in the Yukon.
By spring they had formed the Yukon airways and Exploration Company, and placed an order for a Ryan B-1 Brougham airplane, arriving in Mayo on October 26, 1927 with Andy Cruickshank at the controls, the "Queen of the Yukon" was wrecked in a landing accident at Whitehorse.
For the next 15 months, until a second Ryan could be purchased, a three-place open-cockpit bi-plane was used to serve the growing demand for air service.
On August 17, 1929 the Company took delivery of their new Ryan, the "Queen of the Yukon II" crashed on take-off at Mayo, killing the pilot. Less than four weeks later the faithful old bi-plane had an engine failure and was wrecked in the forced landing near Carmacks. The Yukon's first commercial air service was out of business permanently.

re: Recent Acquisitions 18

My friend just sent me a joke which fits the above rather well.

Two hunters got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose.

They bagged six.

As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could only take four moose.

The two lads objected strongly. "Last year we shot six, and the pilot let us put them all on board,and he had the same plane as yours" they said.

Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded, however even with full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down.

A few moments after, climbing out of the wreckage, John asked Ralph, "Any idea where we are?"

"I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year." says Ralph.

re: Recent Acquisitions 18

In my almost complete Yemen collection prior to the Wallpaper stamps of the late 1960s and early 1970s, it is truly one step at a time. The most elusive missing stamps are probably the #1 to #3 set.
The stamps are rare, expensive and so often counterfeited that one has to be extra cautious. We even have dealers selling replicas, to fill the slots of frustrated collectors.

I finally added a good copy (to my eyes) of #3. Still need the #1, and with luck I will not have to wait another 3 years! I am missing two fairly common stamps Scott #49 and #70, but I am reluctant to buy a full set, typically sold, as I am missing just one stamp. I am missing a few of the 1945-1949 hand overprints on the 1930-1940 issues, but these are another stories...again one at a time if I ever see them!

Very happy with the #3 just acquired!
Copy attached.

re: Recent Acquisitions 18

As a early Yemen collector, this is what you have to contend with:
Image Not Found

Dealer selling as: YEMEN , 1926, 5B BLACK LARGE SHEET OF 20 ESTIMATE VALUE 7000$ , COPY $25.00
I like their estimated value...LOL
Anyone with a pair of scissors can now be the proud owner of 20 stamps (catalog value 20x$60-$70=1,200-$1,400) There are quite a few of those selling on ebay, full sheets and stamps!

This counterfeit sheet (copy as they call it) is now loose in anyone's unscrupulous hands. Would you think that the stamp dealer selling it as a copy would go through the trouble of marking the stamps, like any reputable dealer should?
Example of reputable seller:

I am so furious at what we let them get away with. There is no excuse.
