Pictorial Postmark Malvern Iowa Commemorative Sesquicentennial

Today’s date of June 29, 2019, includes the Pictorial Postmark Malvern Iowa Commemorative Sesquicentennial cancellation stamp. While I’m guessing most of us are not there in person, the wonderful thing about the Pictorial Postmark is we have thirty days for sending off and requesting it. 

First, I’m including this image of their official website landing page.  Secondly, check out the About Malvern, Iowa page while browsing.

Next, this is the image of them celebrating “A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME MEMENTO IN HONOR OF THE SESQUICENTENNIAL” for their Pictorial Postmark Malvern Iowa Commemorative Sesquicentennial.

Furthermore, in all of the blog posts I’m recalling writing about Pictorial Postmarks, this is one of the nicest promotion of one for an event website.

Next, in case you are new to requesting Pictorial Postmarks, the entire process is in each Pictorial Postmarks Announcement in the USPS Postal Bulletins (current one link below).

Malvern Area Betterment Association

Sesquicentennial Station


PO Box 9998

Malvern, IA 51551-9998

I’m including this partial excerpt:

“All requests must include a stamped envelope or postcard bearing at least the minimum First-Class Mail® postage. Items submitted for postmark may not include postage issued after the date of the requested postmark. Such items will be returned unserviced.

Customers wishing to obtain a postmark must affix stamps to any envelope or postcard of their choice, address the envelope or postcard to themselves or others, insert a card of postcard thickness in envelopes for sturdiness, and tuck in the flap. Place the envelope or postcard in a larger envelope and address it to: Pictorial Postmarks, followed by the Name of the Station, Address, City, State, ZIP+4® Code, as listed next to the postmark.”

Lastly, have fun considering sending off for this one!

In conclusion, join me tomorrow for my AnchoredScraps monthly blog recap. Here’s to enjoying the last weekend of June 2019!
