Flag Over Yosemite


Black Trees

2014  SCOTT  CATALOGUE  VALUE  IS  $180.00

The Auction:

This auction is for one 2280e Black Trees pair Fine and MNH. The stamps are scarce compared to the normal green color. The 1988 Flag Over Yosemite stamps have water activated gum and are perf. 10 vert.

Peter Cocci designed the colorful pair and BEP printed them. The stamps were reprinted many times with different plate numbers and tagging. Twenty five cents paid the First Class mail 1 oz rate until Feb. 3, 1991.

The accidental substitution of black ink during printing instead of green is considered a color error. These are the 'tall trees non-ski-slope' type from block tagged plate #9 guaranteed 100%. The black tree errors are on plate 4, plate 5 and plate 9. Plate numbers are extremely scarce.

Most sellers don't know that the ski slope variety was only on plate #5, while plate #4 black trees tend to be a redder shade of black but also tall like these from plate #9. All 3 varieties are considered variations of the same error in Scott catalogue.  A normal green trees stamp is shown for comparison (sold separately).

Satisfaction and accuracy guaranteed.
