    This page is excellent as it shows the cancellation picture and address. I wish all states' post offices would publish their pictorial postmark address for this total eclipse event.

    Great resource! We stopped at the Wheatland WY post office and got our cancels there. I got several white envelopes cancelled with the solar eclipse stamp. But what else should I do with them? Is there a way to add a commerative design (cachet?) after it's been cancelled? I don't collect FDCs or cancels or covers and was wondering what you think.

    Hi,
    My congratulation to you for the great work done.I am an avid collector of philatelic material related to solar eclipse.This will help me and other collectors to a great deal.Only hope someday I might be able to collect all the postmarks issued to commemorate the 2017 solar eclipse.

    If interested I have a more accurate accounting on the eclipse postmarks that I could email you (8 meg file). It shows eclipse postmarks not predicted in USPS listings and also identifies postmarks predicted by USPS that never happened. Also has my personal scans of the actual postmarks (about 90 % complete so far) which, in a few cases, differs from those predicted by the USPS.

    Why are the solar eclipse postmarks still being listed when the date deadline was a week ago?

    Could you please email me the more accurate accounting and scan images of the eclipse postmarks? Thank you. I had pretty good luck for a late start. I was trying to get one from each state of totality. The only one that I didn't get a return from was Atlanta, GA
