~ Stamp No. 161: United States ~
("poster" stamp)

Another non-postal "poster" stamp. This is the only item in the entire collection originating in the United States. Monmouth College (in Illinois) has a Scottish heritage and in the 1940s that occasioned the beginnings of a pipe band, which is active today. This tiny stamp was found by our friend and fellow bagpipe-stamp collector Sean Stewart of England. Acquiring two copies (one for himself and the one seen here) was a very long and frustrating process. Folks, this is one obscure little bit of paper!
