Podcast #13 Show Notes

  • Stamp News:  The Marilyn Monroe Auction
    • http://www.juliensauctions.com/images/auctions/2014/marilyn-monroe/flipbook/index.html#/72/zoomed
    • December 6, 2014 Julien’s Auctions Beverly Hills is holding an auction of property from the personal and professional life of Marilyn Monroe.
    • 33 pages of the auction catalog are dedicated to letters, including a “heartbreaking letter to Monroe from her soon to be ex-husband, Joe DiMaggio. It was written just after Monroe’s press conference announcing the couple’s divorce. DiMaggio writes about watching that press conference on television. It is clear in the letter that the baseball superstar did not want their marriage to end and he asks Monroe to reconsider.”
    • Fan letters, postcards, financial docs, telegraphs and celebrity letters are among the list.
  • Stamp Collecting and History: Frederick Douglass
    • December, 1847 Frederick Douglass publishes the first issue of his newspaper “North Star”, that was an anti-slavery newspaper which ran from Dec 1847-Jun 1851. The first U.S. stamp on which he appeared is the 25 cent Scott #1290 Douglass, which began production in 1965 and had a long run, finally ending on Nov. 24, 1986.  This stamp is the focus of an investigation found in the November 2014 volume of “The United States Specialist,” in an article titled “Regulatory Ink Change and an Unrecognized Color Variety: The 25c Frederick Douglass Definitive” by Charles Neyhart, which we will be referencing later during our discussion on Color Varieties.
  • Updates: Caj has some apologies he would like to make…
