Como Park Post issues 3¢, 5¢, 7¢ local post stamps

Como Park Post in Saint Paul, Minnesota, this month has released several new local post stamps.

A first day cover mailed on September 17 bears two stamps: a 3¢ red oval on yellow paper, and a 5¢ green oval on green paper.

Como Park Post operator Tom B. also included a pair of 7¢ local delivery stamps, indicating that there were two separate printings. The top stamp shown below is from the original printing, while the bottom stamp from a recut die comes from a subsequent printing. The most obvious area of recutting is evident in the third line of text, where a diagonal line has been eliminated from each side of the word “LOCAL.”

Between Como Park Post, Purgatory Post, and Bat’s Private Post, it seems like there has been a lot of local post activity over the past month or two! I guess I need to start thinking about what will be the next stamp issue for Philosateleian Post
