- Page 39 - Re: Note regarding Paste-Up Stamps.

A copy of RP730 -- Series 1915, 1/20-pound, imperf with blue serial numbers -- has been seen as a paste-up. Like most examples of these paste-ups, this used stamp has a serial number that is a multiple of 30. The stamp is well aged and Its roller cancel is unreadable. The 1/20-pound denomination of Series 1915 continued in use through the Series "A" and "B" periods into 1935.
