Rod222, I like seeing old photo of Scott Stamp and Coin from your May 2022 post. My imagination runs to thinking potential collector youth standing in front.

Imagination is HUGE part of why I love the hobby.
I go to all sorts of places and times in the world, as I sit at my desk and stamps.

The ASDA National Stamp Show was still being held at the Armory in the 60's; I went to several. I loved it there, and it had a balcony so one could stand above and take in the whole show. Had great history there, too. Park Ave and 34th St. Alas, that building is long gone.

Yesterday, I was watching US "Pawn Stars"
A customer brought in an 1861 Washington Postage Stamp encased in a brass? coin holder.
It was appraised at circa $5000,
embossed on back "White & Co"

Fascinating stuff.
Is there anywhere I can read about these please?
Any links?

Thank you.
Not aware of how old the Pawn Stars edition,
It was appraised at Circa $5,000
I thought I heard the specialist say there were only around a thousand surviving,
anyhow Rick bought the encased stamp for $2,000

It was similar to this one
"White The Hatter "

What intrigued me was how Gault managed to die press, and crimp in a circle
the brass holder, a triumph of engineering in my opinion, adding to the fact the fragility of the stamp, and the Mica silicate shield.

These were used on War Ration Book Two:


Extremely common as everyone seems to have kept their used ration book remnants.

These fall into a curious category. Clearly not postage or revenue stamps, they were still produced by the U.S. government for an official purpose, although not containing a value. No doubt some will adamantly call them Cinderellas, and some will be equally loud to claim otherwise.
