Here's something you don't see everyday in this discussion area. I'm going to do a little educating and then ask for help in identifying something.

So some of the latest stamps to come out of the USPS are these little guys called “The Four Flags”.

So, in my attempt to keep my 2012 collection up to date, I went and bought 2 booklets at my local post office.

While figuring out pricing to see what the extra ones I have would be worth online, I found out on eBay that there are actually five versions of each of these stamps! There are three different printers for the coil version, and two different printers for the booklets, meaning that there will be 5 different Scott numbers for each stamp. I went and purchased a set of each from one of my favorite and very trust worthy dealers on eBay and right now, I’d like to focus on just the booklet types. I’ll do a follow-up message showing the coils a little later.

So the next scan is rather large, but it had to be so that you could see the microprint USPS on each example as well as my booklet block. I think I already know what I have, but I figured I’d let you guys have some fun with it as well.

Since I had the scanner and my high-tech JPG editor (MS Paint) fired up, i figured I'd take care of the coil piece of my educational post as well. Here you go.

Thanks Pat.

Some time ago, I also created this "identifier" spreadsheet on a Google Doc for anyone to use. Just search/filter by the feature in question.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VytCWEdoYT36RknAS9Od7A7t_mJSsdHlAbRPrZpehRE/edit?usp=sharing

I have a couple other such definitive series identifiers in that same folder (linked here): https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B7MICy7TcHWJWGR1NEh3Wlpxc3c

I believe there are 7 varieties of each. That's why plate numbers come in handy!

Ashton Potter did one of the booklets and the ATM pane as well, both those stamps are quite different from each other

re: Identification help 2012 flag forever stamps

hello Lars! love those images and album pages. Could you tell which album pages you are using (I recognize the White Ace .. but am wondering which set of pages these are)? I have the recent flag issues stored in a stock book and would love to transfer into nice looking album pages. Thanks!
