JUNO SCULPTURE * MYTHOLOGY * MAXIMUM CARD ITALY
Country: ITALY
Condition: JUNO'S HEAD Rome
Description: FIRST DAY OF ISSUE SPECIAL POSTMARK * A Maximum Card is a picture postcard with a matching postmarked postage stamp affixed on the view side. The ideal maximum card has concordance between elements (depiction on stamp matching the depiction on postcard - or elements of it -- with a postmark that is as closely related as possible to what is depicted on stamp and postcard). However such a perfect concordance is not always 100% achievable because at the time the maximum card was processed there were no matching postmarks available.

GLASS LIBBEY OWENS FORD Toledo 1930s Meter Mark
Country: USA
Condition: GLASS LIBBEY OWENS FORD Toledo 1930s Meter Mark
Description: This is a piece "cut out" from a cover - it is not a cover It comes from the BELLEVUE COLLECTION formed in the 1940s and 1950s when Meter Marks were invariably collected as "cut out" from covers. To this day most thematic collectors present Meter Mark items from "windows" created on their album pages, therefore the need for having the entire cover is rather marginal. OF GREATER SIGNIFICANCE IS THE SCARCITY OF THESE METER MARKS AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO ADD THEM TO ENHANCE IMPORTANT COLLECTIONS
