> I'm sorry if any of you wanted a coin but didn't quite get your order in,
> but the coins have proven to be very popular. For those who ordered one,
> your coin will be mailed and postmarked from Ypsilanti, Michigan next
> Friday on October 2nd. That's exactly fifty years ago to the day since the
> Corvair was introduced to the public and went on sale for the first time
> at Chevy dealers everywhere.
> The coins are the 50th Anniversary commemorative issued by the Corvair
> Preservation Foundation, and will be mailed from the Ypsilanti Automotive
> Heritage Collection. That's where the CPF maintains its Corvair Museum.
> Ypsi is also the home of Chevy's Willow Run assembly plant, where most
> Corvairs were built and the rightful home of the Corvair.
> The US Postal Service will be postmarking the coin mailing boxes right at
> the Museum, using a "Pictorial Postmark" specially designed by us for the
> Corvair's 50th. Everyone is welcome to join us at the Museum on this
> historic day. As part of this USPS service, you can bring in just about
> anything you want canceled with the postmark that day, including Corvair
> brochures, magazines, fliers or even simple plain pieces of paper. I think
> the USPS draws the line at postmarking cars and body parts, though!
> Thanks again to everyone for your enthusiastic support of the 50th Coin

> their own coin for the Corvair's introduction in October 1959!
