2018 Minnesota Stamp Expo Show Covers and Cancellations
The Minnesota Stamp Expo has created three limited edition show covers to celebrate the 77th edition of the show. The covers feature the show theme, Celebrating the Centennial of U.S. Air Mail, and the USPS United States Air Mail Blue stamp. The cachets depict air mail labels, air mail stamps, and a cover for the C.A.M. 9 inaugural air mail flight from Chicago to Minneapolis. Each cover will be franked with a United States Air Mail Blue stamp and cancelled with an unofficial pictorial show cancel.
The cost of each cover is $2.00, however a set of three covers (one of each of the above cachet designs) is only $5.00.
A special limited edition show cover has also been created to commemorate the display of the C3a Inverted Jenny stamp at Minnesota Stamp Expo. The cover features a cachet of the famed C3a Inverted Jenny stamp. A cover with the USPS United States Air Mail Blue stamp affixed is $2.00. A cover with the recent USPS $2.00 Inverted Jenny souvenir sheet stamp affixed is $5.00.
The covers may be ordered by mail on a first come, first served basis for any surplus available after the show. To order, send a note clearly indicating which cachet(s) you want, plus a check (payable to MN Stamp Expo) and a self-addressed stamped #10 envelope to:
