United States/Stamps : US 192 - 204

I was just looking at my US want list, noticed I needed 192 - 204, noticed there was no space in my Liberty album for them so I looked them up in my US Specialized to see what was going on. HOLY CRAP! Does anyone of you have any of them? I was quite pleased that I just found a copy of 190 on the SOR auction, thanks Carl! ( only missing 186, 188 and 189 now! ). Why was the special printing issued without gum and why was it never used? The perfs and paper type are the same so how would a person tell a real stamp without gum from one in the previous series with the gum expertly removed or a postmark removed from a used copy of the previous series? Also what's up with 180 and 181? I'll leave them on my want list just for completion sake, but they're way out of my league!!!

re: US 192 - 204

Only the most well off of collectors would consider collecting any of these special printings. I seriously doubt that any one here has any of them. They range in price from
$8,750 to $500,000. These were not intended for postage and you would have been very lucky to find one when they were issued. Scott Specialty pages include them but I don't keep those pages in my album but in the very back of one of my B.O.B. albums. Bank notes are one of my favorite issue bu I see no point in even thinking about collecting these. If you don't have all the banknotes and proofs I'd concentrate on them

I'll keep them on my want list for fun, but only someone with more money than sense would buy something that expensive! I will on occasion spend a few hundred on a Canadian stamp I need - usually from the dealer I have been using for a long time and he usually give me a couple payments to pay for stuff like that. My Canadian collection is my most serious one and even then common sense does prevail!
