    Dgn 588mt: Sc. 5080b National Parks — 5”x7” Dragon Card showing a sign similar to those that might be found at the entrance to a National Park. The sign reads “National Park Service Centennial.” Instead of icons of parks, however, there’s a familiar dragon’s head on the shield on the sign. The Mount Rainier single is tied by the B&W first-day cancel. 1 made. This single was sold by accident at Americover 2016, breaking the set, and later replaced — larger illustration (new window).
    Sold Out!

    What's the story? A well-known collector and Dragon Cards customer kept insisting that no one may use the National Park Service logo without permission of the NPS. Finally, in exasperation, I came up with the Dgn 588 design as a joke. However, three complete sets and a few singles were serviced with this design. The Mount Rainier single was sold by mistake at Americover 2016!
