Oh, how much I love those 'mis-sent' stamps! Even though they take a lot of our patience. I collect them, too, as they are a sign of the mail's big travel adventure, and I already have one (mis-sent to Canada, on route from Spain to Netherlands).

Beautiful stamps (rubber- and arti-) by Cascadia Artpost, too!

This envelope from Jack Lattemann of Cascadia took more than a month to arrive in the UK, it came via Barbados.

Nice work from XXJones!! Sehr hübsch!

And this rather plain envelope arrive today. The interesting bit is that it came minus a stamp and I was not asked to go to the post office and pay!

It is from B.E. Pilcher here in England.

I collaged the UN stamps with postmark (note different colored paper background) onto the Philatelic envelope, which I found in Greece.

Hey Alan, I'm surprised that it didn't originate with you.  :^)  ~Bill @ The Olathe Poste
