There were a number of Panama Pacifics posted in the now-locked recent purchases thread, with some comments that folks were finding the series increasingly impressive as packing atmosphere, detail, and interest into a small footprint. So perhaps there might be interest in having a thread pulling these issues together.

Here is a 400A I recently obtained, scanned on the album page at the right of the 400 I've had for a while. That completes my perf 12s.

I do know this 400A is on the lighter end of the 400A spectrum. The coloration does not appear as deep and vivid as that shown by Kirks in the thread https://www.stampcommunity.org/topi...whichpage=1&
although scanner difference is a complicating factor. In my case, the yellow of the 400 is rendered more orange by this scan, reflecting a known issue with my machine.



Anyway, I thought with the success of some other series-oriented threads that perhaps having a Pac Pac thread might be of interest if any would care to join in....

Very nice examples; this set is notoriously hard to find well-centered. Been looking for the right 404 for some months. The age-old "how much do I spend versus nicely centered."

Good topic, curious how many different shades there are out the beyond what Scott lists.

One of the dangers of this set that I have seen is someone taking a wide margin but off center example of 400A and reperfing it into a 404. A well centered example wouldn't be touched of course.

I just picked up the #400 (org yellow) a couple weeks ago. Love the color!

Have the perf 10's used. Mint ones out of range for me now.

Perhaps the one that most pleases me is the 399/403 showing the rays of the sun over Golden Gate, pre-bridge.
These really seem luminous.



I, too, need a 404 to finish the series. That is a giant beauty, Rogdcam.

I only recently started collecting this set. I'm attempting to only get NH very well centered stamps. It may take a while. Here's what I have so far. (phone photo, not a scan - sry)

I will risk running off onto a usage tangent. International machine cancel from the Model Post Office at the Exposition on a double-wide fold-out postcard published by Albetype.

One of my favorite album pages:



Added: As a general rule, I opt for centering over MNH. But for this series I made an exception. In early 2017, I decided to upgrade the set from used to MNH VF+. Over a 4 month period, I obtained PSE certified & graded copies of all except 404. After searching another 18 months for a VF+ MNH 404, I decided that I would settle for a lightly-hinged copy as long as I deemed the centering adequate. Then the 404 pictured above showed up in an auction, offered as MNH without a certificate. I bid and won it, albeit barely. It immediately went to the PF for certification ... and came back as MNH with no faults, graded 90XQ.

Wow, JLLebbert, those are some nicely centered Pan-Pacs! Are they graded? MNH? Regardless, it is a beautiful page - congrats.

I can see why that is a favorite page, JL. Very nice indeed.
Nice layout, too. What album is that?
