Default Microprinting etc on US stamps

The subject has become rather amusing as of late. Noting that I could
not find any one source that had a list of US stamps containing
microprinting, hidden images/indicia and luminescence/phosphoresence,
I've spent the better part of two days compiling one. My sources are
Linn's Stamp News (Dec 31, 2001 & Dec 1, 2003) and the Internet with my
trusty Google search engine. At this point I've found 308 US stamps
that fall into this catagory. Sounds like a fun adventure to assemble a
collection of them, perhaps with a notation on what particular
characteristic each one has. It would appear that there are a number of
non-US stamps with some form of these same attributes on them, however
since my main interests are the US and Canada, I didn't compile anything
but US data. I'll do Canada at another time. I've not verified each
stamp, just collected the data so its possible there might be an error
or two. By the same token, its just as likely that some stamps not
listed that have these attributes.

If anyone is interested in the list, let me know and I'd be glad to
email it to you as either a Word document or a text file.

dear Grandpa,

I would be more that pleased to see a text file with
your list...

gtx, Rein

P.S.

replace the last consonant before the @ by a 'n' in my e-mail-address,
otherwise your message won't reach me [anti-spam measure ]

Roy Lingen has suggested that Gramps write an article for Stamporama, with
illustrations. I hope that he does. (You don't have to be a Stamporama
member to read the articles; just go to http://www.stamporama.com/rambler.

Listing of US stamps with hidden Images, microprinting/indicia or luminescense/phosphorescence.

I've done my best to assemble from the Internet and several other sources, this list. If you find errors or additional stamps that need to be added, please email me at [email protected] net so I can update it. Thanx...

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++++++++++++++++++

These stamps include the feature of hidden images within the stamp itself. You'll need a $5.95 'Decoder' from the USPS to see them.

Scott 3206 - Wisconsin Statehood - picture of a badger
Scott 3230 - Dog - bone and doghouse
Scott 3231 - Fish - bubbles coming out its mouth
Scott 3232 - Cat - paw and mouse

Other tiny images on this stamp illustrate different modes of transportation, including on foot, on horseback, by Conestoga wagon, by stagecoach, by car and by plane.

These stamps have some form of luminescence or phosphorescence. You'll need a black light to brighten them.

I'll give it a shot, however my writing skills leave much to be desired.
When I've put something together thats a bit more than just the list
I'll send it on to Stamporama for editing and inclusion. It'll be a few
days though as I'm working on my inventory spreadsheet, which is almost
done, well, until I decide I need another tidbit of info anyway.G

For those unfamiliar with Stamporama, its a friendly group of folks
worldwide who participate on a web site that includes discussion areas
as well as some really nice auctions. Membership is easy and its FREE,
as is selling items in the auctions. The only things you need to become
a member are the desire, honesty and integrity. I recognize a number of
the names from this forum who are members. Bob is one of the moderators
and does an excellent job of it, as does the webmaster Roy. Nice people
there.

Grandpa,
I would be interested in a text version.
thanks,
Tom Loepp



Roy Lingen has suggested that Gramps write an article for Stamporama, with
illustrations. I hope that he does. (You don't have to be a Stamporama
member to read the articles; just go to http://www.stamporama.com/rambler.

The subject has become rather amusing as of late. Noting that I could
not find any one source that had a list of US stamps containing
microprinting, hidden images/indicia and luminescence/phosphoresence,
I've spent the better part of two days compiling one. My sources are
Linn's Stamp News (Dec 31, 2001 & Dec 1, 2003) and the Internet with my
trusty Google search engine. At this point I've found 308 US stamps
that fall into this catagory. Sounds like a fun adventure to assemble a
collection of them, perhaps with a notation on what particular
characteristic each one has. It would appear that there are a number of
non-US stamps with some form of these same attributes on them, however
since my main interests are the US and Canada, I didn't compile anything
but US data. I'll do Canada at another time. I've not verified each
stamp, just collected the data so its possible there might be an error
or two. By the same token, its just as likely that some stamps not
listed that have these attributes.

If anyone is interested in the list, let me know and I'd be glad to
email it to you as either a Word document or a text file.
