Hello
Can someone please give information about a 5 cent with one unperformed side, Abraham Lincoln ,1902 issue.
l couldn't find anything about this type in Michell Catalogue . What may be the reason for this occurrence?
Is this type discribed in Scott Catalogue ?
I don't have it in my library.

Typically sheets of stamps were printed and then cut by the PO into smaller panes; it is these panes which were distributed to post offices around the country. Many of the sheets had lines on them to designate where the panes were to be cut apart. So on any given sheet, there may be stamps with either horizontal or vertical lines. These stamp will also not be perforated on that side. Hobbyists called these stamp 'straight edge' and most find them much less desirable than a fully perforated stamp. As such, the value of these 'line' or straight stamps is less than a fully perforated stamp of the same variety.

All of this type of information is in the front end of the Scott US Specialized catalog. Many people never even read any of it. Kind of like going to a salad bar and only eating lettuce. Missing so much.

Rog, maybe you missed it - the OP is from Bulgaria and I do not believe Scott is required reading there!
