Recently, I made a post about the stamp collection of my Dad's that I've
been looking at. Today, I went to the library and took out a book about
stamp collecting, and in it was a story about Franklin D. Roosevelt
and the "Mother's Day" stamp he helped to design, and the controversy
From what I gather, the artist that created the stamp chopped off
"Whistler's Mother"'s legs, and added a vase with flowers, which
in turn generated some complaints.
Lo and behold, I check out my Dad's stamps, and there one of dem' dere
debbils' is! It has a cancellation across it saying 1934, and the letters
"IND", which I'm assuming to be Indiana.
Now, all you expert-types out there with access to the books with
values n' stuff, what's this lil' ol' stamp fetchin' on the
ol' stamp market nowadays?
Should I book a cruise to Tahiti, and retire from the earnings?
Can anyone help me out with this? My library was devoid of pricing
