LOME POSTMARK 24 March 1983 * THERE NEVER EXISTED THIS MAXIMUM CARD WITH FIRST DAY OF ISSUE POSTMARK – EITHER THIS OR NONE * IF YOU OPT FOR NONE, THEN YOUR COLLECTION IS NOT COMPLETE *** VERY VERY RARE MAXIMUM CARD * [AFTER 40 YEARS COLLECTING MAXIMUM CARDS I KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING] By the way this and similar cards offered here were prepared by Professor Morera – THE GREATEST AUTHORITY IN MAXIMUM CARDS — In those days maximum cards were not produced by the 100s, Prof. Morera sent a few cards to the various post offices and that was that, were it not for him there would be none of these very important and rare maximum cards *** 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.
