Still at the beginning of the Third Bureau Issues. I'm complete on the 1908-1910 Issues now up to this point. Now it gets harder.

Here is evidence that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I've been looking for this, let us be charitable and say "plain-looking," stamp for over two years. It is a D/A Mi 31.
It marks a collecting landmark for me. I now have a complete mint set (at least one -- not all the variations) of all the major Michel numbers for Soviet Occupied Germany, Mi 1 - 3365 and The Official series D/A Mi 1-41.
Why was this stamp so difficult to find? Although Scott references it in its catalog, it wasn't assigned a major number. It is a Scott O39, a redrawn 1954 - 56 issue on granite paper, with one difference. The watermark is 297 instead of the common 313.
With so few people actively collecting this area, I sometimes wonder how many of these are sitting in a WW collection unidentified.
Get your watermark trays out!

I've seen it all, heard it all, done it all; I just can't remember it all.

Hard to pass on one like this. Broken Hat variety with boardwalk margins, nice light cancel and $3 well spent :)

Nice buy. The cancel wasn't even evident on first examination.

Nice Margins! That isn't a tear in the lower left, is it?

Purchased a few things recently, at an estate auction and at a newly discovered stamp shop not too far from work.
Here's an interesting item. A 1918 Mozambique War Tax stamp.
There are two issues of this set. The first in 1916 was rouletted, while this later version is perforated.

Found these Papua, Lakatoi for $10. The OS 1d has FAT [d] FLAW at right value.

Wow, Jeff. That is one beautiful stamp! Beautifully centred and a nice blue cancel. Except for a couple of nipped perfs, I'd say it is nearly perfect.
The fact that it was cancelled on my birthday (98 years previously of course) only adds to its appeal!
Congratulations! big time.
