I haven't been working on my revenue collection for a while, so it's time to get back into things again...

U.S. Scott R249 (red numerals) and R249a (orange numerals) both with a double transfer throughout. Not incredibly rare, but considerably more scarce than the Scott catalog values imply ($62.50 vs $50 for the normal stamp).

I picked up the orange numerals example about 5 months ago and found the red numerals example on eBay 2 weeks ago. This is an area where cherrypicking is still lucrative, both online and offline.

Third image below is a non-double-transfer example for comparison. Click on each image to view it at full resolution.
