Don't MissThe 2011 Plymouth SHOW!!!
April 30 & May 1, 2011 at Central Middle School
650 Church Street, Plymouth, Michigan 48170

Info & Directions:

The 2009 Anna Julia Cooper - Black Heritage stamp (Scott #4408) MINT NEVER HINGED complete in a strip of five stamps. There is a veritical perforation/die cut error. Blind Perfs. The horizontal perforations/die cuts are normal, but the vertical perforations/die cuts do not penetrate the stamps. With the backing paper removed there is only a light impression where the perforations/die cuts should be. The only way to separate the stamps is with a pair of scissors! These would make a wonderful addition to any collection of Black Heritage or Education topicals. These were discovered by the clerks at the Post Office who found that the stamps could not be separated without scissors. $16.00/pp

That's Devan Boggs and his friend Paul. Devan sold me a small lot of stamps at this show.
Janine Gurka and son Lance (8 1/8) inspect the 25-cent cover box for bargains!
Gerald Daene with graddaughter Erika Deane (12) inspect items from the 4-cents-and-up cigar box. Grandpa drove from Detroit to Toledo to pick up Erika, brought her to Plymouth for the show, and afterwards took her home to Toledo! All that in a bad, snowy day! You two are tops!
Sitting next to the Daenes are Mark (11) and father Albert Olejnik. Dad's looking at some United Sattes used issues. Mark tells me that he knows exactly what kind of stamps he likes, "Big and good!"
50-Year-Old Alaska Covers SPECIAL!

TWO 50-YEAR-OLD ALASKA covers, one from Palmer, one from Sitka, both dated 1955 can be yours for only $7, postpaid. Your covers will be similar to these two shown here. Alaska postal history is a growing area, especially as more collectors vacation in that beautiful state. It's rugged history, and limited number of early towns and settlements add to its lure and mystique. Very limited quantity. Once they're gone, they're gone! Send payment to: Bob Giles, Box 1198, Royal Oak, MI 48068
