Postal Cards: Part 1: UXC, UZ (this page)

      This page lists information about all existing Air Mail Postal Cards (U.S. Scott number #UXC1-#UXC28) and Official Postal Cards (Scott #UZ2-#UZ6) which exist as cacheted First Day Covers. One feature here is the inclusion of Scott, UPSS and Minkus numbers for every issue, as of the March 2019, the only known on-line site to do so. The sources of these numbers are primarily the various 1955-2015 editions of the UPSS United States Postal Card Catalog for most of them, and the seven 1998-2004 editions of the Krause-Minkus Standard Catalog of U.S. Stamps, and the various 1983-2004 editions of Linn's US. Stamp Yearbook for the rest.

      This page is Desktop Friendly. Even if it is possible, I do not know how to make a 10 columns wide table (similar to a spreadsheet) into a mobile friendly page. The table is listed in UPSS Number order. Every UPSS Number is listed here whether it has a corresponding Scott Number or not, and for ease of use the column headers are repeated every ten UPSS Numbers.

Click on the Scott# for the page displaying all First Day Cachets I know about for that issue.


      All USPOD/USPS Postage indicia displayed on this page were cropped from scans of either cancelled First Day Covers (FDC) or other postally mailed covers. All indicia are thumbnails reduced from their actual size, and unlike almost all other displays on this site, clicking on an image does not display a larger version of that image. No larger versions of these cropped indicia images exist on this site.
