Archive Annotations: Jimmy Cauty OCCUPATION DAY First Day Cover test envelope

Archive Annotations are a series of sporadic and incomplete anecdotes regarding past L-13 releases, oddities and rejects which are dug up from the vaults to be paraded about and subsequently DISPOSED OF via the archive section of the site shop.
Usually these are unique items, limited numbers from a long sold-out edition or unreleased experiments.
Once they are sold and their fate is sealed in a private collection these annotations will remain as reference to their existence.

In 2006 the CNPD declared 2nd May a compulsory State Holiday to commemorate of the start of the war Iraq. Stamps and prints were made – 1st, 2nd and 3rd for each year of the war and the sizes of the editions corresponded with the number of civilian deaths for each year.  So ridiculously large.

This is a test envelope to see where the stamps and address label would go and was never posted.
