I stopped at the Penny Red, when I saw:

The rarest collection of these stamps is believed to be a plate of 77 Penny Reds


How about plate 77...

Since they show the 1c 1851 stamp, unused, I should comment on it as well.

For it, they just say, and I'm paraphrasing:

"Benjamin Franklin, 1851 - Only two Mint and around 100 used are known to still exist."

They do not qualify what variety they are talking about. This is where it gets interesting.

One would think that they mean Scott #5 7R1E, which has about 3 known unused copies and about 100 used. So that mostly agrees.

Here is the problem: the stamp that they used for the illustration is a Scott #5A, Position 9R1E. It is also a rare stamp unused, but does not agree with their text.

What a mess. Ignorance on the reader's part here is bliss.

The US pictorials are nice but not most valued or super rare.
