Canvasbacks by Robert Steiner


Fred's Anecdotal Note


1997 Oregon


A majestic mule deer buck rules over his forested domain below the high peaks of the Cascade Mountain range. He is momentarily distracted by a pair of canvasback ducks that are near a dark blue Oregon lake. This hand painted Milford cachet continues the "Wildlife Series" of 1996-I997


Of the 150 covers serviced for this limited edition, the one with stamp serial number 14451 was damaged and consequently destroyed. Therefore, a net number of only

149 were actually made with serial numbers 14311 through 14460. The new stamps are canceled at Portland with a black ink dater postmark.
