Bob:

There are two types of gum on Americana Series stamps.... shiney and dull. There are varients of each, but I shall not go into that.

There is no way to tell what type of gum was used on the stamp, once it is used. The exception is a stamp like the 12 Torch of Liberty. It was only issued with dull gum.

That all being said, the way I collect the Americana stamps (like the 9 Capitol Dome) is a used stamp, a mint--shiney gum, and a mint--dull gum.

Hope this helps.

David

Nice Medan strike! Nani lived in Medan before she moved to Canada.

Nice chatting with you on the telephone this evening. Your packet goes into the post tomorrow.
