Once again, Did I find something Collectible or Not? That is the question. Here we have TWO 4-Cent Lincoln post cards with two different Positions were stamp was placed. They just caught my eye that something did not look right. Any help will do !!!!

Mystery Solved

    In my catalog, this postal card is identified as Scott# UX48 first issued Nov. 19th, 1962. It is pre-canceled with 3 printed red violet lines (in other words, when it was purchased, the postage was pre-paid so the user could simply write on it and mail it with no further stamp needed) - The catalog then refers me to #UY18 which is a "Paid Reply Card" - Paid Reply cards are listed as "severed" and "unsevered" and were sold attached but with a fold for seperation. The sender could send both cards attached and the recipient could then detach the unused card and send a pre-paid response card. -- Therefore, I believe these would be identified as Scott# UY18 un-used "severed" set. There is no mention of the placement of the precancels except to say they are "identical" and they give no illustrated examples. - Value is nominal even for an unused "unsevered" set at $3.00 so don't put in an order for a new Bentley. :)
    Collectible - yes, to a postal card collector, however the discoloration on the one card would diminish its value, however it does make for an interesting conversation piece if it is indeed "misprinted"
