Last week I published an image and lot description from the Anthony Terranova collection of counterstamps:
Medium golden gray with steel highlights. BOB DALTON / OUTLAW / KILLED AT COFFEYVILLE / KAN. / OCT. 5. / '95 on six lines at obverse center.
Sharp-eyed reader Joe Boling writes:
But the engraving doesn't say "Coffeyville." The engraver left a letter out.

The mention of the Strand Bookstore brought back fond memories. I would visit it often when I was an undergrad at Pace University (near City Hall), a graduate student at NYU (at Washington Square Park), and a federal government employee (at #6 WTC & the Federal Bldg.). You would never know what you would find there. I'd get lost for hours in the basement going through the stacks. Thanks for the memories.
