Hi

I need help with Scott C81a, the 21c airmail untagged variety.

I was processing a small lot of insured covers I bought in a recent eBay auction. For some reason, I brought out my UV lamp and checked it for the tagging. Scott lists the variety at $10.00 for an unused single (compared to 40c for the tagged variety), but doesn't price used copies.

My C81a is a PB on a insured cover, paying the 2 ounce rate (13c plus 11c) and insurance from $15.01-$50.00 (60c), for a total of 84c (PB = 4 x 21c). These rates existed in the early 70s for about 5 years.

My questions are:
does Scott price this as used in more recent editions?
Does Durland show pricing for a PB (especially used)? [I have an earlier Durland, but it doesn't acknowledge C81a, only C81]

I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

David,

2008 Scott Specialized shows C81a at $10.00 for mint single and nothing for a used copy.

My 1990 Durland does not list C81a.

re: Help with a US airmail variety

David,
dont have current catalog,but my 99 has C81 used at .15, and no used price for C81a,,but followed is set value- under used column, .45. I believe this indicates the set as one C81 and one C81a.
a C81 mint block is priced about4 1/2 times a single (.35/1.65) So would assume same ratio for C81a-- 6.00 mint single- 27.00 PB. Useing Scott thinking.
Scotts has indicated it will be adding more detail info on many of the U.S. issues ,in the upcoming 2010 specialized.
good luck.
