Finally did it! I wanted to include the last American Bank Note Company printing of definitives in a web page, but I didn't have #224, the six-cent value picturing President Garfield. After scouring the internet for an hour, I finally found an attractive used copy on the Stamps2Go web site. Here's the complete set, including the 2-cent lake and the 2-cent "cap on left '2'" and "caps on both 2's'" varieties:

And here's a closer look at the "caps" varieties:

I wanted to include the image of this set in my newly revised web page, Memories of Silver City, because the four-cent Lincoln stamp was used to upfrank the postal stationery envelope that is the basis of the web page.

There is something that is quite satisfying about completing a set of stamps, especially when that last stamp meets the criteria you started with, which in this case was reasonably well-centred stamps with reasonably attractive cancellations.

I'm working on an additional web page, about the 4-cent Lincoln stamp. Earlier this evening I was just blown away by a web site I found as I was looking for more information about that stamp than is provided by Scott. The web site is that of the U.S. Classics Philatelic Society.

Bob,

Before you go nuts the next time. Email me if you need something. I stoped collecting US and WW 20 years ago and have a large amount of duplicate material from around #200 into the 1960's. For a good cause I might even pull it from a book.

The past is a foreign country, they do things different there.
