More from the Salon du Timbre

I received this cover from François who must have made a trip to the Salon du Timbre in Paris this past week. I wanted to send myself a cover with this label on it but I didn't get a chance to. This label features key people from French history: Louis IX, François I, Henri IV, Louis XIV, Napoleon and General de Gaulle. Thank you François!


I also received this postcard that I had sent myself from the Salon. It was a postcard we bought at Disneyland and we happened to have it handy at the Salon so I stuck a newly issued "sports" stamp on it and mailed it back to myself. It's postmarked with the first day of issue postmark.

I sure wish Canada Post would have come out with something like that...I hate our Olympic stamp..thought it looked like a red arrow...

The French stamp is clearly for the olympics and yet none of the official info I've read regarding this stamp mentions the olympic games.
