    Ahh don't be jealous swish, you have plenty of stuff that I would love to have so that makes us even! I must admit though, I never thought I'd come that close to completing the set (minus the dollar values of course).

    I have more bureau issues too but unsure of what order the all go in. Got 2 different color blue & brown 5¢ Grants and an orange 50¢ Jefferson and a brown Daniel Webster that I'm thinking is a 282C and a few green ones too which may or may not be #258 definitely not 226 no triangles in upper right or left frame corners... but there must be at least 2 different bureau sets is all I can figure?

    Also, to add to the original topic- here are the rest of my new additions in their new spots for your viewing enjoyment!
    I am aware that these images are compressed a lot but they look sharp right?

    Very nice sheets.
    I once had a whole bunch of the blue #24's (well my dad), several blocks of 4 and 6, he sold them at an action but it was a set I'll never forget.

    I also dig the 2nd picture up, 4th row from the bottom. I think they were Louisiana purchase ones, id I remember right, the colorful ones with the black picture in the middle. I have a couple of those and always thought they looked sharp.

    Why Thank you kacyds! I'm slowly getting to about where I wanna be in my collection. I want to wrap up the post 40's material and exclusively focus on the early classics. I got a good start I would say?

    Thank you zararina! I have a little work to do on them yet getting better centered copies and undamaged ones (like the badly re-perforated 1$ Farragut in the Series 1902 set.) It'll be fun!
