Chile Mint Christmas Card
offers online reminded me that I had an unusual stamp on stamp Christmas
card in my collection. Being the season, I decided to share it with you all.
around the world sent/send season's greeting cards to collectors who had
yearly new issue subscriptions, and several have reproductions of stamps on
them. I have acquired several, but this Chile card is my
year this card was sent out, was also the year that the Chile
mint celebrated its 225th anniversary, with a set of four
stamps--one reproducing the first coin minted in Chile, and another, a
stamp on stamp, reproducing the first stamp printed by the mint in 1912 (Sc #C288-C289)
is on cream colored stock and the face, with burgundy imprints, has a large
seal, "CASA DE MONEDA" in an ornate scrollwork and the date,
"DECIEMBRE 1968" in smaller typeface.
message page is what makes the card special. The two stamps mentioned above
are imprinted imperforate, from the same plates and in the issued colors.
They are unique.
greeting is below, in pretty lettering: "La Casa de Moneda
le desea Felices Pascuas y Prospero Ano Nuevo".
remembered high school Spanish, and later Google search, translated

his I-phone, typed in translate "Felices Pascuas" and got a message that said it was also a
shortened version of "Felices Pascuas de Navidad"--"Merry
remember being a bit reluctant when buying the card, as I was then, a
new stamp on stamp collector, and the price would have bought a lot of needed issues, but I was always drawn to the
unusual over the normal. It turned out to be a good buy, as the two offerings
were for four times what I paid!
Holidays and Happy SoS Collecting in the New year!
Stamps on stamps
of stamps on stamps is one of the most diverse of all topicals.
Ever since Sir Rowland Hill first advocated the use of prepaid pieces of paper
to be adhered to letters to expedite their delivery, the postage stamp has
fascinated people. It should come as no surprise, then, that the postage
stamp is being used as a stamp motif, and that
topical collecting of stamps on stamps is popular. The topic of stamps on
stamps is an interesting one in that it covers many different areas and
avenues while still being true to the stamp topic.
