CALIFORNIA CANCELLATION COLLECTION
See also California postcards.

Collection of approximately 982 different California postmarks, on approximately 982 postcards, most cancelled in the late 1950's and early 1960's, including many DPO's or offices which have since changed status, and many very small towns. All are listed below.

The cancellation collector self-addressed postcards with images from all over the world and sent them under cover to the various postmasters to form this collection. He almost always used commemoratives, and those stamps which were rectangular were oriented vertically -- permitting the dial portion of the cancel to be easily read. He wrote vertically at the left edge of the message side so as to leave maximum room for cancels & auxiliary marks. Occasionally he would decorate the postcard with a seal, but not many got tied. While not all postmasters took special pains with their cancels, it is obvious that many did in response to the politeness of the request. (An example letter of request will be provided with the collection, in case you want to add to the collection yourself.) Almost always regular size postcards were used (avoiding the tendency of larger continentals to get bent). Some postcards got damaged in the mails, but most of them are quite presentable. Truly a labor of love that took several hundreds of hours.

In progress of being listed--noting a few (but not all) of the items of special interest (reasons in parens). All population figures quoted in parens are from the 1950 census; we note those that are 100 people or less throughout.
