8 Special Requests to Retain Handstamp

8-1 Requests to Retain a Pictorial Postmark Handstamp

A sponsor or organizer may request to retain the pictorial postmark handstamp used at its event so that it may be placed in a secure location in a museum, library, historical site, or other appropriate site. The request must be submitted in writing to the postmaster of the city where the postmark was used no later than 30 days after the date of the postmark. If the request is approved, the postmaster must deface the handstamp before returning it (see 8-2.4).
