Just wanted to share my newest stamps. These came in today's mail from a trade. Never figured I'd have any of them any time soon.

One of the thrills of Stamp Collecting is finally getting something you've wanted for a long time - especially if you thought you might never get it.

My wife's first question was, "Are any of the airplanes upside down?" LOL

Or the ship!

Good pick up. Now you can work on trading those for specimens that are a little less heavily franked

That is a great feeling and I've experienced the thrill several times this year. I've wanted C1 - C6 since I started collecting 35+ years ago. I got these two earlier this year. I'm down to finding VF-XF/NH copies of C1 and C6. Finding an acceptable C1 is especially difficult since the orange ink oxidizes and turns brown.

It's one of the super rare C3s where the line itself was printed upside down.

You might want to double check perfs on the 16 Cent.

The image shows the bottom perfs lined against the sides and top. Without the stamp in hand and only an image to consider, I am hesitant to say anything definitive beyond it would be wise to double check the perfs.

I got it from a very reputable stamp dealer, APS and ASDA member.

If you want to verify, use one of the other airmail stamps you have and see how they align. If there are issues and the dealer is good, they will certainly allow you to return it.

If you do not want to verify, then mount it in your album and move on.

I'm not really sure I can return something 10 months later, based on a photoshop on an online forum.

It is in my album.
