First my questions. Is this an easy or hard item to find? Is used considered better?
I look at lots of "philatelic stuff" most chances I get. Should my "this is interesting radar" go off, I look a bit more carefully and often buy it if I can figure what it is, or it is something I rarely or never see. Well today I spotted this goodie.
I don't really chase postcards, nor do I do much with Columbian stamp postal history nor the Exposition postal cards. I even have a commercial $1 dollar solo cover to Europe, proper rate, I am trying to off load.
What strikes me as interesting for this card, is the requirement you bring your STOCK CERTIFICATE as identification
to pick up your full run of tickets for the World's Columbian Exposition.
Can someone post a scan of the stock certificates?
This UX10 is also the same style of card used for the many Columbian picture postal cards sold and used at and away from the fair.
Normally the seller's items don't move much past the one cent open until a few hours before the items close. This however has hit about $25 in the first six hours after listing. While I have not seen one, I gather Columbian specialist have.
Listing title: "1893 COLUMBIAN WORLD'S FAIR ADVERTISIMENT ON SCOTT# UX10" (copied exactly as spelled). eBay item number: 402910346706
