hi all

my kiloware just arrived yesterday.
i have been going through the box.
i have found tons of plate numbers and other interesting items,

i hope it is ok that I post my finds.

here are two items that I found interesting

i noticed a strip of 6 # 2115's

it had [ T ] plate numbers on all stamps
my scotts did not even list a [ T ] plate number
but a plate number on all the stamps????






a second stamp that I found interesting was the wide bottom margin of a # 1395

is this common???

Nice to hear about your new family additions.

I know nothing about USA stamps but the last stamp
image looks like a booklet stamp because of the large bottom margin.

Happy Hunting and Happy Stamping. KGV

Lonedan,

What gives with Eisenhower's forehead above his left eye? Or is that a crease in the stamp. I've never seen that before.

Yes, that wide bottom margin is fairly common.

i think I found the answer to the strip of 6.
it is a 2115c.

can anyone tell me a more recent value for a 2115c...my scotts is from 2007.
and how would you value a strip of 6...

thanks

I for one, and I think others too, are enjoying your buying and searching and finding and exploring. Fascinating and educational and what will turn up next?

I have never really looked at the coils with plate numbers on them before with such interest. Or the other things you are discovering.

Thank you for sharing your story and hopefully continuing to share it.

these purchases are always interesting.
i am very curious about another stamp type now.
i am looking to find out about a 2466 "Bronx Blue"
i do not have a pnc numbered but have about 15 copies of this stamp
i will google to see what it may look like.
i know that color is hard to tell on the computer.
