Here are a few entires. Any input is greatly appreciated. We have been reading posts and most seem to be on cut squares. Our specialized catalog is on pre-order. I've read it is not the best source. As a new member I could not email wt1 or ThomasGalloway as it seems they are experts in this field, not to exclude others. We have many more entires and cut squares along with stationairy covers. As with stamps, these are very hard for a novice to sort and Label correctly in albums especially without knowing what book or books to reference.






Thanks

Reddye, you should be on the right track. Thomas Galloway is THE man to go to, and the Scott Specialized should be good for IDing most varieties of US stationery.

The US Postal Stationery Society has a catalog with more detail than you could believe about covers.

I use the following to identify the type but haven't found any good source for pricing.

Looks like a U189 and a U420a surcharged which would make it a U495a...I think.

My take on answering OP's request for identification:

10c Brown (Die 65) on Blue - U192

Type 8 Surcharge on 1c Green (Die 130) on Blue - U498
