R6101 / Scott 5740

School Bus

Cover Announcement 


This hand painted cachet captures the historic memories of school days. Shown is the oldest surving school bus in America which is the Blue Bird No. 1. Its inventor was Albert Luce, Sr., from Georgia who then spent the rest of his life making school buses.


My vintage busload of children goes down a country lane past a one-room schoolhouse. Adding to the visual impact of the cover are three of the new school bus stamps which are tied to the cover with the first day of issue bullseye postmark.


The School Bus cover is now ready. Collins #R6101 at $18.50.
