  1. Hello, Jim! Another great calendar page! The beautiful stamp that marks the date of March, 11 is from the 3rd issue of Federal Bill Stamps in Canada. The year of issue is 1868, but I don't know the Scott catalog number (I'm sorry for that)! Regards, Catalin

    Hey Jim, I was particularly interested in the fact that Dan's calendar is from Knox College, which is located in my hometown of Galesburg, Illinois. Is he located in Galesburg? Because it would be great to have a philatelic contact when I travel back home! Thanks, Ray

    1. No, Dan and I live in the same town in Oregon.

      But he did attend Knox College as an undergraduate, and I believe he may still be in alumni contact with them.
