Como Park Post releases new 3¢ stamp

Minnesota’s Como Park Post is one of the latest local posts to issue a new stamp. The Saint Paul-based local post recently released a bicolored 3¢ stamp, and I received a copy on a cover postmarked April 22.

The stamp has a woodcut design containing the letters “CCP” in the same color as the frame, while the value printed in the center of the stamp is a darker shade of blue.

As I’ve mentioned a number of times before, Como Park Post operator Tom B. carves the printing blocks for his stamps by hand. I can only imagine that is a time-consuming process, but you can’t argue with the results!
