Got this one in a couple of days ago. Will move the EDU back about a month on this one (Scott #489).

As an airmail collector, I don't know anything about that stamp. But I do recognize the "corner card" -- Colman was a well known Washington D.C. philatelist and dealer. I have two or three of his C1-C6 airmail covers. Nice find.

Good eye.

You might consider an email to the Scott Catalog publishers - or whomever are the current keepers of this information, so that the data doesn't get lost.

txstamp, After I get a cert. on it I'll send a copy of the cert. and cover to Scott. It'll be the 5th. new W/F EDU I've sent into them. I'll also copy Richard Frajola to up-date the Berkun-Siskin EDU data base that he maintains on his site.

Al - That's awesome.

I'm glad you referenced the Berkun census being on Richard's site, as I had completely forgotten that he was hosting it there. I see it now.

Berkun-Siskin is a really good reference for EDUs. Unfortunately Scott and Berkun aren't always in sync.
