Country: FRANCE
Condition: CANNES 1947 THE BEACH & PROMENADE MAXIMUM CARD
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.

WEEKLY CRUISES TO BERMUDA SS PRES ROOSEVELT Meter Mark
Country: USA
Condition: WEEKLY CRUISES TO BERMUDA SS PRES ROOSEVELT 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

ITALIAN ALPINE CLUB 150th ANNIVERSARY (TELESCOPE) MAXIMUM CARD
Condition: ITALIAN ALPINE CLUB 150th ANNIVERSARY (TELESCOPE) MAXIMUM CARD
Description: The Italian Alpine Club (CAI) celebrated its 150th birthday in 2013. To salute the anniversary in grand style the Italian Posts issued a commemorative stamp seen here on a Maximum Card featuring the very poster of the early 1900s that inspired the stamp design; the stamp is cancelled by the pictorial first day of issue postmark featuring the same design: postmark matching stamp, matching postcard...perfect concordance or shall we say MAXIMUM CONCORDANCE: That is to say the perfect Maximum Card. Some collectors expect this to always be the case; in the past this perfect concordance was difficult to achieve and in many cases even in modern times it is not easy to get the three elements blend perfectly. Some collectors are still looking for the pink elephant because they think that rules written in 2013 can change what was done in 1920s-1970s. Let’s be realistic!!! Rules are one thing: reality is a different thing and we live with reality. And let’s not forget: this is a hobby, not an headache! CAI was founded in 1863: its aims include promoting mountaineering, hiking and cave exploration; it also organizes training courses and it implements and maintains footpaths, alpine and mountaineering equipment. CAI is in charge and owns many mountain huts and bivouacs high altitude -- quantified to date in 774 facilities totaling 23,044 beds. CAI promotes scientific and educational activities .

2015 VENICE * BURANO ISLAND * MAXIMUM CARD
Country: ITALY
Condition: 2015 VENICE * BURANO ISLAND * MAXIMUM CARD
Description: Venice is much more than the Rialto Bridge, Gondolas and St. Mark’s Square. This becomes quite apparent when we look at the Maximum Card for the 10 April 2015 stamp issued by Italy to promote tourist attractions. Burano – the slow-paced colorful Venetian island of Lace and Art – is ranking among the top ten places in the world. The island is also very famous for its cuisine, including fish specialties and a risotto with fish. The bright colors of the buildings facing the canals surprise all visitors; the island is known internationally for its superb lace-work and has a very interesting Lace Museum & School. When Leonardo da Vinci visited the island in 1481 he purchased a cloth for the main altar of the cathedral of Milan. The are a few historic sites, a painting by Tiepolo, and the Church of St. Martin.

SCIACCA CARNIVAL PARADE 2015  MAXIMUM CARD
Country: ITALY
Condition: SCIACCA CARNIVAL PARADE 2015 MAXIMUM CARD
Description: CARNIVAL TIME: Italy - the cradle of Carnival [Carne vale in Latin = farewell to meat (because of impending Lent)] - issued two € 0.80 most captivating stamps on 5 February 2015 to salute the colourful carnivals of Sciacca (Sicily) and Putignano (Apulia). Putignano’s celebrations have reached their 621st edition: the stamp depicts Shakespeare’s vane and obese knight known universally as Falstaff surrounded by folkloric masks and at top right, Farinella, the hero of the festivities whose name comes from a local dish made with legumes flour (farina). Activities and magnificent parades take place throughout January until Mardi Gras when, as the countdown to midnight takes place, an avalanche of mouthwatering maccheroni cheers the revellers as Lent steps in. The multi-centenarian carnival of Sciacca, near Agrigento, dates back to 1616. The week before Lent is highlighted by picturesque parades with floats, troupes, dancers, and masqueraders. The stamp depicts the popular impersonation of the event, the unexpectedly agile Peppe Nappa – a colourful and generous glutton, and the monarch of the local carnival. His float distributes free grilled sausages and orange juice during the last parade on Mardi Gras bringing the celebrations to an end with Peppe’s wagon set on fire.
