Here’s a variety that’s new to us. It shows a distinct doubling of the ‘A’s.

We hope this sale is an indication of the quality of stamps we will see this year in future auctions. With the improvement in the economy we could be in for a good year in the stamp auction market. At least, that is our wish!
