U. S.-Mexico Special Delivery
R. B. Preston
advises that on a recent visit
to Mexico he sent home several letters franked with Mexican stamps and
a U. S. Special Delivery stamp to his wife in New England.
acquired a number of interesting covers with mixed franking.
the Mexican post office cancelled all the stamps; on others they
the U. S. stamp, but in all cases his U. S. home post office honored
letters with special delivery service. Not new, but a simple
of securing interesting modern covers, and likely the same arrangements
would apply in many other foreign countries. It's an idea if
would like some unusual modern-day covers. (Please don't
to ask what such covers would be worth. The idea is offered
diversion, not as a short-cut to profit.)
