80. Pre-first-day cancels: These used to be the exception rather than the rule and occurred only when a postal clerk didn't notice the release date. It now is common for stamps to be used before their first day, Linn's periodically publishes an updated list of current issues and invites readers to find the earliest usages. Unless one finds the earliest pre-FDC date, the values are minor.


Type 80: This cover shows a prerelease of the 7¢ airmail stamp (Scott C51). The cover is postmarked July 29, 1958. The stamp's first day of issue was July 31, 1958.
