The United States Stamp Society donated a valuable prize to World Stamp Show – NY2016. The award was a complete error pane of 20 of the $2.00 Bobcat definitive plate number 1111(1) with the engraved black missing. As a result, the $2 denomination and initials USA are missing from all 20 stamps. The multicolor lithographed & engraved stamp, designed by Chuck Ripper, was issued June 1, 1990.
Listed as #2482a, each of the 20 stamps are valued at $200 in the 2016 edition of the Scott Specialized Catalogue of United States Stamps & Covers.
The United States Stamp Society had an active presence at the big show.
Two new books were released on opening day, Saturday, May 28 at 1PM… The Encyclopedia of United States Stamps and Stamp Collecting, Second Edition and The Durland Standard Plate Number Catalog 2016 Edition. Guest speaker was Jay Bigalke, editor of the American Philatelist. The Encyclopedia was available during the show at the USSS booth and can be purchased from the website store.
