Scott English, Executive Director of the APS, is joining us at the show and bringing this stamp with him.

Scott says: "This particular stamp is Position 65 from the McCoy Block stolen in 1955. This was the second of three stamps recovered from the Block. APS Executive Director Jim DeVoss recovered the stamp by happenstance (so the story goes) in 1982, not long after the first stamp was turned over to the American Philatelic Research Library.

"You may recall that I recovered the most recent stamp from the block in 2016 at the World Stamp Show in New York City. That stamp was sold last year for $250,000."

Also Scott has supplied a 6 page article from the September 2014 issue of The American Philatelist about the theft and block in pdf format and it can be download here.
