Matched pair of 20th century double transfers
I haven’t been working on my revenue collection for a while, so it’s time to get back into things again…
U.S. Scott R249 (red numerals) and R249a (orange numerals) both with a double transfer throughout. Not incredibly rare, but considerably more scarce than the Scott catalog values imply ($62.50 vs $50 for the normal stamp).
I picked up the orange numerals example about 5 months ago and found the red numerals example on eBay 2 weeks ago. This is an area where cherrypicking is still lucrative, both online and offline.
