Extending my foray into 20th century revenues, I’d been keeping an eye out for a reasonably-priced example of Scott #RVT2, the $1 trailer permit stamp. The $1 stamp is moderately scarce, valued at $650 on license. The 50-cent stamp is considerably more scarce, appearing very infrequently on the market, so I didn’t even consider that one.
So the combination of a (comparably) reasonable price and a 10% eBay coupon pushed me over the edge.
This particular example is on a license for the Grand Canyon National Park. It has a small facial scuff at lower left, but has very nice centering for the type.
Stamps were issued in booklets of five 2×5 stamp panes, so all stamps have at least one straight edge. This stamp was obviously a corner position.
