So, anyone got one of these?  Unused and waiting to be stuck to something!  What's it worth?

There's no way that postage stamp is unused, John.

Unless cougarkitty has figured out a method to remove the postmark as well as replace the gum... :?

Re. the sticker; was certainly curious as to what that might have gone with, if not in isolation.

Putting a copyright message on a return label seems a bit harsh, and neither does it have "Distributed by" printed on it. ;)



I suspect someone would be tempted to BIN that at $5-10.

Is certainly kinda cute ^^

Pure speculation here, but here I go:



The coloration and copyright date on the sticker suggests that it may match some of the geomorphs sets to me:  did TSR change addresses during the time that they were being printed, and if so, perhaps the stickers were used for that product to cover up the older addy?



Thoughts?

I am going to have to go through my entire collection now.



I have seen that sticker on something before...just can't remember what.

I would agree with the above statement that it could fetch 5-10 on BIN easy.

Well, the colour seems to closely match the logo on Outdoor Geomorphs, more than the Dungeon Geos.  What does that mean?  No idea.

The white speck on the 'n' in Geneva. Is that a flaw in the print on the sticker or a speck on the sticker when you photographed it?

It certainly beats the D&D Players Association sticker that comes up from time to time.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Flaw in the sticker.

John,

What did Bella tell you about this sticker?

Nothing. I asked about the business card in the photo, thinking it might be a clue to the ownership of the lot.



But she said it was a sticker and that it was probably worthless and I could have it for recommending the image hosting site.



Why?

Hmmm...



No reason, really, just curious. :)



But I don't think it's worthless.  It certainly is an intriguing case.
