Special Cancellations

There are a few special cancellations that would like to mention to everyone. The first two are in commemoration of the 9/11 attacks specifically for the Flight 93 crew and passengers.
The cancellations would look something like the ones above. Here is the address you would need to send your self addressed-stamped envelopes/postcards to:

Pictorial Cancellation
C/O Postmaster
Po Box 9998
Shanksville, PA 15560

The second cancellation is from Racine, Wisconsin. They issued one to commemorate 9/11 heros. (there is no picture of this one, but I will post one when I get my postcard back).The address for this postmark is:

Special Cancellation
Police Tribute Station
West Racine Branch
1300 Perry Ave
Racine, WI 53406

Personally, I always send a postcard to get my cancels. I address it to myself (obviously) and stamp it. Then I simply write above the area on the left side (where you usually write a message) "Please cancel here too". They usually do which gives you a nicer one than on the stamps. =)


  1. Both of them are really nice and special.

  2. I sent out for mine today. I will post pictures of them when they make their way back to me. =)
