We currently concentrate on the well-known manufacturers of private perforations, To my knowledge, there are few specialized dealers that maintain extensive inventories in this area, making it that much more important that interested collectors gather among ourselves, as a community, to share knowledge and enjoy these visually appearing and fascinating stamps.
There was a time when philatelists ignored this field and considered it to be unworthy of great collections. According to Stamps columnist Katheryn Van Den Berg in September 1941, “Schermack perforated stamps were long so much junk, being rated as damaged by collectors at large,” and she continued “There is now . . . , a small and growing market for these since Scott’s Specialized lists them. Few wholesalers carry them as yet. . . . Some day they will be in big demand.”
