............perhaps you can scan the eventual page,
and submit it to our TL "Phil" award.

"..........and for the category of "Short Editorial",
The winner is.............."


| I'll give it a shot, however my writing skills leave much to be desired.
| When I've put something together thats a bit more than just the list
| I'll send it on to Stamporama for editing and inclusion. It'll be a few
| days though as I'm working on my inventory spreadsheet, which is almost
| done, well, until I decide I need another tidbit of info anyway.G

Dear Grandpa,

I would very much like to have a list of US stamps with microprinting since I am about to present a program on this topic to the Metro Louisville Stamp Society. You may email me it as a Word document at .

And thank you for this service, not just to me, but to the hobby.

Linn's Stamp News (Dec 31, 2001 & Dec 1, 2003) and the Internet with my
trusty Google search engine. At this point I've found 308 US stamps
that fall into this catagory. Sounds like a fun adventure to assemble a
collection of them, perhaps with a notation on what particular
characteristic each one has. It would appear that there are a number of
non-US stamps with some form of these same attributes on them, however
since my main interests are the US and Canada, I didn't compile anything
but US data. I'll do Canada at another time. I've not verified each
stamp, just collected the data so its possible there might be an error
or two. By the same token, its just as likely that some stamps not
listed that have these attributes.

If anyone is interested in the list, let me know and I'd be glad to
email it to you as either a Word document or a text file.
I would love a copy of the list with microprinting, thank you word document would be fine. Kater
