Elvis Our ‘U.S. Mail’
I came across this nifty little stamp collector’s commemorative recently in an Arvada, Colorado antique store from 1999. Never been a stamp collector beyond a short time when I was about 10 and bought one of those sacks of cancelled world stamps which you were expected to sort through and then attempt to match them up to a page in a basic collector’s “world stamps” booklet. I remember that drill driving me almost crazy as hardly any stamp ever lined up with the booklet’s listings and so I turned my attention to coins – which I couldn’t afford beyond the most basic ones.
I do remember the black U.S. pennies being dirt common back then – with a few always showing up in any given pocketful of a parent’s change. Haven’t seen one floating around for years-and-years.
