John F. Kennedy event/memorial covers from other countries

Post by patg »

So Big Saint's great thread on the USA Scott 1246 Kennedy reminded me of a few ones I had from Germany laying around; both event and memorial related.
https://stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=41842
I threw them up here because I didn't want to intrude on his specific topic.

I'm sure there are many different ones from around the world that are out there.
So, if you have something Kennedy related, feel free to share it here.

And, when bear completes his 1246 FDC quest, he can start on Germany Scott 901 :D (which is not a bad looking stamp)

I don't collect JFK but have this one in my Overseas Mailers FDCs of the World collection.

Overseas Mailers was a USA cover producer. Its founder John Bernard (Jay) Leach (1911-2003) founded Overseas Mailers Limited in 1949 in New York. By the time he finished making FDCs in 1978, he had left his very colourful imprint on covers from around the world. Leach made very few covers with his own designs. The bulk of his covers, and there were thousands of them, including USA, Australia, India and China, were produced by distinctively transforming covers originally produced by others. In the case of Australia, Overseas Mailers produced 75 covers of Australia with its last issue in 1965.


The embellishment in the case of this cover from Germany is the addition of the portrait of JFK in violet.

This is a 1965 Overseas Mailers of New York cover for the Philippines.
The distinctive 'Insert' that accompanied each Overseas Mailers FDC is also displayed.

This one won't win any prizes: T&C Isl. 20th "Anniversary" for 22 Nov. Released 22 Dec.??. At least they could have added the $1 stamp that was the other half of the set.

I've done some googling, but can find nothing further on the whys and wherefores of all this.

I wondered why this card had been posted from Mexico, until I checked the date of issue of the stamp affixed. First day of issue for JFK's visit to Mexico.

While my JFK thread continues along:

https://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=41842

I found these "JFK Artcraft" covers from Sarawak:
Image
Image
These are postmarked on the date of issue of US Scott 1246 - JFK but the Sarawak stamps have no relevance to JFK & I would doubt whether they would be fdi. I can only presume that these covers were done for a bit of philatelic fun.

Sometimes I wonder who designs what (see previous posts above):
Image
Now did the US or Argentina design this cover & did they add on or take off the extra printing next to "first day cover" at the bottom of the Argentina fdc :?:
Image
Image
So did the US then copy this 2017 stamp from Argentina :?:
Image
Now I wonder where prolific add on cachetmaker, Jerry Myers of Shelby Township, Michigan, found the idea for this recent add on cachet for this "old" fdc :?:

Kennedy's assassination was not marked by a GB issue- presumably something to do with no other Heads of State to be pictured on a GB stamp?

Here is a design study sheet produced for the 1964 Stampex Exhibition (designer unknown - are you out there?).

The bottom, hand tinted cover, is an enhancement by Overseas Mailers of New York USA. Like all covers by Overseas Mailers, it was only marketed in the USA by John Barnard (Jay) Leach (1911-2003). It may still have the elusive Cyclostyled (Roneoed) Insert that accompanied every cover sold by Overseas Mailers Limited.

So did the US then copy this 2017 stamp from Argentina :?:
Brad :?
The bottom, hand tinted cover, is an enhancement by Overseas Mailers of New York USA. Like all covers by Overseas Mailers, it was only marketed in the USA by John Barnard (Jay) Leach (1911-2003). It may still have the elusive Cyclostyled (Roneoed) Insert that accompanied every cover sold by Overseas Mailers Limited.

No Overseas Mailer insert in the colourised Argentinian JFK fdc (Mellone #177).

Of course for the US JFK issue (Scott #1246) the Overseas Mailer embellishment was to the Chickering Jackson cachet (Mellone #115). :)
