Como Park Post issues new 3¢ stamp

First off, loyal reader, Happy Thanksgiving. It has been 20 years since I launched Philosateleia, and I never cease to be amazed at how many folks have taken an interest in my website. Thank you for your support.

Now, for today’s featured item, we have a new stamp from Como Park Post out of Saint Paul, Minnesota. The 3¢ design is printed in green on yellow paper, and was issued November 13.

As I’m mentioned before, Como Park Post operator Tom B. handcarves the wood blocks he uses to print his stamps. It’s an approach that hearkens back to some of the earliest postage stamps created in the 19th century, and one can’t help but be impressed!
