    Dgn 483a

    Dgn 483a: Sc. 4824 Hanukkah 2013 — 5”x7” Dragon Card showing a photograph of my personal brass menorah. Digital Color Postmark, but unfortunately the card is too dark to see it, so only 4 were produced.

    Dgn 483c

    Dgn 483c: Sc. 4824 Hanukkah 2013 — 5”x7” Dragon Card showing a photograph of my personal brass menorah. With three earlier Hanukkah stamps — larger illustration (new window)...$4.00

    Dgn 486

    Dgn 486: Sc. 4824 Hanukkah 2013 — 5”x7” Dragon Card showing a cartoon turkey with 8 candles in its feathers. The text is headlined “A real turkey of an issue” and describes some of the problems with this stamp’s release. (This Dragon Card was a late add, so it gets a non-sequential number. I debated whether or not a sarcastic card was appropriate. Discretion lost.) First Day of Issue hand cancel — larger illustration (new window)...$2.50
