In yesterday's Los Angeles Times' movie section, I couldn't help notice an advertisment for a new film called The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio. What caught my eye was the stamp and cancellation (shown above) that was part of the ad.

Any U.S. collector worth his or her tongs would immediately recognize the stamp as an altered version of Scott #1091. Issued for the International Naval Review and the Jamestown Festival, the festival's seal which was used on the actual stamp has been replaced with '1956.'

I don't mind a bit of artistic license, but come on now.... the stamp wasn't issued until 1957.
