MISSISSIPPI CANCELLATION COLLECTION
See also Mississippi postcards.

Collection of more than 132 different small-town Mississippi postmarks on 132 postcards, most cancelled in the late 1950's and early 1960's, including many DPO's, rural stations, and towns whose cancels are not listed in La Posta. Some bearing postmaster's note on discontinuance of nearby DPO's that they then serviced. Note the emphasis on small towns--no Biloxi, no Jackson, no Meridian, no Gulfport. All 132 are listed below, some bearing 2 different cancels for the town.

The cancellation collector self-addressed postcards with images from all over the world and sent them under cover to the various postmasters to form this collection. He almost always used commemoratives, and those stamps which were rectangular were oriented vertically -- permitting the dial portion of the cancel to be easily read. He wrote vertically at the left edge of the message side so as to leave maximum room for cancels & auxiliary marks. Occasionally he would decorate the postcard with a seal, but not many got tied. While not all postmasters took special pains with their cancels, it is obvious that many did in response to the politeness of the request. (An example letter of request will be provided with the collection, in case you want to add to the collection yourself.) Regular-size postcards were used exclusively(avoiding the tendency of larger continentals to get bent). A couple of postcards got damaged in the mails, but almost all of them are quite presentable. Truly a labor of love that took hundreds of hours, and would serve well as the basis for a continued effort.

We list them all below--stating any special considerations. All population figures quoted in parens are from the 1950 census; we note those that are 100 or less throughout the listing.

PRICE: $97.50 postpaid & insured to any US address.

MISSOURI CANCELLATION COLLECTION
See also Missouri postcards.

Collection of more than 860 different Missouri postmarks, on 860 postcards, most cancelled in the late 1950's and early 1960's, including many DPO's or offices which have since changed status. All 860 are listed below.

The cancellation collector self-addressed postcards with images from all over the world and sent them under cover to the various postmasters to form this collection. He almost always used commemoratives, and those stamps which were rectangular were oriented vertically -- permitting the dial portion of the cancel to be easily read. He wrote vertically at the left edge of the message side so as to leave maximum room for cancels & auxiliary marks. Occasionally he would decorate the postcard with a seal, but not many got tied. While not all postmasters took special pains with their cancels, it is obvious that many did in response to the politeness of the request. (An example letter of request will be provided with the collection, in case you want to add to the collection yourself.) Almost always regular-size postcards were used (avoiding the tendency of larger continentals to get bent). Some postcards got damaged in the mails, but most of them are quite presentable. Truly a labor of love that took hundreds of hours.

We list them all--starting with 176 items of special interest (reasons in parens), then the others. All population figures quoted in parens are from the 1950 census; we note those that are 100 or less throughout the listing.

PRICE: $550.00 postpaid & insured to any US address. *!

Accompanied by another handwritten note on two pieces of paper written by McGee [cover not in the correspondence we received] in which he discloses his Aroma location, and lashes out state legislation recently passed. using political slang that is difficult to understand now.

Top of envelope has wrinkling & small dings (one removed about 5% of the upper edge of the dial), also wrinkling at both side edges--leads us to speculate that the damage was noted by the postal authorities rather than the addressee company.

Deckard disputing his account balance with them, stating that their last shipment was damaged, recommending a name they contact for agency, and asking that future mail be sent to him via the Sampson post office (also in Webster County, apparently to avoid more damage). To give you an idea of how small Atteberry was, Google Maps could not show it to you in April 2015! Atteberry operated 1903 - 1906 only, and its La Posta scarcity is 6. $100.00 mm-g(d)!
