11/1/17 - A new counterfeit stamp has been found on eBay. This time a coil issue after the 2017 U.S. Flag Stamp. The labels on the rolls are marked “BCA”, but the label on the tray of 50 rolls is marked “APU”. In the image, the real strip is on top. When comparing the two strips, it is obvious that the fake strip is wider. The counterfeit stamps are 1.0 mm wider than the BCA stamps. The coils and wrappers are also wrapped the wrong way. I will have more information about these stamps in an upcoming issue of Coil Line.

This festive and energetic stamp design features 50 blue and red stars spiraling around a central gold star on a white background. The idea for the design was to illustrate a community of stars protectively orbiting a central star that in an abstract sense stands for our nation's steadfast idealism and hope for a more perfect union. Antonio Alcalá of Alexandria, VA, served as art director for the project with art and typography by Polygraph, a Washington, DC, design firm.

The list price is $7.00 plus shipping and handling. The printing and mailing is being handled by Amazon.com. The button will take you directly to the Amazon information page.

The list will be updated as new publications are released.
