My expertise is in US, but I have a lot of exposure to worldwide, and with wide reference material, I will do what I can to answer questions about global stamps. In US I have extensive experience in all aspects (does include Administrative overprints for Cuba, China, Puerto Rico etc.). Also, Hawaii general issue and Revenue (pre-statehood). Of course still building knowledge but have been collecting since 1980. Air Mail is a favorite area, but not a limitation. Two specialty areas are Large Banknote issues, and Washington/Franklin identification. Strong experience in Carrier & Locals, Private Die (Also known as M&M for "Match & Medicine" but also includes some playing card and perfume stamp issues.) Recently have been building more back-of-book experience, especially around Official, Newspaper, Revenue and tax editions. Some covers, and cancellations, but not my strong suit. Another area I'm recently diving into. What I can't do: Anything non-US, as it's just not an area I focus on.

Hi Toma,  Thanks for the question.    Toma, although this can be a one of a few varieties of this stamp, all of the realistic possibilities are considered very common. Unfortunately they all have catalog

Hi Stephen,    Thanks again for the question.    Unfortunately I am not going to be much help on this one. The Scott's Specialized Catalog does not list this stamp with an "H" grill. It lists 7 different

hi Stephen,  Thanks for the question,  Stephen, I wish I could tell you you hit the jackpot, but in reality the chances are not very good. The first thing you would have to do (even before the design size)

Brad,     Spectacular.  And yes, that is a very nice 69.  I assume that's in a hingless album.  Be careful with those, they can sometimes wear out, and the stamps can get loose.    A very common habit

2016-04-23 Scott 69 with PFC:

Brad,     Ok, had a look at the stamp and the PFC site.  These two stamps are not the same... One thing you should always be weary of is when something doesn't match a description, some collectors/dealers
