    Apparently, a stamp featuring Toyotomi Hideyoshi
    was issued in Liberia on 22-6-2000.
    Can someone send me a scan of that stamp please.
    I sure would appreciate it.

    Would anyone have for sale, or know anyone who might have for sale, an imperforate version of Liberia Scott 525-530, Napoleon 1970 set of 5 ?
    Thanks! Ken Berry, krb2@earthlink.net

    I’m conducting a survey of LPS members to determine the quantity of full printer’s sheets of the 1949 Arthur Szyk issue, (Scott 309-12, C63-4). These sheets have extra large margins surrounding two panes of stamps.

    I have three sets of printer’s sheets. Two of the 5c value, #312, and another of C63-C64. The two 5c sheets are different as one has marginal markings and the other does not. Each of them is in progressive proofs, so there are 11 sheets in each set.

    I’m working on an exhibit of this issue and this request for census data of these sheets is research for that exhibit. Prior to a European auction purchase, I had only read that this set was printed in sheets of two panes that were cut from these sheets. I had not seen any or even heard that they still existed. Of course, with Liberia, it seems anything is possible.

    Does anyone else have any full printer’s sheets? If so, would you please share with me what you have? I will tabulate the information received and report on it either on this site or in the LPS Journal.

    Thanks so much for your help in this survey.
