Terminologies used in Stamp Collecting - Cancellation Marks or PostMarks


If you ever happen to participate in a contest or happen to visit any one of the contests, you might come across a rule that says, ?Stamps that are postmarked not later than December 31, 2004 alone are valid?. And what you infer from this? All post offices, on receipt of the letters from the general public, affix a mark as ?cancelled? on the stamps so as to ensure that the stamps are not put into re-use. This way the revenue is also ensured. For affixing such ?cancelled? marks, post offices generally use a hammer like tool wet with ink to strike the stamps.
