Sunday Stamps # 146

Hello, how are you?  Good I hope.  Are you here for Sunday Stamps?  Me too!  Let's get started.

Our theme this week is bo-o-o-o-ring stamps.  Dull, everyday issues. ( I think this is by suggestion.) But, maybe they will be new to someone visiting this blog this week.

First: a stamp from the USA that we used so many times over the last 5 years to pay bills and send correspondence.  And it came in to us, many times.

You could buy this in booklets or rolls of 100 stamps.  It's still available too.  It's really too bad that a symbol of American Independence becomes boring, and essentially not noticed anymore.
Here is another one:
I have been a member of Postcrossing for a long time, exchanging many postcards, including almost 180 from the Netherlands.  Many of them have this stamp on them. It is a good stamp, but boring over time.

Come and join me, if you are not too bored by this post!  Share your everyday issues.  I hope to see a Machin or two!


Theme next week: Singers.
Theme two weeks from now: unusually shaped or oversized stamps (by suggestion)

I'm sure our opinions of what is a boring stamp will differ this week. For instance an historic object like the Liberty Bell would never be boring to me.
I will be looking out for a post from Willa as I know she lives in the Phillipines - north of Manila, Hopefully she will not have been caught up too much in typhoon.

I agree re: the Dutch stamp!

and I have also been thinking of Willa during this past week.....

I always liked the Dutch world bicycle definitive stamp although I did get a lot of them.
I hope we hear news of Willa.

It's so hard to say what's boring. I suppose familiarity breeds contempt to some extent.

Like everyone, I'm thinking of Willa.

Hi Viridian,

I've been absent again from Sunday Stamps for 2 wks in a row already I believe! I'm happy to blog hop though even if I didn't play along.

True it's hard to categorize what's a 'boring' stamp. It's interesting what were categorized as such by the players for this theme. As for me, I also won't categorize the Liberty Bell as boring. But that one from the Netherlands, I would.

Cheers from Manila,
