Early Postal Motor Vehicles

This stamp shows one of the first official gasoline-powered vehicle used by the United States Post Office Department for the collection of mail from street letterboxes. The stamp is one of four 25-cent Classic Mail Transportation commemorative stamps issued November 19, 1989. All four stamps were shown on a previous post on maximum cards issued by the USPS here.

This Maximum card is ©1989 The Maximum Card Collection, A Division of Unicover Corporation. Another early postal vehicle, a mail wagon of the 1920s, is shown on the maximum card.

  1. Beautiful maxicard and stamp! Of course postal vehicles are (also) one of my favourite themes. Thank you for sharing!

  2. i love the look of the postal vehicle on the stamp! its like it embodies the joy of receiving mail :)

  3. Historic vehicle that deserves to be on a stamp.

  4. I seem to have missed these stamps. Thank you for joining in this week.

  5. I've never really thought of postal vehicles as being interesting... I was wrong. (or maybe it's just ours that aren't interesting?!)
