Special cancellation is organized by the postal service office in honor of a notable event or commemorative date. Special cancellation is made by a stamp produced specifically for each event. Special cancellation differs from an ordinary one in the text and the picture depicting the event or the commemorative date concerned and in absence of the integrated numerator for daily date change. Such a stamp is valid within the limited period of time, within one day, as a rule, and it is recalled from circulation.
Special cancellation is used in the world since 1862. Special cancellation dedicated to the Day of Philately was held for the first time in the USSR on August 19th, 1922. The first special cancellation of the Post-Soviet Russia dedicated to the 16th Winter Olympic Games was organized on January 10th, 1922.
The stamps, illustrated envelopes ceased already to be just a form of post payment. Stamps, envelopes, cards subjected to special cancellation are becoming philatelic rarity and of great value with the course of time.
