I am in Bradenton and would like that funcitypapa group to see what I posted, along with some other stamps. Snd I am also one who would like to get over the 50 post threshold. I would ask that you all should look at my 3 stamps as I believe they all of the thin paper type. I appreciate there are limits with what you can determine by looking at a posted picture.

Hi Andy,

Thank you for your support.
I will be looking to hook up with you and group
soon as I will be in Sarasota January. PFC still pending.
Anyone heard of 70 steel blue on thin paper before?

Chipshot: thx for telling us that you are in Bradenton. So that's four of us in reasonably close proximity. I live in Tampa but also have property in Holmes Beach where I will be this coming week. My office, where I am typing this is in Sun City.

I would invite you to stop on your way or to arrange a meeting, however we are heading to N J for the holidays. On our return I look forward to meeting you. Thanks

Be cautious when posting locations and travel plans.

Wise advice Don, thanks. Even in this forum someone might try something.

Always good advice. The three of us who met on this forum subsequently have communicated extensively via email and text and then met at a neutral location to establish familiarity and trust. I never got into on line dating sites, but this is how I would have approached this as well.

Caution and going slow is always appropriate but the internet is a fact of life. I can truly say that it is highly unlikely that I would have met the other two members of our current little group without this forum, and that would have been my loss. Both seem like fine individuals, serious collectors but also with other interests.

Well to both Chipshot and Blackjack, I'll be attending the Sarasota show in February, likely on Saturday. Might be a good place to meet and say hello. Have heard it was a good show, it was the last time I went, 35 years ago! (I just got back in to collecting stamps about a year ago.)

I think that show is a great idea ( I have never been there) Graet location and no doubt fine show. My one friend say he will be the man with the hat on, but I am sure we can determine the way to meet. Thank you all,

To all living in or around Sarasota I would like to meet you at this Feb. Show or sooner if that can be arranged.

No decision yet by the PF as I was hoping to have one by
Christmas. Probably nothing until the New Year as people
are away until then. It may be fun to start a poll here as to
what others here think the stamp will turn out as 70, 70b or
70d. I don't know if this can be set up by a moderator to tally
The votes until the PF determination is made. My vote is for
——-70d light gray violet——-

Merry Christmas and I agree with your opinion on the color...... Can't wait to see how the P F comes back.

Chipshot that makes 2 votes for 70d so far.
Your used 70 with the heavy circle cancel
looks the most like mine.
Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah.

I hope some of the others will offer their thoughts and if they have a stamp from the series, I would like to see their posts for our perusal.
