You have some great pieces, txstamp. I know it takes a long time to acquire stamps like these. The only place I see much material like this is at the major auctions.

Keep the examples coming!

rlsny - Your 97R4 appears to be plated correctly, but it is the curl in C variety and not shoulder. 97L4 has the shoulder curl. Nice stuff.

Correcto! I wrote that up too fast. Thanks.

Dudley, thanks for plating my #7. I had not discovered it was a double transfer.

Excellent topic! And, GREAT participation. Thanks to all.

I love green cancels. Here is a 10A:




Here is an 11:




Here is a 7:




I wish I had a 10c Green with a green cancel, but I do not. Alas.

Here are some 17's. Semi-decent corner margin example:




Here is a pretty eye-catching example:




Here is a strip of 4. I got it in a large lot. It is too faulty to be an individual lot, but hard-to-find, nonetheless. Here:

I wanted to show off this #11 corner margin strip of 3. I had to resize it in order to qualify for upload here. For some unknown reason, the resizing process changed the color (of this one only - some of my other uploads were also resized, but color was unchanged). The stamps are normally-colored (they are 'claret-y') in real life, and in the 'parent' JPG. Anyone know what happened? Anyway, this is the largest sheet margined copy I have. Still not as large as some of the others being shown here - they are BEAUTIFUL, btw!!!! Here's mine:

This stamp has a story. The '2 cts' in double-circle is always paired with a 'Troy & New York Steam Boat' boxed cancel. The story comes from Siegel Sale 1217, Lot 616:

"This cover is illustrated and described in detail on pp. 232-234 of Vol. II of Ashbrook's The United States One Cent Stamp of 1851-57. The "Troy & New York Steam Boat" framed marking was used on letters received at Troy from non-contract steamboats carrying mail on the Hudson River. The 2c marking indicates the amount charged by the Troy postmaster, but as recently explained by Daniel J. Ryterband (Chronicle 263), there was no official justification for assessing this fee. In late 1851 or early 1852, the practice of collecting the additional 2c was discontinued."

The cover in question realized $4250, as I recall. Mine is not a cover, just a lowly stamp. Here it is:

Just a couple more. These I bought for their eye-appeal.

First is a large-margined #15. Again, not as large as some here, but it makes me happy:




The following stamp is my avatar! I bought the following 10A as 'cancel removed'. It has such a lovely appearance (the cancel removal process didn't 'erase' any area of the design. At least as far as I can see.) and it was incredibly affordable. I normally avoid 'faulty' stamps, but I couldn't get away from this stamp:
