Stampfan9 - I have always loved those Semi-Official Airs. They evoke an exciting era in air travel and are simple yet beautiful. I have been tempted for many years to collect them in earnest and seeing yours gives me a push. Thank you.

Wow, loverarestamps, beautiful copy of the France 254A, the selvage is as big as the stamp itself. And here's an interesting fact relating to the stamp. The Pont du Gard, an ancient aqueduct dating back to Roman times is near the town of Nimes, which has lent its name to one of the most popular fabrics in the world today. Originally a woollen twill, but now made of cotton, the name of the material, "serge de Nimes" was shortened to denim. Here's my latest acquisition for my GB collection Lately I've started buying the occasional cover from the Queen Victoria era. This one, franked with Scott 114 was addressed to Count Bentinck, who, I learned is a member of a very old aristocratic family that dates back to the 14th century, originally from the Netherlands, but with branches in Germany (this one was sent to Gaildorf, in Wurttemberg) and the UK. In addition to counts, some members of the family carry the title of Earl of Portland. They are related to the late Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. I didn't start out deliberately collecting covers addressed to members of the aristocracy, but somehow I've acquired several, including one to a Belgian countess, one to the Earl of Lauderdale (I bought that one, my oldest British cover, dated 1771, because it has a Bishop's mark, the forerunner of the postmark) and one, a hand written letter from Prince Albert Edward, before he became King Edward VII, to Lord Rendlesham.

On the right below is a US Sc. 530 I just purchased. I thought I would juxtapose it with a 529 I have. Both are offset printing, the distinguishing separation of the P and O in "POSTAGE" for 529 vs. the 530 where the P and O merge looks as though it will show up in the optimized images, although other indicators may not.

I just picked this U.S. #113 from my favorite on-line stamp store.

The APS Certificate pegs it as genuine and used. (It has no gum.) They say "Left perfs do not align on the 12-66 Kiusalas guage, suggesting reperforated at left."





So oh well - It was just too pretty not to buy for $15!

That seems a curious phrasing "perfs do not align on the .. gauge." Maybe I am just dull this afternoon and not apprehending, but is it now a slightly different perf on the left than the right?

Or is the issue the size of perf (two perfs in the middle on left look slightly smaller to me)?
