"The cancellation looks great," he said. "So far there has been a lot of interest in it and we have already received 100 requests for it."
With more than 30 years of stamp collecting under his belt, the major is familiar with what works when it comes to stamps and cancellations.
The draw to stamp collecting for him is not money related, he said. It is a pretty inexpensive hobby that he only spends about a $100 a year on it.
"For stamp collecting you got to love it," he said. "You are not collecting to turn a profit. If you do that, you will more than likely get burnt."
The major's aviation themed collection style prevents him from getting overwhelmed by the staggering numbers of stamps and cancellations available in the world, he said.
He occasionally goes to stamp shows but often returns home empty handed, he said. Finding what he is looking for is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. He finds looking through the internet a lot more productive, he said.
The major plans on doing more cancellations in the future. He would like to do one for the Air Force Reserve as his next project. He has enjoyed using his stamp expertise to promote the Air Force, he said.
"That's why I tackled this, it was right up my alley to be able to combine two of my favorite things," he said. "I would encourage everyone that has a unique hobby, to see if there is a way to combine it with their Air Force service."
