DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
1864 (15 May) FL franked with Spanish West Indies adhesive 1 rp blue on salmon, tied by "Puerto Plata" cds, with corresponding pmk alongside, addressed to the capitol, Santo Domingo, with oval arrival pmk on back. The Spanish post office in the Dominican Republic (which gained its independence in 1865), began using the stamps of the Spanish West Indies (as used in Cuba, Philippines and Puerto Rico) in 1861. Only one used example of 1rp value of the 1857 (Queen facing right) is known, plus this 1861-64 (and reportedly two others) cover. In prospective, other European Countries' Post Offices used Abroad, while not common, are often found in collections and archives. This usage of a Spanish Colony stamp used from the Post Office Abroad in the Dominican Republic, ranks as a great rarity

1912 (May 10) Winnipeg, Manitoba Air Circus. An "Air Circus" was held in Winnipeg for an entire week. On May 10, it was expected that one of the pilots, Thomas McGoey would fly mail in his machine, with the authority of the postmaster. A picture postcard, the only item now known to exist is franked with 1c green, tied by Winnipeg, May 10, 1912 (9:30 a.m.) cds, bears a personal note "Dear Mother, Come take a trip with me", carries a three line "From Winnipeg by First Aerial Route Thomas McGoey, Aviator" cachet, addressed to Grand View Post Office, Brandford, Ont, with May 14 arrival pmk, creased at lower left and expertly restored, fine. It is not known whether this mail was carried by Sam Tickell on his attempt on 10th May, or whether it was dispatched via ordinary means upon the failure of McGoey to arrive. Being the only known item from this flight, this card is considered to be the greatest rarity of Canadian Aero philately
