Some of you may have seen this already. $45 is about the cheapest I've ever seen any 1984 eagle intaglio print offered for. The seller apparently has a number of B-65 available, which probably won't make Ken Barr happy. But collectors can take advantage of this deal. I suggest checking with the seller first, though -- B-65 should be the brown eagle, but the photos appear to show the blue one.

Apologies to anyone bidding, but there are four nice BEP intaglio prints with super low minimums that were posted the other day. I'll be curious to see what these go for -- it should be an indicator of interest in the hobby.

This one closes within a day. These Lincoln cards don't show up often and hardly ever as a full set. If someone can pick them up for around the minimum that's less than the issue price.

Greg won the Lincoln cards and 3 other cards he had listed.
Got sniped on those other 4 cards.

You mean "Danny won the Lincoln cards." I wasn't bidding. [wink]

OK, it should have been "Greg, I won the Lincoln cards". I had just sent you a PM and forgot to "dot  the i" so to speak. [biggrin]

The seller said the cards had belonged to their dad and they had no room to store them. I'm guessing they were  from his estate. I had mentioned that the sale price was less than they cost and they said their dad had paid over $100 for them. Do you keep records of the issue price?

Had to consult a back issue of the SC Journal, but the issue price was indeed $20 per individual card.

I'm not sure how many forum members are interested in philatelic cards, but there are two batch lots (25 cards each) for sale on HipStamp at less than a dollar a card. It's an interesting mishmash of USPS, BEP, foreign, and private cards, but each batch has an early show cancelled card that almost pays for the collection: PS-5 and PS-20. The cards are common, the cancels are not.

Here's a really nice forerunner -- F1979B. These aren't exactly scarce, but you don't see them very often on Ebay. The price is right and the shipping is free.

 Greg, interesting that you ask that. Dang you! I have MANY of these put away with my 10's of thousands of stamps. Not to be short, but I'm NOT going digging for them. With my uncontrollable obsessive disorder I would be off on a stamp tangent AGAIN! For now I'm letting that sleeping dog lie. But thanks for the refresher and reminding me that I have stuff that does have some interesting worth and knowledge in all the stamp stuff.
