Is the text below the 25 cent stamps correct? I see the top right corner as being "chipped".
Looks very good otherwise.

The word "chipped" is from Kenneth Tan's book and refers to the color of the color of the background does not meet at the corner. There is white space so the writer used the word chipped as if it was cut off.

Does anyone know why the redrawn 50c value (Scott 459a) is so expensive used in Scott ($57.50, same as mint)? The other redrawn issues are cheaper used than mint, as they did see a fair amount of use. Thanks, Michael

Scott is just wrong with their pricing here. This is not unusual.

Experience in collecting an area gives a much clearer perspective on relative values than printed catalogs.

Some minimum catalog value stamps are tough to find, and some high catalog stamps are very easy to find.
