Pintails by Neal Anderson
Fred's Anecdotal Note
This year's First Day Cover features a first for MILFORD with the hand painting of a portion of the pictorial postmark. The beautiful large cancel pays tribute to the state bird and my decision to paint it brightens the entire FDC and will add much interest as an unusual cachet-making technique.
A second meadowlark sings his morning serenade in my
watercolored cachet, and, in fact, appears to be in concert with the bird in the postmark. A solitary pintail bears witness to this new and glorious Nebraska morning.
Stamp serial numbers used were 7201 through 7410.
