    Nice!
    I only own 2 of those...
    The 113 and 114...
    As flawed as it is, I love that 241. It has tons of character and a relatively light cancel.
    What more can you ask for in a high value used?

    Thanks, I picked up the Scotts 241 $1 and Scotts 240 .50cent both for $20.00. Both have flaws but what do you expect for high dollor stamps for only $20..... lol

    I wonder why they are all different sizes? I did rescale them but I guess it wasn't recognized or something? Anyhow Please enjoy the pics. The coins was hard to scan as I just done them this morning for you.

    I love to share my collections & hard work with kind folks that can appreciate them. It took years to track some of this stuff down. I still need the Indian ticket and Handel the minstrel ticket as well as the workers passes and children's passes so it's a work in progress. There were also different event days that I believe had thier own tickets as well. I'll have to keep my eyes open for them I guess. Thank you.

    Where do you normal find that kind of stuff? On Ebay, I guess.
     
  15. Jay

    Jay Well-Known Member

    not really eBay as I'm a little leary about peoples descriptions and internet buying in general. I go to estate auctions, regular auctions, stamp & coin show (although it's been awhile since I've hit one) and friends and family. I will, however buy from reputable sites like Declampe and SwedishTiger as they are bonded and insured.

    Thats good info. How do you find out about auctions?

    Jay Well-Known Member

    Local ones are usually listed in the local newspaper and the stamp/coin shows in Linn's Stamp news. Also if you have a Scott catalog or the specialized catalog there are listings to about everything you can imagine.

    Thanks, yes I have a Scotts specialized catalog. Great information in there.
