Brady Hunt will be giving a talk on the Butterfield Overland Express in Indian Territory and its 1958 Centennial Celebration. I think you will enjoy learning about this important part of history and how it relates to pre civil war mail in our state.
Hope you will be there. Meet at Johnnie’s Charburger as usual at 6:00 or so for a meal, with the meeting at the college at 7:00.
Brady has added this interesting post:
I have about 500 or so duplicate Oklahoma covers, mostly 1920s and newer that I will be bringing to the meeting tomorrow. They are alphabetized by town. I’m going to sell them at $5 each. I know some are not worth $5, but some are worth much more. You be the judge. I’ll have them available at OKC stamp club too for the same price until our next postal history meeting. The next time we have Postal History meeting, the price will drop to $4 each for that meeting and following OKC stamp meetings until the next Postal History meeting. The price will drop again to $3 and so on until I get tired of toting them to meetings. You be the judge on whether to gamble if the cover you are interested in will be in the box the next time for $1 cheaper. I may decide to remove a cover or two between meetings, who knows. There will be no discounts at these spectacular prices. The fun is in the gamble if the cover will be around for long. If you want a discount, wait a month for the cheaper price, but you will risk it not being there later. Good luck and have fun.

The regular meeting of the Oklahoma City Stamp Club will be tomorrow night. The doors open at 7:00 PM and the program will begin right after 7:30 PM.
The program is Ralph DeBoard’s talk on the Postal History of Tahiti. This is the same program he gave at the New York Collectors Club last month and is based on his National Gold Medal and International Vermeil Medal Exhibit. So Ralph not only knows his subject, he owns it as well.
This should be a really outstanding opportunity for all of us.
Here is a cover mailed by a – soon to be famous – young 2nd lieutenant
There will be APS and OPS circuit books to buy from, as usual.
See you there.
The program at our next OKC Stamp Club Meeting will be a visit to Tahiti to take a look at it’s Postal History.
