    This is my Scotts 594. I'm pretty sure that's what it is. It's from New York. Dated 1924. And it's the right hight. Then the next set of pics will be of one of my 596s. Yes that's right. I have three of them!!! Not even playing guys. If you guys look at the top of my test Gage I made out of the first edition Franklin you will notice the half a millimeter height differences between the two.

    If its perf 11 scott 594, 22.4 mm high and19.5 wide Census record 594 124. 596, 22.5 high it has a chance, the color is right dark green. Member costs are around thirty dollars for each copy, But alot more if they are genuine. Well worth it in the long run. it takes 4 months to have it expertise. Below is 594 then a precancel 596. Your 596 from Kansas city would be the only one known with that cancel on it. image_stack_img-8.jpg image_stack_img-1929.jpg census for Siegal is only 15 or the 596 flag cancels or Kansas city precancels, And I dont see any on covers or post cards.

    Send it to the American Philatelic Society and have it checked by the experts.

    Stamps that are exceedingly rare are sold with certificates of authenticity. I concur with Slusarczyk that if you believe you have such a rare stamp you should have it authenticated.

    Do you know any reason why none of them are on covers or postcards?

    I believe they were not discovered as a different type until much later, They were treaded like a common Scott 552, its the same color and perf 11 as well just smaller in size. We still to this day cut our envelopes corners off and bag up thousands of stamps with out checking them for types and errors. In fact I have bought a bag of them and found error stamps, not canceled stamps, paying just a few dollars at my stamp club for hundred to thousands of them. I hope they are genuine, It helps bring more people to collect stamps and exciting to think it is quite possible to still find rare stamps still today. Good luck and keep us posted on your results.

    Ok I tryed calling wicks and wicks and nobody believes that the stamps I have are genuine. The guy wouldn't even let me send it in and hung up on me. I'm sending some pics with my stamps I'm using a Scott's 595 Washington which is the exact same measurements as the 594 stamp. I can't get anybody to believe that these are for real and I don't know what to do? Please help!

    Send to the APS for a certificate. You can an expert look at it online as well but sending it in is the best way, Try www.philamurcury.com. All the experts are on there. If they say its not the right stamp then it is not.

    Hi Rob,
    I think Richard means philamercury.com not philamurcury.com. It's likely a typo.
