You can also read on to hear about a recent stamp collectors question to Gustamps.
Gustamps was posed an unusual question by Ella Newman. Ella told Gustamps she had discovered a box of old envelopes which had belonged to her mother. Gustamps heard the envelopes had been posted by Ella’s Mum during 1962. All the envelopes had different addresses and had been sent back to her. Ella told Gustamps they were all posted in America. Ella asked Gustamps if there could be any logical explanation for the batch of stamped envelopes none of which had any letters inside which could help to explain the mystery.
Gustamps asked Ella if she knew if her mother had been fan of Elvis Presley. The answer Gustamps received back from Ella was yes. The only reason Gustamps could think of was that Ella’s mother who was a fan of Elvis had posted letters to the wrong address and had the U.S.A. Post Office send them back to her. Gustamps explained that the U.S.A. Post Office would stamp the envelopes with a ‘Return to sender – address unknown’ official Post Office cachet. Gustamps said these types of envelopes were collectable by stamp collectors and Elvis fans after Elvis Presley recorded the hit song ‘Return To Sender – Address Unknown’ during the Spring of 1962.
Thanks from Gustamps to Mrs Ella Newman for the interesting question to Gustamps and letting Gustamps publish it together with Gustamps reply.
