I was not going to add to my collection of US dated reds - way too many of them and my US Harris Liberty album has space for only a few. I got really lucky (?) the other day and landed a fairly large collection of them on E-Bay for a reasonable price, and here's the good part ... they had their own album pages!! It looks like I can start looking for dated reds again. But I'm still not sure about the dated greens, does anyone out there have a set of pages for them? The dated reds and greens are pretty boring but I hate to leave them out and it looks like the pages I just won will fit my two hole album. I'm still not sure if I'm doing the right thing Big Grin .

Forgive my ignorance, but what's a "dated red?"

re: US dated reds

The only thing dated I can think of is precancels. But they can be on stamps of a variety of colors.

re: US dated reds

Sorry, my bad! I put the post in the area for US BOB and figured anyone seeing it would realize they were several series of US Revenue stamps that were overprinted with different dates for each year during much of the 1940's and 1950's. There are a huge number of them since each year had quite a large series and every stamp is red. There is a similar set of green documentary stamps. Some are quite expensive and counting the reds and greens there are probably close to 1000 stamps. There are some very serious collectors of them and I'm going to attempt to join the ranks! Sorry for any confusion!!

re: US dated reds

Harvey - 20 or 30 years ago there was a substantial group of boxes of reds and greens on documents, as well as the common pinks floating around. A friend of mine with good eyesight bought several of them and pulled out double transfers, inverted dates, double dates, etc. They were good sized boxes holding a couple of thousand or more documents and were priced at $30 apiece - unpicked.

Even picked over there was a lot of value in them. I took what I wanted from them and sold them to a dealer/show sponsor in Albany. When he showed me what he was able to trade the material for I was awestruck ..... reds and greens are very popular.

Point is some of those boxes still have to be in circulation ... even if picked over two or three times there is still a lot of value - don't be picky - just buy it if you find one.
