Marshall Islands stamps

P=have O=don’t have it

Flag of Marshall Islands

A group of atolls and reefs in the North Pacific Ocean, about one-half of the way from Hawaii to Australia.

The Marshall Islands were first settled in about 1,000 BC by people of Mayo/Polynesian stock. It was visited by Spanish navigators in the 16th century seeking a westerly route to the Spice Islands. In 1788, British sea Captain John William Marshall sailed through these atolls and proclaimed them Marshall Islands.

The Marshall Islands were German possession from 1885 to 1914, Sized by Japan in 1914 and taken by US in WW II.

After almost four decades under US administration as the easternmost part of the UN Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, the Marshall Islands attained independence in 1986 under a Compact of Free Association. Compensation claims continue as a result of US nuclear testing on some of the atolls between 1947 and 1962. The Marshall Islands hosts the US Army Kwajalein Atoll (USAKA) Reagan Missile Test Site, a key installation in the US missile defense network.

Stamps Day, 50th Anniversary AFDCS

#610 Inside #856a: US #610O

The first modern day First Day Cover that was created by George W. Linn for the U.S. 2¢ Harding Memorial stamp of September 1, 1923.

#34a

Inside #856b: Marshall Islands #34aO

The Marshall Islands Postal Service's own first stamp issue of May 2, 1984, marking the Inauguration of the Marshall Islands Postal Service. The First Day Cover shows a cachet designed by Howard Koslow.

#C76 Inside #856c: US #C76P

The First Day Cover of the U.S. First Man on the Moon stamp of 1969, which set a world record for a single stamp issue of 8,743,070 First Day Covers on September 9, 1969. The master printing die for this stamp was carried to and from the moon in July, 1969. The First Day postmark reproduces the July 20, 1969, postmark of the first moon mail to which a proof of the 10¢ stamp was affixed and canceled on the moon.

The First Day Cover on the stamp shows a Fleetwood-brand cachet that was designed by Fred T. Labitzke.

Inside #856d: Marshall Islands #856a-d

The complete official Marshall Islands Postal Service FDC of the very set of four stamps that is being issued by the Marshall Islands for 2005 Stamp Day. The cachet of the FDC is designed by Herb Kawainui Kane. This is probably the first time that a stamp pictures its own First Day Cover.
