I just found this in a small Canadian and worldwide collection I was going through. It is mint never hinged and is only fine centering. I do question some of the perforations, as some look as they may have been repunched or recut.




Does anyone have a reference for this particular stamp as it is not in Scotts regular world or Harriss catalogue. An id number and catalogue value would be appreciated.

Mike,
Google "Minuteman" savings / revenues, but maybe specialists will give better info here.

Try Sc#WS12 circa $3-$5? (Newbie us collector)

Here you go..

Listed in Scotts Specialized Catalogue as S1 War savings stamp the 10 rose you have issued November 30 1954. The 1954-57 series also included a 25 blue green, 50 ultramarine and $1 gray black.

Here's the 25 stamp



They were collected in a booklet.
Here are scans of inside pages of the book in my collection, which also includes the 1941 Postal savings stamp that Rod's page holds.



Here's the back cover of the book. For some reason I've not scanned the front of the booklet. I'll have to remedy that.

Thanks Rod, knew it was a "minuteman" savings stamp but am looking for the specifics.

Thanks James, don't have a specialized catalogue as it is not one of my main interests. Was curious about it though. Any catalogue value given?

I was actually incorrect folks. Apologies. I noted the S1 which is just the Savings Stamp. Same design, so I got confooosed.
Yours is a 1942 WS7. Colours and denominations are similar to the S1s
My 2012 Scotts Specialized lists these as .50 mint NH and .20 used.

I'll try to make amends for that faux pas (that's French, you know!).
Here's the front of that War Savings booklet.



The booklet is almost full, containing 18 1941 10 PS11s, 150 WS7s and 4 WS8 25 dk blue greens.

James I had just begun to edit my last post to ask about that 54 date "faux pas" when the stamp says 1942, but then I noticed the correction. And we all make mistakes sometimes as we rush too much to conclusions. Been there, done that. It is just being human. Thank you.

And I just corrected my own.
