A recent auction post had made reference to the Tatham Stamp & Coin Company of Springfield, Massachusetts, so I thought I'd post an example of their cinderella:

Unfortunately, no. I found it during a web search about the Tatham Stamp & Coin Co. There were apparently several "denominations" in different colors made as promotional pieces. Here's an eBay listing for this one ... $4.95 is the "buy it now" price or else wait for the 26 days left to their auction.

Quite an interesting story behind that stamp company, though, as being a native of Massachusetts, it was particularly interesting. Come to think of it a number of stamp collecting facsimiles, bogus and/or counterfeit stamps originated in this area of the US, so I guess I'll have to keep a sharp lookout for such things!
