Scott #WS3 [1917 5 dollars green Washington; War Savings, Rouletted] Mint, no gum (as usual), with Just-Fine centering. Has faint crease only visible on the reverse with oblique lighting; it may be pre-printing (the paper used for this issue was of lower quality than normal stamp paper). Wonderfully fresh example with deep color and crisp engraving impression. An extremely scarce stamp missing from almost all collections. Very scarce with gum; virtually all uncanceled examples are without gum. (Scott 2022 $1200 with gum, but without gum as this example is $475.)

Scott #WS4 [July 1919 5 dollars blue Franklin; War Savings] Mint, moderately hinged, with Superb centering. A wonderful example with brilliant color, perfect centering, perfect perforations, and perfect gum (but hinged). Faint, inconsequential, natural gum bend mentioned only for complete accuracy. It is hard to imagine finding a nicer example of this very scarce stamp that is missing (in any quality) from virtually all collections. (Scott 2022 $325 for normal Scott quality; this is a superior example.)

Scott #PS15 [1941 $5 brown Postal Savings, Minute Man]. Wide-top PLATE NUMBER F22737 example. Mint, lightly hinged, with VF centering, but with moderate crease. The diagonal crease appears to be a "natural" paper stress crease that is often seen on larger-size stamps of this era, but it is a crease just the same. Remarkably fresh with great color, perfect perforations, and perfect gum (lightly hinged). Despite a relatively modest catalog value for such a high denomination stamp, this is often quite hard to find and is missing from most collections. Plate number examples are scarce. (Scott 2022 $42.50 for NH VF; this is not NH and it does have the crease, but the plate number largely makes up for it.)

While certainly not a "scarce" stamp according to the catalog value, it is surprisingly hard to find with nice centering and perforations. Superb singles are "scarce"; multiples much more so because of a slight difference in the perforation spacing vs design spacing over distance.

Scott #2122 [1985 $10.75 Eagle and Moon, Express Mail] April 29 1985 First Day Cover with Fleetwood cachet. VF stamp, but with slight crease (only visible at a certain angle; was this way before being applied to the cover). Otherwise very fresh and attractive. With very clear USPS FD cancellation, but is a postmark version only applied to covers from some of the cachet makers: The "1985" is much larger than the rest of the date and in the "94188" zip code, the "1" is taller and the "88" are quite irregularly shaped. I do not know if the Fleetwood cachet exists with other cancellation types. Unaddressed. This cachet is one of the more "in demand" FDCs for #1909. (Scott 2022 $50; dealers list $50-60 for this cachet.)

Scott #U350 [1893 5c Columbian Exposition] Envelope cut square, Mint VF. Light chocolate brown color on yellowish-white diagonally laid paper. Extremely blurry impression -- quite unusual compared to the very clear impressions I usually see. There is a clear meridian line behind the Columbus head, but I cannot determine if there is a period after CENTS, thus either Die A=1 or C=3. Interesting variety.

New Jersey Hunting / Fishing Stamps 1966-1983 Collection: Collection of New Jersey Hunting and Fishing Stamps for Trout (resident and non-resident issues), Woodcock, and Pheasant and Quail. An extremely unusual group in 4-blocks, with two issues in sheets of 10. All NH VF. All perforated unless stated. 1967 Trout, Resident and Non-Resident, in sheets of 10. ALL THE REST IN 4-BLOCKS with side margins where such exists: 1966 Trout R and NR. 1967 Woodcock. 1968 Woodcock, Trout R and NR. 1969 Woodcock, Trout R and NR. 1970 Woodcock. 1972 Trout R and NR. 1973 Woodcock. 1978 Pheasant/Quail, Trout R and NR (all rouletted). 1979 Woodcock. 1982 Pheasant/Quail, Trout R and NR (all rouletted). 1983 Woodcock (rouletted). All are listed and priced in "The Streamside Catalogue of Fish and Game Stamps" 2006 edition edited by Jan R. Wooton. The catalog prices are for Hinged stamps prior to 1976 and NH after -- I have applied the listed prices for everything even though the pre-1976 items are NH and thus should be higher. I have just applied the singles values times the number of stamps in the blocks. The individual catalog values seem quite reasonable, but they do add up. Also included are two nice accent items: metered mail envelopes from the NJ Division of Fish and Game from 1973 and 1988, as well as a 1983 booklet back cover. The total catalog value per Wooton is $1028! The 1960s items are scarce, but the others all add up quickly as well. [The website shows just a couple sample images.] [FREE SHIPPING on this item for mailing in the U.S.] Shipping cost is additional for this item.

Confederate Facsimiles: Group of 7 "mint" (Scott #1-5, 8, 10). Sometimes described as reprints, these are facsimiles made for collectors (I believe that these date from the 1950s), but they are still quite actively collectible. This group is different than those I have previously had. On the backside all have text in black on the back; five have "FACSIMILE" all caps in small type; #3 has "FACSIMILE" INVERTED, in all caps, much larger type; and #10 has "Facsimile" in mixed case, small type. All are "VF" with full margins; #1 has a small toned spot and #10 has a small thin on the back text.

Facsimile (forgery) of Scott #11X4 [1846 5c black on grayish lilac paper St. Louis Bears Postmaster Provisional] Mint VF appearance, with gum, but with crease (probably present before printing). These were created, probably in the 1940s or 1950s, to allow collectors of modest budget to have something resembling St. Louis Bears stamps in their collection; they probably originally sold for between 10 and 25 cents each. Today they are fun Cinderella items that are avidly collected.

United States Military Academy, West Point, privately prepared philatelic commemoration page featuring the poem "The Corps" and 12 U.S. mint stamps in clear mounts. The stamps include the 1937 West Point stamp and 11 stamps picturing a total of 15 West Point graduates. Very attractively presented 8.5 x 11 inch gray page with gold-imprinted West Point emblem at top. While the mint stamps are of minimal financial value, it this would be a terrific item for a West Point graduate, whether for yourself or as a gift.

North Carolina #SD 9 [1969 25c Soft Drinks Tax] Imperforate red on white decal on original backing of light yellow card stock imperforate horizontally with rouletting vertically. 25c denomination in black. According to the 2013 "The State Revenue Catalog", "Decals were used mostly on syrups and unmixed powders, often affixed to tags attached to syrup canisters." Though I have lived in North Carolina since 1989, and Bonnie and I collect such items from North Carolina, I had never before actually seen a single example of any of the denominations of these decals until I found five examples of this item, only two of which were in perfect condition. They seem to be very scarce. NH VF in perfect condition.

Scott #RW20 [1953 $2 deep rose brown Blue-winged Teal] Used Fine on reverse of "VIRGINIA COUNTY RESIDENT License To Hunt and Fish -- $1.00". Though the license has the usual "wallet creases", the duck stamp has not been creased! Virginia did not start using actual waterfowl hunting stamps until 1988; this license is the equivalent of a State stamp. (Virginia did have "bear and deer" hunting stamps this early.) While this Federal duck stamp is not scarce (Scott 2021 $15 for Used), it is quite hard to them on intact licenses in decent quality.

Wooten (2006) VIRGINIA Big Game (Bear and Deer) Hunting Stamp #31 [1953-54 $1 black on blue "Bear and Deer" Resident (pictures deer)] Used VF, with red serial number, on reverse of "VIRGINIA STATE RESIDENT LICENSE TO HUNT ONLY -- $3.50" for 1953-1954. Not being familiar with the Virginia system, I do not know why the license was $3.50 but the stamp only $1.00; I assume both amounts had to be paid. Though the license has the usual "wallet creases", the hunting stamp has only very minor creasing (since unfolded) of the perfs at top and left! The 2006 Wooten catalog prices this stamp Mint at $30 and Used at $12, but makes no effort to price uses on license (though the author notes in the 2006 introduction that collecting on license has "grown in popularity"). A very attractive, pictorial stamp design which greatly helps the marketability, thus the value. A very nice and very scarce-on-license item from the era well before the "philatelicization" of hunting stamps.

On reverse, red LONDON transit postmark and very clear FUNCHAL 19 July 1881 receiving postmark. A very attractive example of this card, sent to an exotic destination. While Funchal was a significant sized city for the time, mail from the U.S. to Funchal is extremely unusual, especially this early. The Scott 2021 value of $25 is for the most common overseas destination such as England or Germany; exotic destinations command much higher values.

Ephemera / Cartoon Art: May 12, 1940 amateur hand-drawn cartoon strip "The Fumps" by "Benny". Found in a stamp collection -- it is too precious to ignore. This just demonstrates that very little is new in politics, conspiracy theories, or fools. The story: Person answers door and welcomes in guests. The conversation proceeds: "How dja [sic] like Roosevelt? ... Speaking of Roosevelt, too bad McKinley was taken sick and died. ... He was shot... No! ... Listen here, you dummox, McKinley was a victim of cancer... Big bum, you, McKinley is still alive. He was impeached... No!... No!... [fight ensues] ... Resident sits in wrecked living room. (Seems much like 2016-2021!) I am not sure why in 1940 they were arguing about the 1901 assassination of McKinley by a gunman. However, it just shows that nothing is really new and perhaps that we have another 40 years ahead of us arguing about recent events. Overall size 11 x 8.25 inches.

Ephemera / Art: ca. 1940 amateur hand-drawn, colored automobile illustrations. Found in a stamp collection and too fun to ignore. Probably by "Benny" the creator of a 1940 cartoon strip "The Fumps" found in the same stamp collection. Each is on thin, tracing paper (or clothes pattern making paper). Pen outline, colored in. Similar, but different car designs. Interestingly the creator paid attention to developing surrounding scenery: desert, rural, city. Lots of fun. Especially for a car lover who has one or more ca.1940 cars like these. Some insignificant edge wear. Each overall size 11 x 8.5 inches.

ESSAY (REVENUE USE) 2 cent Bank Check: Henry Lowenberg Decalcomania essay, Turner #42b dark green (Scott does not list the essays for revenue stamps). [ca. 1865-1866 Henry Lowenberg essay; (Lowenberg Stamp [printing] Company. The design, which includes the text "U.S. Internal Revenue", was created by Lowenberg and printed in reverse on the back of extremely thin onionskin paper. Based on two patents: gum and then print, and print and then gum, but Scott states that the difference cannot be determined without destroying the essay -- which is the whole point of this type of essay to eliminate re-use of stamps.] Mint NH Fine perforated single. Variable perforations as usual and with some relatively minor flaking causing design loss in a couple spots. (This example seems to show that the printing was on top of the gum; however, the gum was thick and irregular on this example, causing the ink to not fully adhere to the gum.) From time to time, a few examples can be found in the market in the $35 range.

Group of about 130 VERMONT picture post cards, plus about 20 miniature view cards. Mostly 1906-1919, an original trove from a family archive -- these have never been in a dealer stock. The cards either picture Vermont views/subjects and/or are postmarked in Vermont -- thus these could be useful for multiple types of Vermont collections. Mixed mint and used, with quality generally very nice. Includes quite a few early real photo cards, one leather Vermont card, some local town views, a number of working granite quarries, etc. Quite a few of these cards would retail in the $3 to $6 range, with a few even higher. This would be a great way to start or expand a Vermont picture post card or Vermont postal history / postmark collection. A super deal that would be terrific for a collector or a dealer!

1893 Columbian Exposition picture postal card: "Womans Building" of series published by Girsch and Roehsler. Mint Fine with some bends and creases. Printed on U.S. postal card Scott #UX10 for which normal mint lists in 2020 at $47.50 each. This series seems to be fairly scarce; I have never seen an illustration of a complete set, nor do I know how many cards constitute a set. The Chicago Postcard Museum site only pictures one card from the series (a different one). At this moment, I do not see ANY cards of this series offered on eBay, which is a reasonable reflection of scarcity. Despite the quality problems, this is a desirable card. Genuine original card.

Confederate Facsimiles: Group of 14 "mint". Sometimes described as reprints, these are facsimiles made for collectors (I believe that these date from the 1950s). On the back each bears the text "Facsimile / No. XX" (numbered 1 to 14). While these initially look Imperforate, they are die cut but just held together in a block by tiny breaks in the cutting. The 12-block is intact, but weak due to the very tiny connectors. The pair was originally attached somewhere along the bottom of the 12-block. Ungummed on yellowish-white paper. All of consistent printing quality and appearance on thick white paper. All excellent quality with full margins. These are quite collectible. I have never before seen this type with die-cutting and the tiny connectors (breaks in the die cutting).

Germany: FORGERY OF A FORGERY: Forgery imperforate souvenir sheet of four of U.S. OSS "Operation Cornflakes" Postal Forgery of orange-red 12 pf Hitler Head stamp with the text "FUTSCHES REICH" (ruined empire) and the jaw partly exposed showing the teeth. The original postal forgeries were created ca.1942-1943 by the U.S. OSS (Office of Special Operations; precurssor to the CIA) in the design as shown on this item, but with perforations and printed in large sheets. The original postal forgery is listed in Michel as #17 of such postal forgeries -- it is costly and sought after. Text from the Henry Gitner hgitner.com website: "These stamps were key part of a high level clandestine plan to undermine the morale of the average German citizen. The Allies felt that if many German people started receiving Anti-Nazi propaganda in their morning mail delivered punctually at breakfast time by the mailman, they would feel that their "German Empire" was falling apart from within... The OSS decided that the best way to smuggle the mail into the regular German postal system was to bomb mail trains. In addition to bombs to possibly destroying the trains, they dropped sacks of mail containing Anti-Nazi propaganda. During the confusion of cleaning up the wreck, the false mail sacks were mixed with the damaged German mail. The OSS re-created all aspects of the German Postal system from real business return addresses to many thousands of names and addresses pulled from the telephone directories. They even replicated the mail bags, postal markings and every other detail of the postal system. Every letter was franked with a 12pf stamp or two 6pf stamps. On opening the letter, they would find it filled with anti-Nazi propaganda including the 12pf "Futsches Reich" stamp." This, however, is a later -- I am guessing from the 1960s or perhaps the early 1970s; it is not a more recent reproduction which also may exist -- imperforate, gummed, souvenir sheet of four stamps reproduction / forgery of the original postal forgery. Over the years, I have seen dealers successfully selling this for around $20. NH VF souvenir sheet of 4; small natural paper inclusion far out in the margin away from the stamps. CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO COUNTRIES WHERE SUCH ITEMS ARE PROHIBITED.

Label: "ROANOKE, VA. / AN ALL-AMERICA CITY / THE STAR CITY OF THE SOUTH". Lithographed, rouletted label design (view of the city with mountains in the distance) with printer inscription "AMERICAN BANK NOTE COMPANY, LITHO." Very attractive. The city was first named an All-America City in 1952 and six times subsequently. The huge star on a nearby mount was built in 1949 (it has an interesting history, see Wikipedia). This has the appearance of having been issued in the 1952-1965 time period. NH F-VF.

Scott #11/12 facsimile "mint". Sometimes described as reprints, these are facsimiles made for collectors (I believe that these date from the 1950s), but they are still quite collectible. Back printing "Facsimile / No. xxx" with 211 in blue gray. On coarse yellowish paper. I do not know for sure, but I suspect that the various backprinting versions of these exist; compare to what you have.
