Stamps (Philately)/Partially Imperforate US 1901a


I have a partially imperforate pair of Scott # 1901 precancelled bicycle stamps. The top 4 perforations (out of 12 total) are missing. What would be the value?

Good morning Ray,

Thanks for your question.  

If you have a genuine imperforate pair, that's a nice find for your collection!  Scotts 2013 catalogue lists an imperforate pair for $140.00.  A word of caution on imperfs---some people have trimmed the perfs in an attempt to con you into purchasing what you think are errors.  I strongly recommend you have them appraised by a professional grading company (hopefully before purchase).

Thanks again for your question and let me know if I can be of any more help.

I have been involved in philately for most of my 56 years. I specialize in United States Issues and Postmarks. I have numerous reference sources to research if I do not know the answer. I am organized and promise swift courteous answers. I am a member of the American Philatelic Society. I also have my own philatelic mail order business.


As I mentioned, I have been collecting philatelic items for most of my 56 years. I have several albums of United States issues (most of them are pages I designed myself) and I also have numerous albums of postmarks sorted and researchhed by state.
