Did anyone use a checklist or just the catalog? I've been playing with AlbumGen software and am looking for a trial project to frame as well.

Nice collections. I soon hope to complete mine after being away from it for so long.

I am searching through the forums looking to get all info I can about this series and the transportation series.

Looking forward to the fun and the hunt!

Just noticed that Jackie has 4 Alice Paul stamps in his/her collection. Scott only lists 3 varieties. Is anyone aware of a 4th variety?

While we are on the subject, I have a very outdated edition of "The Great Americans" detailed list by Stephen G Esrati. It's the 18th edition. 12/21/2000.
Does anyone know if there is a later edition and where I might purchase it?

The Stamp Smarter website (http://www.stampsmarter.com/1847usa...tifier.html) has a nice set of summary tables. It also lists Esrati's book and USSS Jan-Dec 2006 series in its bibliography. Unfortunately it appears that Mr. Esrati has shuffled off this mortal coil (https://esrati.com/obituary-stephen...a-dad/13069) so the contact info in the bibliography is likely stale. Perhaps you could contact the USSS (http://www.usstamps.org/) to see if/how you can get copies of the series of articles.

I believe that the USSS Jan-Dec 2006 series of articles can be accessed, if you are a member, from their "Digital Specialist" archives.
http://www.usstamps.org/digital-spe...st-archives/

Given Angore's data-point regarding last edition date (2002), I would think that the series (2006) would be the latest-greatest information available.

Scott currently recognizes 3 shades of 2943. The main 2493 seems to be fairly consistent, but the 2943a and 2943b seem to have some variation.


.

Two 2943b on top, two 2943a on bottom.

The latest edition of Mr. Esrati's "The Great Americans" that I am aware of is the 25th Revision of April 10, 2006.

Do you know where I could get that 25th edition? I have looked and even on usss I don't see it. Would someone be willing to sell me a copy? If I am not supposed to ask that here please forgive me. I know I don't have 50 posts yet, but I sure have a lot of enthusiasm for this series
