I just found this- is this the one considered hard to find? I know it came in a whole bunch of formats and wasn't sure what all the types were. I could have swarn I skimmed an article just recently about it somewhere.




Thanks for your help!

You show the booklet. It is also available as a strip of plate number coils, Scott 4601a. The strip has 5 different shirts

Ok. I wasn't sure because I expected it to look like a booklet. I thought it was a pane.

STAMP MARKET TIPS

Aloha Shirt booklet is hot

by HENRY gitner and rick miller


United States — On Jan. 19, 2012, the United States Postal Service issued 32¢ Aloha Shirt stamps in five designs and two formats: panes of 20 (Scott 4592-4596) and coils (Scott 4597-4601).

On June 2, 2012, five 32¢ stamps with the same Aloha Shirt designs were issued in a booklet pane of 10 (Scott 4686b). We previously tipped this booklet pane in the Stamp Market Tips column in the Nov. 14, 2016, issue of Linn's.

Of the normally issued U.S. booklet panes in the 21st century, the 32¢ Aloha Shirts pane of 10 is the most difficult to find.

While the face value is only $3.20, the 2019 Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps and Covers values the mint booklet at $30. A mint vertical strip of five (Scott 4686a) is valued at $15. Individual mint stamps (Scott 4682-4686) are valued at $3 each.

This is a hot item. No one holds stocks of these stamps or booklet panes. Dealers are paying up to eight times face value for the booklet panes, which is remarkable for such a recent issue. Dealers pay less than that for strips and single stamps, but even those are worth buying and holding if you find them offered.

The booklet pane of 10 of the United States 32¢ Aloha Shirt stamps (Scott

4686b) is hot, with dealers offering to buy it for as much as eight times face value ($3.20). The booklet pane was issued June 2, 2012./quote]
This is from the October 7, 2019 issue of Linns
