I recently bought a partial roll of Scott TD37, the perf. 10 vert. test stamps from the Multipost Company.

Not even my psychiatrist understands what I'm going to do with all of these particular stamps, let alone me.

Until I (we) figure it out though, I'd be glad to send you an unused (i.e. no gum) pair, for free. Well, it'll cost you the price of two envelopes and two postage stamps.

How it works:

Click on my name, at the left.

<----

Click on "Send an Email," and I'll in turn send you my address.



Then mail me a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope inside of an envelope addressed to me, and I'll send you back a pair of TD37 (current Scott catalog value $10).

This offer can be canceled at any time, but I do have several pairs available at the moment.

Limit: one pair per person. This offer is only for people in the U. S., sorry.

(You might get more than a pair back).

Jim

Really?

For only $1.10 in postage costs no one else wants to get a pair (or more) of some U.S. test stamps valued by Scott at $10 or more?

Fine, I guess it's to the 'bay that they go...

Jim

That's too bad. Happy to add them to my very(very) small collection (3)of test stamps.

Didn't look at the catalog before replying to your offer.
Just looked at my old Scott 2010 Specialized and TD37 is listed at $50 the pair.
Maybe they've gone down in more recent books.

Found others, but not this one on net searches.
Thanks again,
Pat

Hold the boat! I just saw this and would like to get a pair. I will connect with you via email.

Just curious -- did these have line pairs? (I'm not asking for one, just wondered).

This offer has been upgraded to be a strip of four stamps, instead of a pair, maybe with original gum, maybe without.

Maybe I'll stick an official seal on your envelope before I mail it, you'll never know. Maybe you'll get some cancelled Christmas Seals, also who knows.

Just take a chance!

Jim

I swear I will send my SASE tomorrow. It has rained every day and I don't want to walk to the mailbox to out the letter in it. I send the kids to get the mail.

I received mine in yesterday's mail. Thank you, Jim! A nice little addition to my collection. I haven't dug out my Scott catalog yet to check...when were these made/issued?

Jim,

Thanks! Never even knew about US test stamps and have to start a new sub-collection. Awesome!

BTW, I like your trick with the post-it note. Always hated scotch tape.

Geoffrey
