Arizona Postal History


Here are postal cancellations from U. S. post offices in Arizona. The post offices are listed by county and may currently be active or discontinued. The cancellations are on vintage postcards, postally used envelopes, and some philatelic covers. Generally up to five cancellations are shown for a particular post office, ususally the oldest in my collection.

I am a resident of Arizona and I collect vintage postcards of Arizona. After examing the collection I noticed I had postmarks from a fairly large variety of towns in Arizona. So, in February 2013 I started acquiring additional cancellations and have created this exhibit of scans of Arizona postmarks.
