Create a collection of Tyrannosaurus rex postmarks
Postmark Pursuit by Molly Goad
The United States Postal Service is offering 21 different pictorial postmarks featuring a Tyrannosaurus rex, including the Aug. 30 Greensboro, N.C., cancel shown nearby.
Each postmark has its own take on the T. rex. Most of them simply show either the head of T. rex or its full body. A Newport News, Va., cancel from Turnberry Boulevard includes a background image of trees. The Aberdeen, Md., postmark depicts T. rex putting a letter in a mailbox.
Some of the dinosaurs look fierce (Summerville, S.C.), while others appear friendly (Lawrenceville, Ga.).
Four new forever stamps featuring the massive dinosaur became available Aug. 29. Details of the new stamps were published in the Aug. 26 Linn’s.
