Cinco De Mayo Joint Issue

Post by Ron Bosbyshel » Tue, 28 Apr 1998 04:00:00



I sent off an order last week to the Philatelic Fulfillment Center, that
included a block of 4 of the Mexico version of the Cinco De Mayo joint
issue (#814081). I got the $1.55 price and the order number from the
April 13 issue of Linn's. Today I got my order and the listing had a 17
next to the price for the Cinco De Mayo. The footnote at the bottom says
"17 Item off-sale/No longer available". What's going on? These were just
released on April 16th. The order number appears correct since the
description is correct. Has anyone else tried to order this issue and
gotten the same message? Has anyone gotten the stamps?

Cinco De Mayo Joint Issue

My form from the PFSC has the message "Item(s) Not Available Placed on
Backorder". I received it a couple of days ago.

The item number on my form is 814803 and the price is $1.65. Sounds like
they raised the price (must be that strong Mexican peso) and gave it a new
item number. I placed this order by phone so the clerk may have made an
adjustment to it without even pointing it out (assuming I used the ...081
number).
