Special 2024 Total Solar Eclipse Covers are Available Featuring the First RILP Pictorial Postmark

This special one-day only pictorial postmark commemorating the April 8th 2024 Total Solar Eclipse is truly a once in a life time event in Ohio. The last one to occur was in 1806 and the next one is in 2099. Also, this is the first time Rattlesnake Island Local Post has issued a special pictorial postmark. They are offered in the standard FDC envelope style and in the 4" x 6" postcard design featuring the aerial view of the island from 11-10-22. The RILP stamps are from either the 2022 or 2023 issues. The postcards will be local post franked with the correct 50 cent stamp and the envelope will have the 75 cent stamp. All RILP eclipse covers will be unaddressed, RILP stamps cancelled with the April 8th eclipse pictorial postmark, and franked with the forever USPS 2017 eclipse stamp and be cancelled in Port Clinton, Ohio with the Postmark America PC Lighthouse hand cancel. The price is $ 5.00 for either style.
