re: Austria: Scott #538 -- premium for strip of three?

Glenn - The 2009 Scott catalogue only lists #538 Grayish Paper with yellowish gum @ $110.00 MNH.

There is a notation after this set that they were reissued also in 1958-9 with white paper and that the values shown above are for the First printing.

It appears like the first stamp in your strip of three has a missing corner and from your scan your stamps appear to be on white paper. ?????

So to answer your question, I have no idea what the Scott catalogue listing would be for the set issued in 1958-9 as it does not appear to be listed.

Maybe someone else has a more specialized catalogue than the regular Scott's or can shed some light on the actual stamps you are showing.

Thanks Patches for that quick response
Great eyes you have. The corner was folded.On the back it is slightly yellowed but then again it maybe "mee eyes". Perhaps in the daytime it will be alot more yellow.Was that $110 each or for all three? Wishful thinking here. Thanks Again

re: Austria: Scott #538 -- premium for strip of three?

The 1S value was not re-issued with the other values in 1958-9 (which, in the 2011 Scott are listed with "a" numbers. so The only Scott # available for this stamp is indeed #538 at $110 MNH (each). I would not assign any premium for a strip of 3.

Roy is correct! Also, it is often difficult to tell the difference between the original printings and the reissues on white paper, especially on used stamps. With this stamp at least you don't have to worry about that!
