The first is a mint, never hinged block of nine with great color.


Next is a rather large margin example of Scott 65 with a beautiful fancy cancel.




Here's a nice Scott 66P2, Roosevelt Album proof


Next, a nicely centered Scott 117 with a bold red cancel


Last, but by no means least is this large margin Scott 158




Hope you enjoyed the eye candy!

It is very hard to tell from a scan, but the upper right corner of the block looks like it may have some gum bleed-through on the perfs, suggesting it is not NH.

I think my favorite is the 117.

Winston, the block is from the top 3 rows, I think? Looks like the repaired relief flaws from the A relief? Not really good with the 3c issue here, but was wondering.. Ray

Stampman, I was wondering if you have a cert for your 66P2. Only asking because my 65P4 is darker than yours, and I have a certed 66, below. Wondering if your proof is possibly 65P2 instead?

Your proof looks too light and rosy, at least to me, to be lake.
Hope this helps, Ray

Ray, that is correct. I am particularly interested in this block, however.

I am hoping the OP can post high res images of the top three. Even better would be to email me a high res scan (1200 dpi) of the entire block.

I am one of those people who over-caution about comparing scans made on different non-NIST-traceable scanners.

If both of you scanned the front of a new box of Post Fruity Pebbles with Bedrock Berry Pink (or any other common pinkish thing with commercial quality color control) ...

Cheers,

Ray,

I thought at first this might a 65P2, so I had Jim Lee look at it. He confirmed it as a 66P2. According the him, there are only a handful (3-5) known and he knows where they all are....

I know, I was hoping....

Thanks for asking.
Greg

The block of nine #26 is 4-26L15. I was hoping for something else...
