Created and published by Linn’s Stamp News, Linn’s U.S. Stamp Facts 19th Century brings together in one convenient volume the vital signs for the earliest U.S. stamps: designer, engraver and printer; the printer; the plate layout and plate numbers; and the number of stamps put into distribution.
Linn’s and Scott catalog editors combined forces with collectors and specialists to gather and verify the data for each stamp listed. Much of the information is not available in standard philatelic catalogs. Additional data for each stamp allows you to gauge a stamp’s rarity, both on and off cover. Highlights include:
- Format is very easy to comprehend and use
- Largest known unused and used multiples
- Earliest known use
- Most typical uses and estimated number of surviving covers
