September 14th, 2016

FindYourStampsValue.com is glad to share the latest auction news with our readers. This one will be devoted to 1917-1919 Washington 2c deep rose stamp that will lead a stamp auction in New York.

It will star in the second installment of the sale of the Hanover Collection of Superb Quality US Stamps at Robert A Siegel Auction New York on October 6.

The 1917-1919 2c displays unusually clean Schermack type III perforations.

The auction house describes it as: "an outstanding rarity and one of the rarest stamps of 20th century United States philately."

The stamp was delivered by the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing to the Schermack Company to be used in its stamp affixing machine. It's one of 34 used specimens out of the 40 surviving examples of the issue. It displays the telltale type III perforations of the Schermack machine which, unusually, have not cut into the design here.

This will dramatically enhance its appeal. Valued at up to US$65,000, it’s sure to prove a huge draw to serious buyers.
