UNITED NATIONS SLOGAN CANCELS

Established and serving collectors since 1950.

When slogan cancels were introduced at the United Nations in New York, they were available only at the UN Post Office(UNPO). The UN Post Office is a sub-station of the Grand Central United States Post Office. It is staffed by US Postal employees and operates under US postal regulations. The UNPO uses a dater die in which the month, date, time, AM, PM and the year designation can be changed (Type A dater).

UN Postal Administration (UNPA): introduced a solid one piece dater die for the 1961 "Decade" slogan #8. For slogans #8 - 15 the UNPA and the UNPO each used their own die on the FD.

Starting with the 1965 "UNICEF" slogan #16, both the UNPA and the UNPO used a solid dater die on the First Day. The UN Post Office used its changeable dater die on the first "working" day after the philatelic first day. There are two first days for each UN New York slogan cancel starting with the "UNICEF" slogan #16. One is the FD of use by the UNPA and the other is the FD of use by the Post Office, which actually handles all United Nations mail, including items postmarked by the UNPA.

The below listed slogan cancels are on specially prepared envelopes with special slogan cachet.
