Canada Post Remembers Its Heroes

On October 24 Canada Post issued a single stamp in a sheetlet and booklet pane to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.

After more than four years of bitter struggle, the fighting in the First World War came to an end at “the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918. This stamp celebrates the silencing of the guns and commemorates . . .

Stamp for Third Barrel Fermented Malt Liquor

The latest issue of The American Revenuer—the journal of the American Revenue Assocation (ARA)—carries remarkable news of four Revenue Stamps (Scott REA184-87) that were snapped up on eBay at the Buy It Now price of $1,000. “Anonymous”—possibly the buyer(?)—reported that “…experienced revenue stamp dealers charge up to $2,000, depending on condition” for the Hogshead stamp (Scott REA187).

Even more significant, shown here, the 1/3 Barrel (Sc. REA184) is the only known unused example and that the Scott value for a used example is $35,000 (the most recent realization being $12,000 in 2017 for one of the two known examples).

As none were known before this discovery, REA184 is not listed in unused condition in Scott. When they add it, if they go by the price realized in the marketplace, at most that would be $1,000, the eBay sale price. However, “Anonymous” aptly points out, “It is undoubtedly safe to say that if either of these two newly discovered mint examples ever came to market in a well-publicized auction, bidding would be spirited.”

From this we can draw the inference that an eBay Buy It Now offer is not a well-publicized auction for specialized items such as this. (The auction was started at $9.99, but the Buy It Now offer pre-empted it!) Also that the buyer was much more knowledgeable than the seller of this lot.

Stamp releases for March include: Mister Rogers and Illinois Statehood!

Fred Rogers (1928–2003) was known as a beloved television neighbor to generations of children.
