Market test, Appaloosa Heritage Collection

Many of you will remember the U.S. Postal Service commemorative Appaloosa stamp, released in 1985. The ApHC produced special envelopes that were postmarked Moscow, Idaho.

Working with Precision Engraving, a local awards/trophy business, we have created a souvenir plaque as part of what we’re calling the “Appaloosa Heritage Collection.” Now we need to know if you think ApHC members would be interested in the opportunity to purchase either the envelope or the custom plaque.

The envelope by itself would be offered at $9.95. The plaque is available for $29.95. If you tell us there is a market for these one-of-a-kind keepsakes, we’ll include them on our menu of merchandise.

The text in the lower left corner reads: Yesterday the Appaloosa earned a coveted place in western history with its colorful heritage. Today the horse is proving its versatility as a champion in many arenas.

    I for one would be very interested. I do have the original stamp with the mare and foal and would love to have an envelope or two to go with it.

    I have a pin of that postage stamp. A plaque could be intriguing.

    I’ll double check, but I think it’s 8×10.

    I haven’t seen any promotion for the plaques for the Walk of Fame in many years. Maybe it is time to restart that program.

    That’s a specific museum project. I’ll pass along the suggestion.
