Has anyone published a
study on Scott #190, the
overprint value? I have
noticed some "fly-
specking" with this issue.
Any one else notice it?
Any info you may have
would be very helpful to

1. Wanted Okinawa postcards
Looking for postmarked (readable dates) Okinawa
picture postcards, not Postal Stationary from 1945 to
1972. They can have a Ryukyu cancel or an APO
cancel. I need them to help date the publication dates
of various postcards used on Okinawa.
2. Wanted Grogan Photo Co Battle for
These postcards were produced by the Grogan Photo
Co. of Danville, Illinois and sold to GI’s on Okinawa
from about 1947 to 1957. Each card has a serial
number and a title on the front. I am looking for any
that are cancelled in 1946 or 47 as I am trying to
establish the earliest date they were sold on Okinawa
based on the postmark date. If they are “Free” mail
marked and have no cancel but have a written date in
the message I am also interested in those. I am looking
for the following specific serial numbers.
Some of these postcards do not say Grogan Photo on
the back but may have EKC in the stamp box.
3. Wanted Okinawa Military Club paper
scrip/chits between the late 1940's and 1972.
