This stamp is not official US Postal issue, but it ought to be. Produced by Society member Otto David Sherman, these stamps won’t pay for your mail to be delivered, but they will allow you to declare to the world your Menckenophilia.
We can’t claim that these stamps will appreciate in value as have the “Inverted Jenny” or the “Benjamin Franklin Z-Grill“, but one can never tell.
Indulge your timbromania. Get this stamp by joining or renewing your membership in The Mencken Society. Renewing members of the Society will receive a strip of five (5) stamps and new members will receive two strips (10 stamps).
Come to the Mencken Day celebration at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, September 8, 2012, and be one of the first to get these (non-USPS) issues.
The Mencken Society is happy to offer its members official Mencken Society T-shirts. These shirts will be for sale at the Mencken Day Celebration, September 8, 2012, at the Enoch Pratt Free Library.
The front of the shirt shows the Society’s logo and the back a quote particularly apt during Presidential Campaign season: “No one in this world, so far as I know … has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people.”
We offer these shirts, normally $20, at the special Mencken Day price of $15 (price includes Maryland sales tax). All proceeds go to the Enoch Pratt Library for the Mencken Room. Please note that at this time we can only accept cash or checks.
