Collection of more than 455 different North Dakota postmarks, on 455 postcards, most cancelled in the late 1950's and early 1960's, including many DPO's or offices which have since changed status, and many very small towns. All 455 are listed below.

The cancellation collector self-addressed postcards with images from all over the world and sent them under cover to the various postmasters to form this collection. He almost always used commemoratives, and those stamps which were rectangular were oriented vertically -- permitting the dial portion of the cancel to be easily read. He wrote vertically at the left edge of the message side so as to leave maximum room for cancels & auxiliary marks. Occasionally he would decorate the postcard with a seal, but not many got tied. While not all postmasters took special pains with their cancels, it is obvious that many did in response to the politeness of the request. (An example letter of request will be provided with the collection, in case you want to add to the collection yourself.) Almost always regular size postcards were used (avoiding the tendency of larger continentals to get bent). Some postcards got damaged in the mails, but most of them are quite presentable. Truly a labor of love that took hundreds of hours.

We list them all--noting a few (but not all) of the items of special interest (reasons in parens). All population figures quoted in parens are from the 1950 census; we note those towns that were 100 people or less throughout the listing.

"A Merry Christmas / Amos Wilson Kaufman / Rural Letter Carrier.  Route No. 2" circa-1910 postcard with 4-stanza poem printed on the message side, addressed simply to 'Joe Wert and family'.

The carrier's name is sufficiently distinctive that only one such name is found in a Google search: this man & his wife both buried in Oakland Cemetery in Auburn Township, just outside of Tiro Ohio (Crawford County). Cinching the deal is the addressing: there are many Wert families living in Crawford County. So Amos Wilson worked out of the Tiro Post Office, most likely servicing rural people he knew in Auburn Township. $11.00 o(a)o(t)pgc-ro
