My second career, I worked at a Federal Office Building, and became friends with the mail clerk. He saved all the Official Mail stamps that were received in the mail. When I retired I had hundreds of the official mail stamps. During all his time only a few of the 0133's were received, here is one.


I would be interested in seeing other examples of 0133 from different areas?

Please keep your response to the question above and not meta discuss. For meta discussion please start another thread. Thank you.

re: 0133 Official Mail

Aside from the $5 stamp, there are a bunch of collectors who would like to get those "Official Mail" meters as well! So don't toss those because they aren't stamps!

I spent many hours myself in Federal Office buildings fixing computers and printers during my career.

I certainly do not have an O133 on cover, or on piece, in my USA collection. I think this stamp might be difficult to find used with an identifiable town cancel. It has been a week and nobody on Stamporama has shared one here. I checked eBay/stamps and there are many MNH O133s, First Day covers, and philatelic covers, but no legit postally used covers or on piece usage to be found there. There are postally used copies on eBay that have been soaked, but the stamp is small and no town postmarks that I could read, just like your example above, if it were soaked, you would not know what town it came from.

Nice piece, uncommon in my opinion, thanks for sharing it with the club.

Linus, thank you.

This example was on a cardboard package.

re: 0133 Official Mail

I understand that 0133 Official Mail is some kind of service stamp. What what does 0133 mean? Some non US stamp collector have no clue.

Lerivaage, 0133 refers to the catalog number we use on this side of the pond.

We naturally assume everyone know what we mean when we say stamp #***. It's really not obvious unless you are a stamp collector!
