Greetings Mr. Bear . Thank you. Even though the two stamps that I posted an image of are not true Sock on the Nose, I figured they fit in with most of the others that were labeled as such. (A true SON canx is centered on a stamp within a whisker or two -- not if most of the canx happens to hit the stamp.) I also posted them 'cause they come from almost obscure nooks on the globe. . Respectfully,

Greetings Mr. Butterflies . That's an excellent example of a SON. . Also, thank you for posting the URL. It is eye-opening, especially looking at the homes and school links. A lot of forget about when there was a time without indoor plumbing, electricity, and (heaven forbid) air-conditioning. I, for one, remember growing up without those. I remember the day we got wired. The first thing we bought, besides lamps, was a refrigerator. We take so much for granted nowadays. . Respectfully,
Briefzentrum "66" is located in the German City of Saarbrucken, in the region of Saarbrucken. The mail processing centre is classified as large which means it processes between one and half to two and a quarter million pieces of mail a day. It has operated since 1996.

Here is one with a long name and a postmark that needs to be on a block to be centered and legible. Polasanipalle is a village of about 4,000 in southeast India. It would be really neat to find a postmark from the nearby village of Venkatadriapparaopuram.

Here is a tough one.
I don't know Japanese, so I can't figure out what the top part says. Maybe it is not a place name? Also, SON Japanese stamps are hard to find. Possibly they have a rule that says all postmarks must be tied to the paper, because half-on marks are very common. This one is cute because the date is 911. The actual date of the postmark (I think - please correct me if I'm wrong) is January 1, 1920 (ninth year of the Taisho period)

November 9, 1892, Uden, Netherlands, a town of about 40,000 people.
Wiki says -- In 1795 Uden was taken by French troops and incorporated into the Dutch republic and has been a part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands since 1810. From then on Uden’s wealth diminished mainly due to competition from the neighbouring Brabant villages, resulting in emigration to Wisconsin and other parts of the United States.
