Fernando Po

1907 4c black "King Alfonso XIII"
Issued with control numbers on the back of the stamp
Quick History
Fernando Po ( now Bioko) is an island located 20  miles of the west coast of Africa by Cameroon in the Gulf of Guinea. The island was found by the Portuguese navigator Fernao do Po in 1472.  The island is about 45 miles long by 20 miles across. The Capital then was Santa Isabel, and the population was 20,000 in 1930. Of interest, the island was inhabited by the Bubi ethnic group, which speak a Bantu dialect.

The Spanish assumed control of the island through treaties, and, under the overall administration of Spanish Guinea ( along with Elobey, Annobon, and Corisco), began to issue "Fernando Poo" inscribed stamps beginning in 1868.
These issues continued until 1908 when (except for a 1929 issue), the stamps of Spanish Guinea were then used. (Of interest, Spanish Guinea stamp issues began in 1902, but were only used in mainland Rio Mundi, until joined by Fernando Po  and Elobey, Annobon, and Corisco in 1909.) The postage stamps of Spanish Guinea continued until 1960.

Today, Fernando Po ( Bioko) is part of Equatorial Guinea. Reflecting its Spanish colony heritage, Equatorial Guinea is the only country in Africa today with Spanish as the official language.

Fernando Po (Bioko)
Into the Deep Blue
Affordable Collectability
The 2011 Scott Classic Specialized catalogue has, from 1868-1908, and 1929, 176 major stamp descriptions.

Prior to 1900: 64 stamps: <$20 - 48 stamps; Of those 23 are <$5.
1900-1908, 1929: 78 stamps: <$5 - 38 stamps; of those 60 are <$1.
From 1899-1929, there are 73 stamps <$1. 
Total "inexpensive" stamps: 126
Affordability Index = 72%.

Fernando Po stamps definitely appear inexpensive, with 42% of all stamp issues <$1.  BTW, all the inexpensive stamps, except for the 1929 issue, are of the "King Alfonso XIII" design types. But are they common in collections? No! Unless one specifically collects Spanish Colonies, which is unusual for a general WW classic collection, one will find not many of these "cheap" stamps around. In fact, I have only one example. ;-)

A closer look at the stamps and issues
Isabella and Alfonso are featured on the 1868-1889 issues (eight stamps), and seven of them are in the $5+-$10+ range.
There are handstamped varieties from 1884-1899 (25 stamps), and 14 of them are $5+-$10+.
There is the "baby" King Alfonso XIII issue of 1894-97 (10 stamps): eight of them for $2+.
The 1899, 1900, 1901,1902, 1903,1905 & 1908 issues (111 stamps), all with the King Alfonso design, offer the Deep Blue collector the bulk of the inexpensive stamps.

Deep Blue
Deep Blue has nine pages for Fernando Po, and follows the Scott Classic catalogue layout exactly.

Far Eastern Republic

1921 Scott 46 30r dark violet
Blagoveshchensk Local Issue
Quick History
Happy Thanksgiving!
The Far Eastern Republic was basically set up as a buffer state between  the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (which largely controlled the Far Eastern Republic), and the territories occupied by Japan during the Russian Civil War. The Republic existed from April 1920 to November, 1922.  When the Civil War ended and the Japanese left Vladivostock, Soviet Russia then absorbed the territory.

The Capital initially was Verkho-Udinsk ( Ulan-Ude), but was moved to Chita in October, 1920. The Far Eastern Republic consisted of four provinces of the former Russian empire: namely Trans-Baikal, Amur, the Maritime Province, and the northern portion of Sakhalin island. (See Map.) The population was 1,500,000.

The Provinces of the Far Eastern Republic
Into the Deep Blue
Affordable collectability
The 2011 Scott Classic Specialized catalogue has  65 major stamp descriptions for the years 1920-23. "Affordable" stamps can be found from the 1920 Vladivostok Issue -Russian stamps surcharged/overprinted- (3), 1921 Chita issue (4), 1921 Blagoveschchensk issue (5), 1922 Chita issue (10), and 1923 Vladivostok issue-Russian stamps surcharged-(5), for a total of 27 stamps.
Affordability Index (<$5) = 42%.

Especially inexpensive (<$1) are fourteen stamps from the 1922 Chitna and 1923 Vladivostok issues.


A closer look at the stamps and issues
I love where history and stamps intertwine, and the Far Eastern Republic stamps certainly qualify! A number of the stamps are surcharged or overprinted as one would expect in a chaotic and fluid historical scene. The most expensive FER stamp is a 1920 Russian surcharged occupation stamp (General Semenov), Scott N1, valued at $100.

A closer look....

1921 Scott 39 4k rose
Chita Issue
The 1921 , as well as the 1922 Chita Issues had their own designs, and provide 14 stamps in total that are inexpensive for the Deep Blue collector. The 1921 issue is typographed, while the 1922 issue (not illustrated here) is lithographed.  An internet source says the print run for the 4k above was 600,000, and valuation was in gold kopecks. The design shows a Provisional Government eagle with the text "Far Eastern Republic" inscribed around the coat of arms.

1921 Scott 44 5r dark blue
Blagoveshchensk Issue
Blagoveshchensk was a city in the Amur province that issued these stamps locally in 1921, according to Scott. But an internet source says the stamps were issued in October, 1920. Note the posthorns in the design. :-) Scott states the remainders were cancelled in colored crayon or by typographed bars, and sell for half of the specified value. Apparently, there are very few true used stamps, with the vast majority "remaindered".
You might note the green crayon cancel on the stamp above, as well as the bars over the 30r dark violet stamp illustrated at the beginning of this blog. ;-)

1923 Scott 68 5k on 10r blue with red surcharge
Vladivostock Issue: Russian stamps of 1922-23 surcharged
Vladivostock actually split away from the Far Eastern Republic in May, 1921, and this is a locally overprinted issue. All five stamps are inexpensive for Deep Blue collectors.

Deep Blue
The Far Eastern Republic stamp offerings are on four pages of Deep Blue, and follow exactly the Scott major number sequence. No problem at all.


Big Blue
Big Blue, on one line, has eight spaces; four for the 1921 Chitna issue, and four spaces for the 1922 Chitna issue. The most expensive offering is $3. Big Blue does leave some 19 stamps that are inexpensive out of the album. The Far Eastern Republic section can be found after the Dutch Indies and Epirus in the '69, and after Ecuador and Epirus in the '47/'41 editions.

Falkland Islands & Dependencies

1838 Scott 93 2sh6p gray black "Gentoo penguins"
Quick History
The Falkland Islands consist of East Falkland and West Falkland, and well over 700 lesser islands about 300 miles from the coast of South America in the South Atlantic Ocean. Although claimed also by Argentina ( see 1982 Falkland Islands War), it has been governed by British rule since 1833. A British Crown Colony ( and now a British Overseas Territory), the population was 2400 in 1931, and the Capital is Stanley.

Stamps with a portrait of Queen Victoria were first issued in 1878.

The Falkland Islands Dependencies was an arrangement to administer the claimed British territories in sub-Antarctica and Antarctica from 1843 until 1985. They were governed by Britain through the Falkland Islands Government. The Dependencies really are not inhabited, except for base and research personnel. Overprinted 1938 Falkland Island stamps were issued in 1944 for Graham Land ( on the Antarctic Peninsula), South Georgia ( a few scientists and support staff live there; "town" is Grytviken), South Orkneys ( British Antarctic Survey has a base there), and the South Shetland Islands ( several countries maintain research stations there).

1929-31 1/2p green "King George V"
The 1/2p,1p,2p,2 1/2p are inexpensive
Into the Deep Blue
Affordable collectability
The 2011 Scott Classic Specialized catalogue has, from 1878-1952, 142 major stamp descriptions.
Prior to 1900: 23 stamps: <$20 - 6 stamps; Of those 3 are <$5.
1900-1952: 119 stamps: <$5 - 38 stamps; of those 15 are <$1.
Total "inexpensive" stamps: 44
Affordability Index = 31%.

Falkland Islands stamps, as a British colony, and located in an interesting part of the world for collectors, are generally rather expensive.  The most expensive is the iconic 1933 £1 rose & black "King George V" @ $2000. Nevertheless, there are definitely affordable attractive stamps available.

The Falkland Islands Dependencies issues consist of 49 stamps between 1944-1949.  Forty-five ( 92%) are inexpensive.

A closer look at the stamps and issues
An overview reveals the typical British colony breakdown of Queen Victoria from 1879-1898 ( 23 stamps), King Edward VII from 1904-07 ( 8 stamps), King George V from 1912-1935 ( 37 stamps), and King George VI from 1938-52 ( 36 stamps). A wonderful pictorial set was issued in 1933 ( 12 stamps). Let's take a closer look...

1891-1902 1/2p Queen Victoria
Choices (in Scott) are 9 "green" ('92), 9a "blue green", 10 "yellow green" ('99)
This 1/2p Queen Victoria comes in three color varieties ( $10+,$20+,$2+) respectively as outlined above. Which one is it? The problem for the WW collector is often we do not have enough samples to compare colors and come to a reasonable determination. This stamp looks "green" to me, but the "yellow green" variety is much cheaper. My inclination is to label this the cheapest variety until I have more information.
Clearly a SG color guide would be very helpful, and I probably should obtain one.

Speaking of Stanley Gibbons, here is their breakdown for this denomination.
15 "blue green" ('91) £25
16 "green" ("92) £15
16b "deep dull green" ("96) £30
17 "deep yellow green" ('94-'95) £18
17b "yellow green" ('99) £2
17c "dull yellowish green" ('02) £4.75

Wow! A lot more parsing of colors based on issue dates. The good news is the colors and issue dates agree between the three Scott varieties, and the SG. Of interest is Scott has the "yellow green" as a major number (Scott 10), while SG has the color listed as a minor number (17b), even though it is the cheapest option.

1891-01 2 1/2p Queen Victoria
Scott 14($150+),15($10+),15a($20+),15b($30+),15c($40+),15d($60+)
 deep blue ('94), ultra ('94), pale ultra ('98),dull blue, deep ultra ('01),pale chalky ultra 
Based on cost ( probably because more common), the stamp above is likely a Scott 15 ultramarine ('94). But is it? ;-)  <shrug>. I have no samples to compare, and color perception can be very fickle indeed.

What does SG do with this issue?
27 "pale chalky ultramarine" ('91) £55
28 "dull blue" ('91) £30
29 "prussian blue" ('94) £130
30 "ultra" ('94-'96) £13
30b "pale ultra" ('98) £17
30c "deep ultra" ('01) £40

The SG prices seem higher than Scott catalogue valuations. ( £1 = ~ $1.50). The colors ( except SG "prussian blue" = Scott "deep blue") and dates (SG provides more of them) substantially agree. So actually, not too much trouble figuring out the SG equivalent for the Scott.

1912-14 1/2p yellow green & 1921-29 2 1/2p violet on yellow "King George V"
The 1912-14 issue (11 stamps) has wmk 3, while the 1921-29 issue (8 stamps) is wmk 4
As is often the case with British colonies, there are two issues of the George V definitives separated by watermark differences. The Multiple Crown  and C A wmk (wmk 3) is found on the 1912-14 issue, while the Multiple Crown and Script C A  wmk (wmk 4) is on the 1912-14 issue. Since valuations are indeed different, it is more or less necessary that the watermark be determined. Fortunately for the WW collector, watermark determination for these stamps is usually not that difficult.

1938 85 1p "red & black", & 85a 1p "rose carmine & black"
King George VI issue: "blacked neck swan"
The 1938-49 King George VI pictorials , of which 12 of them are in the 'affordable" category, can come in different shades. Be aware that SG especially parses the shades very finely. Knowledge is power. :-)

1946 & 1948 Falkland Islands Dependencies
The 1946 map  is "coarse", while the 1948 issue is "fine"
The Map stamps of the Falkland Islands Dependencies are quite interesting. The 1946 issue has a map that is drawn in a thicker and more coarse way. Note that the 0 degrees Longitude line goes right through the "S" of "Coats". The 1948 issue is drawn finer, and the 0 degrees longitude line is not drawn through the "S". Scott makes a note of the two issues, but does not give them separate numbers, while SG does give them their own numbers. Deep Blue also separates out the two issues. Also, there are at least six engraving errors for these stamps, which SG illustrates.

As you no doubt have realized, I am including the 1940-52 year British Commonwealth stamps for discussion as it makes a lot of sense, and Deep Blue includes these pages in their classical era PDF files.

Deep Blue
Deep Blue actually provides more spaces than the Scott major numbers; specifically, as mentioned above, for both the 1946 & 1948 Falkland Islands Dependencies Map stamp issues. I'm grateful. :-) Naturally, Deep Blue provides separate spaces for the King George V 1912-14 & 1921-29 issues based on different watermarks. I'm so used to BB, that it seems a luxury. ;-)

There is one possible mixup in Deep Blue. On the first page there is a space for a 1p "Watermarked Crown and CA sideways 1891". I believe this was one of the stamps that was officially bisected in 1891 to 1/2p and used as such. The bisect was from a 1p 1886 issue or a 1891 issue - so Deep Blue does provide two spaces for these bisect issues.  The bisects themselves are rather expensive ($300), so I will not talk about them anymore. But what stamp -1p "Watermarked Crown and CA sideways 1891" should go in the space mentioned? I can't find any that meet the criteria. The 1886 stamp (Scott 7) is watermarked sideways, but is a 1886 stamp, not a 1891 stamp. And Deep Blue already provides a space for this stamp. Then there is a Scott 5a stamp -1p claret-that was bisected, but does not have a sideways watermark. There is also a 5c 1p red brown ('91), that was not bisected (according to Scott), but also does not have a sideways watermark. But hold on! SG lists a '91 red-brown (SG 11), as a bisect! But this stamp's watermark is upright. So I can find a stamp that is watermarked sideways, but not a 1991 issue. And I can find a stamp ( or two?) that is a 1991 issue, but not watermarked sideways. I actually think Scott 5a ($190+) - as it is not offered a space before-should go there. But it is not watermarked sideways. Very confusing. Of course, this discussion is moot if we are concentrating on affordable WW stamps. ;-)

Found in Big Blue: 1933 Scott 65 1/2p green & black "Romney Marsh Ram"
This lovely 13 stamp issue unfortunately has only two that are inexpensive
Big Blue
Big Blue, on 2 pages, has 37 stamp spaces for the years 1878-1938. There are four Victorian era stamp spaces ( 1/2p, 1p,2p, and blank ( probably 1 1/2p)) for $2+-$10+. The 1904-07 Edward VII has three spaces . The 2p dull violet is $20 mint. Then, the 1912-23 King George V has five spaces. As is usual for BB, the wmk 3 & wmk 4 issues are combined.  The 2p brown violet & 2 1/2p deep ultra are almost $10. The 1929 King George issue has six spaces, the most expensive being the 1s black on green for $25 mint.
The 1933 pictorial issue has four spaces, the 1 1/2p costing almost $20. Of course, the 1935 Silver jubilee, the 1937 Coronation, and the 1938 George VI issues through 1sh (8 stamps) are included. Actually, Big Blue has good coverage of the Falkland Islands classic issues. Can't find fault. ;-) Naturally, no issues past 1940, including the Falkland islands Dependencies are included.

Comment
A) I will be fairly strict according to Big Blue’s date and color criteria for a space, but reasonably pragmatic at times too. ;-) Since this is a “simple” checklist, not an annotated one, there will often be no explanation for the choice. Rest assured the same care that was taken for the annodated list is also strived for with the simple list.

B) If there are several stamps to choose from for a space, I will not comment on any price if there is a choice for <$10. If all the choices are >$10, then I will indicate the price for the least expensive

C) More expensive stamps include (Threshold >$10):
1904-15 Scott 24 2p dull violet $20 mint
1929 Scott 60 1sh Black/green $25 mint
1933 Scott 67 1/2p light blue & black $19 mint

D) (  ) around a number signifies a blank space suggested choice

E) Big Blue does not cover the Falkland Island Dependencies, so no checklist included.



1904-07 Scott 23 1p red "King Edward VII"

Out of the Blue
Really, quite interesting issues, although the color varieties of the Victorians are challenging indeed. The 1933 Falkland islands Pictorials probably rank as one of the all time great British colonial stamp issues. Unfortunately, besides the first two ( the 1/2p & 1p), the next six are generally in the $20-$50 category, and then goes up from there. :-(

Into the Deep Blue: A new focus

1908 Austria Offices in Turkey 1 Piaster
Deep Blue on Blue: the blog's "mascot" stamp
Into the Deep Blue
If you have been following the blog for awhile, you may have noticed  my exasperation with Big Blue's tendency to leave many inexpensive stamps out of its pages. Not the "fault" of Big Blue, really, as Scott has always intended BB to be a "representative" album. :-)

Now, Part IA1 "Aden-Ethiopia" section is complete, along with a 223 page comprehensive checklist.

Done!

But a new focus.

I am migrating to "Deep Blue", my affectionate (and telling) name for Bill Steiner's Stamp Album Web PDF pages.

I DO plan to actively publish as I have done this past year. I will continue to do a country by country analysis of the classical era. I hope to cover (eventually) all the political entities that have ever appeared in Big Blue.
(If that becomes an impossible task, I would at least cover the major stamp issuing entities.  For now, I'll continue with an all world coverage ;-) )

The focus will be three-fold.

From a classical era world wide collector perspective, I will look at a countries affordable stamps and issues. My criteria for affordable is generally less than $20 CV prior to 1900, and less than $5 CV for the rest.

If a country has tricky issues, re-engraving changes, or some unusual quirk or stamp history that might be of interest to the classic WW collector, I plan to examine these - provided I have sufficient material to do so. BTW, I now have the Stanley Gibbons 1840-1970 British Commonwealth catalogue, so hope to be somewhat bilingual. ;-)  ( I am also working on Maury (French) and Michel (German), but that could take awhile.)

Finally, I will  look at the coverage of Deep Blue compared to the Scott Classic catalogue. There might be at times some interesting differences.

Big Blue
I will continue to monitor the stamp issues that are found in Big Blue in a general way.  Big Blue offers an essential kernel for WW classical era collectors, and it would be foolish to ignore its contents.

But I will not continue with a formal checklist*. If you are a reader who would like to take up the mantle and construct a Big Blue checklist for some or all of the remaining countries (with your own blog), consider doing so!

* Addendum 2-1-12: The checklist, albeit in a simpler format, is back. Yes!

Out of the Blue
I hope the change in focus will appeal to anyone with a sincere interest in the classical era that would like to learn more about these incredible stamps.

I've enjoyed the time I spent with "Big Blue" this past year. I would like to acknowledge those who made this checklist fun by your active participation; thank you! I would especially like to recognize Bob Skinner of  "Filling Spaces" blog fame for his inspiration and ongoing encouragement -Thanks Bob!

Now into the Deep Blue and the Falkland Islands.......

Jim Jackson

The Part IA1 checklist for Aden-Ethiopia is available here

The checklist that was scrolled down the left side of the blog is now complete for Part IA1 Aden -Ethiopia. It includes not only all the A-E countries found in Big Blue now, but those political entities/stamps that were dropped in the '69 edition.

Here is the checklist.

If printed out, keep in mind the list is 223 one sided pages with one column. I've seen two column formats that work quite well. A three column format does squeeze the notes, but is do-able.

The checklist of course is also included with each countries blog. Remember, caveats and cautions about the checklist are often more fully discussed in the specific country blog.

Now a reminder about the format and uses of the checklist.....

Note: You will need to consult a Scott catalogue for specific pricing. I only give a very "ball park" price, and never the actual catalogue value.
<$1= less than a Dollar
$1+= more than a Dollar
$2+= more than two Dollars
$5+= more than five Dollars
$10+= more than ten Dollars
$20+..and so on.

Note: Some Scott numbers appear out of sequence. That is because I usually follow the layout of the page. 

Note: Blank spaces are sometimes limited by which stamp will fit.

Note: Due to the vagaries of copy/paste, the <$1 valuation appears as &lt; on this list: remember here that means less than $1 valuation. ;-)

1914-26 Ceres

Update note: The 1914-26 "Ceres" issue presented here is based on the 2011 Scott Classic Specialized 1840-1940 catalogue. But the 2014  catalogue revises the listings into 1914 "chalky paper" Perf 15 X 14; 1915-22 "ordinary paper" 15 X 14; 1921-26 "ordinary paper" 12 X 11 1/2; and 1921-25 'glazed paper" 12 X 11 1/2 major number catagories. It also gives a minor number to the 5c pale blue.
Here are the "old" numbers....
118,119,120,121,122,123,124,125,126,127,128,130-deep blue, 130-bright blue, 131,132,133,134,135,136,137,139,140,141,142,144,146,148,149,151,154(&lt;$1-$1+)
Two blank spaces: suggest 138,155 (&lt;$1)
Note: Scott 1947 catalog broke down the todays Scott 130 5c Blue Ceres into two colors:deep blue and bright blue. To fill the two spaces with todays Scott 130, look for these two shades.

Some major Scott numbers have shades that were issued after 1940, while the pre-1940 shade is now catalogued with a minor number. In other cases, it is difficult/impossible to determine which shade Big Blue is listing. I am ignoring shades for the purpose of the checklist, so there could be Scott numbers listed here with color varieties issued after 1940. For the full discussion, see Big Blue Bottom Line-Antigua.

Still, Scott 231 is the only "brown" 10c stamp in the series, so must be it. :-) Addendum April12, 2011: There is definitely a red-brown colored 10c, because I have it. But it might be Scott 490 '49 wmk 288. There is also a 10c brown-I have it too. But it could be Scott 529 '46 unwmk. The "real" 10c "brown" is wmk 90. Time to get out the watermark tray...

Update note: The 1912-1932 "Ceres" issue originally presented here was based on the 2011 Scott Classic Specialized 1840-1940 catalogue. But the 2014  catalogue revises the listings into 1912-19 "chalky paper" Perf 15 X 14; 1917-21 "ordinary paper" 15 X 14; 1918-26  "ordinary paper" 12 X 11 1/2;  1924-30 "glazed paper" 12 X 11 1/2 , and 1930-31 Perf 12 X 11 1/2 "With Imprint at Foot" major number catagories. I will present here both the old numbers (for those with an old (~2011) catalogue), and the new present numbers (~2014).

Note: For differences between type I, type II, type III : see Scott.
Note: BB lists date 1879-1894 which fits exactly the type I issue; but type II (1894-98) begins in 1894 and is generally less expensive, so is included here. Also type III ('98) is included.
Note: Minor numbers are type II, except 6b (type III).

Note: No gum for Mint, and some "chalky" minor numbers are cheaper
Note: I am interpreting BB's "1861" date as "1861 type", so the (slightly) less expensive 1866-67 issues are choices.

1914-26 Ceres Update Note
The 1914-26 "Ceres" issue presented initially was based on the 2011 Scott Classic Specialized 1840-1940 catalogue. But the 2014  catalogue revises the listings into 1914 "chalky paper" Perf 15 X 14; 1916 "ordinary paper" 15 X 14; 1920-26 "ordinary paper" 12 X 11 1/2; and 1922-26 "glazed paper" 12 X 11 1/2 major number categories. 
For those with older catalogues (~2011), I will first present the "old" numbers. I will then present the current (~2014) numbers.

Old numbers....

Two blank spaces: suggest '26 issues 181($10+) and Scott 182 10e pink ($40)!
Note: I'm giving the choices for the '26 Ceres issues as that is clearly the intent of BB. But Scott now lumps all the A6 designed Ceres together under the "1914-26" dates. So if one wants to insert ANY A6 Ceres choice, then (alternative suggested) 165(&lt;$1) and 168($2+) could be put here.

Ceylon

1857 Queen Victoria (Imperf)
one penny (illustrated): Scott 3 1p deep turquoise ($40+) or Scott 1p blue ($250+)
Note: A judgement call : I interpret the "1857" date by BB strictly, and do NOT include the less expensive perforated 1861, 1863, and 1863-67 one penny issues. If BB wanted us to consider the latter issues, they should have printed "1857-67" for the space. If you wish to put perforated issues into the space, just alter BB's date to "1857-67". You will find the cheaper one penny issues under "additionals" in Big Blue Picture.

(1938-40) Regional surcharges on Dr Sun Yat-sen 5c Green*
Six blank spaces: These regional surcharges consist of a 4c surcharge for Hong Kong, and 3c surcharge for Shanghai, Hunan, Kansu, Kiangsi, Eastern Szechwan, and Chekiang. The surcharge colors are carmine, black or red. Some surcharged stamps have watermarks. *Big Blue specifies the 5c "green", but that is a mistake (in my opinion), and the 5c "olive green" should also be collected. The regional surcharges appear on the 5c "green" and 'olive green" Scott 440,441,442,443,444,445,446,447,448. So mix and match, and obtain a nice selection for the six spaces. See Scott for details.

Comment: If you wish to include these stamps in BB's spaces, change the inclusion dates in BB to 1870-1901, or 1870-1904. Because of cost, may be a good idea!

*Note 35: space is illustrated in BB with small numerals in corners which would argue for 35, a $100 stamp. But the date range is 1882-85; so 38, a larger corner numeral variety, and a $2+ stamp, is allowed.
Note: 1882 Scott 35,37 are small numerals in corners; while 1884-88 Scott 38-40 are large numerals.
Note: Again BB leaves out re-issues. Specifically...
