They who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety. -Benjamin Franklin

This is probably a silly thing to post and a complete waste of bandwidth, but this cover I received yesterday caught my fancy. At first glance I saw 2 pairs of 6c flag definitives inartfully joined at the perfs. Then I looked again and felt for the seam with my fingers, and not finding it, had to get my magnifier to prove to myself that this was, indeed, a complete plate block, which appears to be joined pairs only by a coincidental pair of cancels. Looks kind of cool!

That's a good one! They couldn't have done that if they had tried.
