I tend to pick up interesting items in a wide variety of items. This one I'd never seen before and since the price was right, added it to my inventory of documents. Well, as I've been sorting and sifting through things I've picked up, decided this really belonged in the Philately section of my collections. Since it's dated 8 Feb 1938, I have it in my album just before the 1938 Prexies and I find it's an interesting piece of Postal History that most would never thought of or associated to a stamp collection. Ranks right up there with my Columbian Exposition tickets.

Thought I'd share some of the Plate Numbers I've picked up that I recently scanned in. None are great rarities, but all are MNH and caught my eye. First up is Scott # 212 - Plate 574, # 230 - Plate 197, # 235 - Plate 104, # 236 - Plate 131, # 367 - Plate 4983 and # 409 - Plate 6799.

Well, it's been a while since I've posted anything here. Auctions have been good to me and the timing has been spot on. Gems abound, but there's always another in every catalogue I browse that will fill a spot or two. Yes, always one I'm a wanting. Something about that collecting bug, but it's being aware of balance. As for the balance, I won't delay any further and on to the items I have to share.

One I've been wanting for a long time has been the last of the 1869 Pictorial issues, # 122 90 Cent Abraham Lincoln. Well, I didn't get that one, bid went too high, so settled for a low-ball bid and picked up # 132 instead! Stamp is flat out gorgeous even with no gum and a PF Certificate to back it up. Basically stole this one so to speak. Across the country at another I picked up another long awaited spot once again paying only a partial of catalogue value. Scott # 505 5 Cent Error Washington in block of 9 MNH.
