1969-1974 KANSAS PRECANCEL SOCIETY EVENT CANCELED COVERS

Thank you buyders for following my postal products. Here is another neat item you will want to add to your collection. You are looking on one (1) 1969-1974 Kansas Precancel Society Event Canceled Covers. This lot includes six different Kansas Precancel Society Annual event canceled covers, one for each year from 1969 to 1974. The covers feature special cachets that honor the precancel stamp show and exhibition. They are themed with a "Jayhawk" which is a fictious bird that refers to a person born in Kansas. The envelopes are #6 3/4 size covers and measures ~6 1/2" by 3 5/8" (inches) or 164 mm by 92 mm. Covers all have rubber hand cancels, unsealed flaps and are in great condition.

The 1969 KPS Spring Festival Event Cover has a Boeing 373 airplane, dropping stamps upon a mob of cheering people. The Boeing 737 is not a bomber, you could not bomb drop stamps effectively and it is unlikely you will ever see a precancel stamp mob..but the plane was made in Wichita where the club was location and where the cover was canceled. Canceled with a rubber hand cancel with a large dial and cancel bars. The dial notes "KANSAS PRECANCEL SOC. EX. STA." "MAR 30 1969" "WICHITA, KS."
