sheetguy nice Farragut! Unless there are unseen faults, definitely worth a cert. Maybe a 90 or even a 90J on a good day. If my 311 looked this good, I wouldn't be looking for an upgrade. Rupp had a beautiful lightly hinged 311 for sale recently, but, similar to rogdcam's luck with the dark brown 303, someone beat me to it. But every cloud has a silver lining. Missing the Farragut left me with funds for the other 2nd bureaus.

Don, I like the smallest post offices write-up. . .it is difficult to find a focus area that isn't well-tread.

The areas I have been playing in; these are all areas which you can get into for cheap.

- Highway Post office covers. You can hold in your hand a cover that has only a few known to exist but only pay a few dollars for it.
- US Cut Squares. Fun, interesting, easy to display/mount in stock pages
- Christmas Seals. Colorful, nostalgic
- Tiny covers (covers less than 3.5" long). Fun, very easy to display and mount, some intriguing rate usage and aux. markings
- Miniature Views. These are tiny packs of real photo postcards. Small slices of history, interesting rate usages when mailed
- Tiny post office cover and postcards
Don

Don-It is amazing that you were able to find those tiny post office covers given the tiny volume of mail they must have processed. Remarkable.

Benjamin Franklin processed folded letter sheet, May 18, 1771. Ex-Barwis. Also, shows the split PHILA/DELPHIA two line cancel, as usual, struck across the flap(or tuck, in this case).

I received a refund from Gary Posner this AM with the following note:

Note from Gary Posner, Inc: This refund has been issued due to stamp # 337 being missing from our inventory. We are having computer difficulties with the syncing of our Hipstamp and eBay accounts which is causing us inventory problems, we are working to correct this. Our apologies.

(Click to embiggen)

So, strictly speaking, this is not yet a purchase. I hold the 50c specimen on approval, courtesy of the local Philatelic club. The 5c is a reference stamp.

I will return the 50c specimen. Two reasons: (1) it's regummed, as the perf tips look like sugar-glazed donuts; and (2) either the left or right side was reperfed.

Could not have made such conclusions without the stellar insight gathered from all of you elsewhere in this forum; the next round of beer is on me.

158e. The 1873 Continental with secret marks and the "e" means it has a grill. The Continentals usually don't have a grill. Does anyone know what grill it is? (The Scott catalog doesn't say.) I presume an H grill.

I am am expanding my collection to include more varieties, both with catalog numbers and without. This is my 1st grilled continental.
