This seems like a Jim Drummond question, but we'll see who gets there first. I've been getting curious about North American intaglio test/experimental stamps, particularly those produced by American Bank Note Co. Which catalog or reference do you think covers these best?

Blimey. I'd heard of print on demand, but write on demand ...

What's the estimated release date on that, Jim?

And while we're on this topic -- is this one listed from Central Bank Note Co.? The printing plate is currently on eBay for a hefty sum.

Hopefully within a year or so.

It's currently about 670 pages of worldwide test and dummy and training and demonstration stamps, labels, and booklets.

Kind of a significant undertaking, to be honest...

Yeah David Lawrence Coins listed a metric ton of printing plates a while back, many of which are extremely interesting. They want a king's ransom for them though...

Only one or two that I've seen. But great many have been pulled off since they were listed, so perhaps those were sold through another venue. They are definitely asking for moon money. I'm wondering if they are just trying to gauge demand and market value.
