Last of my three posts from a morning with the album.
First, a newly acquired Scott #71. The color in most of my scans turned out fine, but lest you think I've discovered a new color shade, this stamp is actually orange as it should be. I know I should have scanned them on black or gray, but after I mounted them, I hated to remove them again for scanning.
Anyway, here's the Scott #77 from the same page. I'm very pleased with it. I fretted over that tiny brownish spot on the lower right 'S' but it's not spreading and I've decided I can live with it.
I still have some big holes to fill on the Civil War page, but those two will help. Below are the top/bottom halves of that album page [these scans are pretty large, so I parked them over at Flickr].
I pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. (Just in case someone forgot the words.)
