Those are some really incredible looking stamps.

Pretty convincing, they look like "real" stamps! I inherited my grandma's stamps (more of an accumulation than a collection), and some of them go back to the early 1900's. I can spend hours looking at them!

Glad you like them Keith. All part of my favorite collection.

Major, In fact they looked so real, that the Post Office told them to stop producing them. People were actually putting these stamps on items to mail.

Hi, funny thing. I saw your website. Recognised them and went thru my collection. I have the new york public library and also A columbia university one. They made it all the way to New Zealand... Do you know if they have any value or are they for show? They do look good in my collection :)

These stamps are part of a series of ten different, fairly popular with collectors and relatively cheap. Full sets are often sold on eBay at around $10.

Going throu a box of things I picked up somewhere I found a full set of the Eaton stamps in a clear envelop with no wear. Wondered what they were and now I know. Thanks for the website clarifying these stamps. I'm not a collector, but think I will frame and mat them for a wall display. They're very pretty and will make a nice display.
