  • Description

    SPECIAL STAMPS TO MARK THIS YEAR'S OLYMPIC GAMES HAVE BEEN ISSUED BY THE MEXICAN POST OFFICE. TRADE HAS BEEN BRISK, AND THE ISSUE OF 500,000 SETS OF STAMPS HAS BEEN EXHAUSTED IN THE RUSH BY COLLECTORS AND ATHLETES.

    BECAUSE OF THE SHORTAGE, REPORTS ARE CIRCULATING OF A BLACK MARKET IN THE SPECIAL ISSUE STAMPS.

    THE OLYMPIC VILLAGE POST OFFICE IS ALSO RECEIVING MANY LETTERS CONTAINING ENVELOPES WITH STAMPS COMMEMORATING PREVIOUS OLYMPICS. THE SENDERS WANT THESE STAMPS TO BE FRANKED WITH THE SPECIAL OLYMPIC VILLAGE POSTMARK. A MOBILE POST OFFICE WAS BROUGHT IN TO HELP RELIEVE THE PRESSURE.
