This is an Interpex cachet – used at the United stamps exhibition, 04 July 1965. It has the Salvation Army stamp on it, but sadly, it is not an FDC as the stamp was issued only two days earlier. There is also a cindarella stamp “Fight Communism” attached on it (this was some years after the McCarthy period).
The Catskill Mountain House, which opened in 1824, was a famous hotel near Palenville, New York, and in the Catskill Mountains overlooking the Hudson River Valley. In its prime, from the 1850s to the turn of the century, it was visited by three U.S. presidents (U.S. Grant, Chester A. Arthur, and Theodore Roosevelt) and the power elite of the day. In the 1960s it must have been used as a Summer School Facility. The cachet showcase the facility and has the Salvation Army stamp from 1965 on it (not FDC).
Handpainted Helping Hands motif on Christmas FDC – Painted on a 1965 Salvation Army FDC. Date: Double dated: 18 Oct 1990 & 02 July 1965. The Helping Hands motif has also been issued on other Salvation Army FDCs, see for example the Helping Hands logo on a Swiss SA FDC (SA 17.2). The artist is Wildermuth (his cachets are quite popular).
This 100 Jahre Zuri-tram cover was used with another stamp in the anniversary serie: the 100 Jahre Zuricher Strassenbahn stamp. The shown cover does not not FD cancel and has the Salvation Army centenary stamp SG 1047 on it. It’s very rare to see this tram cover with Salvation Army stamp. I doubt that an FDC with this combination exists.
This very pictorial flight cover from the Netherlands Indies is a First Flight cover from the K.N.I.L.M. It commemorates the opening of the Soerabaja – Makassar route and has some Salvation Army stamps from the 1936 set on it. Very nice cover. I’ve seen this cover occassionally on Ebay, but never with SA stamps before.
A nice postcard with a scenery from Malan, Netherlands Indies. Three of the Salvation Army Community Welfare stamps has been placed on the frontside. Postmarked 12.09.1933 (not FDC) in Malan. Must be a rare cover.
Very nice and rare Antartic cover from the German Antartic North Victoria Land Expedition in 1989. The expedtion was called Antartic Ganovex V with the ship M/V Polar Queen. The cover has the Norwegian Salvation Army centenary stamp on it (“Slum sister” Othilie Tonning) and postmarked “Packet boat”. Signed by the Captain! Very pictorial slogan postmarks!
Centenary Celebration in the Netherlands 1987. The ticket had the Centenary Salvation Army stamp of 1987 attached. The Jubileum was celebrated in Utrecht – Irene Hall, 17 October. This is a proof of access to the closing event. The color of the card indicated the space where the holder had a reserved space.
