of this stamp? Once again I nearly chucked two of these in the swaps pile. See the slight difference down the bottom in the borders.



What does the P9999 mean?
Is it just a colour indicator.

Steve......

There are 6 versions of that stamp. The one with the numbers is a Plate Number Coil (PNC) It indicates the plates and colors used. Depending on condition, PNC's are the more valuable coils.

The Hebert's Catalog of plate number singles lists the "Sea Coast" coil (water activated gum) and with plate# B111 (Scott catalog # 3775 which has the 2003 date in blue and vert perf 9 3/4 ) valued as 50 cents used and $1.00 as mint! The Sea Coast stamp coil (Scott catalog # 3785 with full perf ,self adhesive) Plate# P1111 as 75 cents used and $1.00 mint, and SC#3785a 9 1/4X10 with P2222 as the same value. Not bad for a 5 cent stamp!

Maybe you'd like to collect PNC's , Triggersmob! I love the PNC's ,and it narrows it down from the whole world collecting which is better for the space I have to store my collections.

Gussy, I don't think I will actively pursue PNC's. I collect WW and have no theme type collections.
