Closeup scans of PSCS, Manila Local Post stamps
When I wrote about the Philippine Stamp Collectors’ Society Local Post for the first time last December, I mentioned information I’d received indicated provisional stamps with face values of P1.00, P15.00, P18.00, and P21.00 had been prepared, but that I had not yet seen them. Today, I’m happy to report that I have seen them, and can share a scan with you.
Ann F., the operator of Manila Local Post, confirmed that the stamps went into use in November 2022.
Manila Local Post last month issued a local post stamp picturing the Rizal Monument in Manila, Philippines, a stamp I’d previously reported seeing on the back of a San Diego Local Post cover. I now have one properly used on a cover from the Philippines, too.
As you can see, there’s also a PSCS stamp or label next to the Manila Local Post stamp. It appears to picture a cartoon cat or something along those lines, but I don’t have any other information about it. Maybe at a future time!
