I got it from a postal worker! First Day Cover Issue Date: October, 24th 2001

    It looks like someone in the post office was able to backdate the cancellation stamp and created a fantasy item.

    All glory is fleeting.

    When I was a kid, I bought the Benjamin Franklin stamp (June 1, 1976 issue, I believe) that was jointly issued with Canada, and had the postmaster of a nearby town cancel it in my “Bicentennial Passport” (remember those?!). The date on his cancellation was before the stamp was issued. For years, I thought that was special.

    I really don't remember exactly when I got it but I believe it was in the fall of 2001 sometime.
