My impression was that there was a kind of recall or stop distribution order or something.... 60 mil? I saw a pane listed for $27 somewhere.. but less on ebay.  Inerestinglyone man ray stamp sold for $4.++ on ebay.

It would be good to find some answers - i did use some back then and occasionally later from the batch I broke up.


Guess you are home safe :-)

Thanks for asking! I did a short search to see if I could answer your 
questions. Nope. I see nothing about rarity (60 million sheets produced…) nor 
about any controversy. One site with four sheets for sale at $12.99 each, not 
quite double face value of the stamps so not unreasonable. Also I did find a 
number of images of the sheet and detailed descriptions of the individual 
photos and their place in the output of the given photographer. And, as I 
looked at an image of the full sheet, I was reminded that I had bought two of 
these and had them mounted/framed. One was a gift to my father-in-law, one was 
to keep. So in a box or boxes I have two sets. Will have to dig those out…

I bought a few "panes" of this 2002 issue - I have two left and have been 
toying with selling one, but looking at listings on line I'm surprised they are
available for as little as they are.  None of the listings mention that they 
were rather quickly pulled from distribution because the heirs of one of the 
photographers went after the USPS for using one of his/her photos without the 
estate's permission.at least, that was the story I got back then...

I was trying to buy them at my local post office that summer and they were out 
of them.. had to go hunting. I had used some before I found out about the
rarity due to a stop in distribution or even , perhaps, some were recalled.

Doanyof you remember anything more about this? Whose offspring was involved?

I'm glad I found I still had two panes
