SA 4.58 – Maxicard Cathrine Booth

This nice Maxicard picturing Cathrine Booth – The Army mother, has just arrived. Rare – I’ve only seen it once on Ebay. The Army mother cited in “Cathrine-Booth” by Booth-Tucker: “Let us ask ourselves not how little, but how much we can possibly spare for the glory of Him who, though He was rich, yet for our sakes became poor, that we through His poverty might be made rich and thus prove that we love in deed and not in word only”

1978 – Sweden – Unlisted FDC

An unlisted Swedish Salvation Army FDC cover was just been observed on an online auction – likely a very RARE item!! The issue pictured Evangelical free churces in Sweden, the SA stamps depict the Stockholm VII Band. I’ve set the number to SA 9.4. According to information, there is even one more unlisted FDC of this stamp issue, but I’ve never seen picture of it.

1967 – US – Cape Canaveral

1967 – US – Cape Canaveral

Cape Canaveral cachet & postmark with Salvation Army stamp. Cape Canaveral is part of a region known as the Space Coast, and is the site of the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. Since many U.S. spacecraft have been launched from both the station and the Kennedy Space Center on adjacent Merritt Island, the two are sometimes conflated with each other. The cachet pictures a rocket in orbit
