Life Sentence

Random thoughts about publishing, stamp collecting, politics, popular music of the 60s and 70s, mooses, and my motley other obsessions.

This eBay lot might be fun to watch

Can you spot why this one caught my eye? Hint: Status International Auction #206 (24 October 2002) had something just like it, estimated at $80-$120. The lot # was 3221. I'm not going to be bidding on this eBay lot (unless it stays at the current low level). I already have a nicer copy of the rarity.

It was the #3 numeral cancel -- it is the rarest of the South Australian numerals. Very few copies are known. It isn't known what town the postmark was used in. Presumably a pleasant surprise for the seller and a nice find for the buyer.
