I recently acquired this Allied Force Permit from 1950. It is a single piece of card folded in three, so it is a little awkward to show the entire document. It was issued in London to Stanley Mee for travel to Austia. It features a $4 travel permit stamp. Here, then, are 3 scans:




Here are other examples of the stamps that I have:

I love the subtleties that hot-metal presses provide - the spacing of the text, the variations in the weight and density of the printed ink; and the lack of apparent care about getting the block of text bang centre (or even square) on the page.

So often when you see 'aged' layouts mocked up for old-fashioned documents this is lost as it has been produced with modern software and the operator at the keyboard knows no different.  Lovely original stuff.
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.
