Hi all, I seem to recall the 8c Liberty series definitive (blue background, red statue of liberty) being discussed as being difficult to find on cover. Am I dreaming? If not, can someone point me to the right source?

It's not "rare", but a single use on cover is definitely a slightly premium cover. Here is one I sold for $10 last year.

I guess they're more popular in the services than in the general public. and London is the final destination of all these guys. thanks for sharing, Roy, and for putting it in perspective.

I should note that it's a Naval cachet and Army and AF APO (the AF became independent in 1947)

I checked a well-known cover dealer's stock (our very own Roy Lingen!) and found not one, ditto Jim Forte and Ebay. Ebay has scores of singles, blocks, even a sheet, as well as FDC's, but nary a postally used cover. Interesting. It seems that "common" stamps on cover are only common if you can find them!

The USNS Lt James Robinson was a WWII Victory ship, built near the end of the war. About 574 Victories were built and this one was originally named the Czechoslovakia Victory.
The cover date shows it was sent during a trip up through Baffin Bay to the US Air Base in Thule, Greenland. Baffin Bay is frozen over except for June, July and August, or was until the Climate Change Hoax limited the ice significantly, making it navigable most of the year. :: sarcasm:: Don't Tell Anyone

It is a nice naval cover.
