Precancels are postage stamps that have been canceled before being used on letters or packages. Typically they are stamps cancelled with two lines, and the city and state where they were mailed. There are many ways you can collect them, and most of them are very affordabible. Above all, the best part of collecting precancels are the other great collectors you’ll meet along the way.
