RESOLVED - Please ignore this post.

I have been asked to catalog an inherited stamp collection, the bulk being loose and unorganized. With regard to the 32c Flag Over Porch issues, I have encountered a single stamp that I can not identify and have yet to even find a photograph of one.

Specifically, the subject of this post is a red 1995 coil stamp perforated horizontally. Any input, help and/or links would be greatly appreciated.

Additionally, I have been authorized to liquidate this collection after cataloging. In addition to circulated US issues, there are numerous mint, but sadly hinged, US issues; countless first day covers and souvenir booklets from the UN; and a small collection of Foreign issues. Could someone possibly provide some leads to potential buyers of this collection?

Thanks in advance for any and all help provided.

Don't think there were any 1995 vertical coils (horizontal perfs) of any color, red or otherwise.
Added: OK, let me try again. Assuming that you meant a red 1995 date on a Flag over Porch stamp, there are two possibilities. Scott 2913 is a horizontal (vertical perf 9.8) coil and Scott 2916 is a booklet stamp perf 10.8x9.8. Both were produced by BEP. Perhaps the 2913 is your stamp.

So, I was remiss in not uploading a photo - I knew that I was going to regret that. I took a photograph of the stamp and proceeded to crop and blow it up. Upon doing so I could just barely make out a hint of perforations on a third side. I am both embarrassed and, more than anything, disappointed. Thanks to both of you who responded. I apologize for wasting your time.
