When is a FDC not a FDC, especially not 3 FDCs!

Post by norvic »

A large cover from Philatelic Sales of Uruguay PO. A nice selection of stamps on the cover, posted 26 March 2009,as evidenced by the circular handstamp on the front (and about 20 times on the back!)

But what do we have here? Two triangular flower stamps with an earlier postmark, 12 March:

Image

And the International Polar Year MS, with a 2 October 2008 postmark!

Image

The Panadero stamp is postmarked 18 November 2007, and the shells block is also 2007

Image Image

All with a regular postmark from the office of posting also dated 26 March.

Obviously the philatelic service has applied older stamps and cancelled them each with their relevant first day postmarks! I've never seen the like of it before, but I suppose it can't be the only one?

Not quite the same thing though is it? The Uruguay one passed through the ordinary post just once.
