JPCohen - 3 1851 stamp project: We continue Dr. Chase's work on the 1851 3 Washington stamp; offering a fresh look at this important US postal issue. This is perhaps the most collected US stamp ever issued. Currently I have over 3000 reference items in my personal research library, with a goal is to make them reviewable here at this site. I have two plate reconstructions in progress plate 2 and 3. If you have any singles from these plates contact me today, I would like to consider an acquisition or your gift in kind. UPDATE! You can now download a free sample copy of my book, before its even published!
