Welcome to Stamp Show Here Today episode #179. Today we are discussing the Simpsons and Precancels.

Then, because we are a stamp podcast we also delve into the precancel itself and discuss the history of precanceled stamps. Why, How, When – we cover all the bases on precancels on stamps including if one with full gum that has never been used is “Mint” or not. (16 minute marker)
