North Carolina 1996

Pintails by Rob Leslie

Fred's Anecdotal Note


In the low country of eastern North Carolina, a raccoon has wandered to the side of a meandering brook. It is fall and his coat is bushy and full in anticipation of the winter ahead. Staring at the coon from across the narrow ribbon of water is a pintail drake standing amid fallen autumn leaves. I am very pleased how the scene and colors came together in this hand-painted cachet.

A large Raleigh postmark ties the $5.00 stamp to the envelope. Serial numbers used were 4501 to 4650.
