Scott 4868 has 3 Varieties

Guest Ray

Recommended Posts

Scott 4868 - coil - Forever - Flag & Fireworks. I have 3 varieties. One with the "SSP" microprint above the flagpole in the fireworks; one with the "APU" microprint in the bottom white bar of the flag against the flagpole; and, one with no microprint.


1. What do SSP and APU stand for?

2. Is there a Scott Variety number (e.g. 1st described above is 4868, second is 4868a, and last with o microprint is 4868b) for each variety?

Hi Ray



This link has 158 different suggestions for what SSP stands for

This Link has 36 different suggestions for what APU stands for

Sorry I don't know the answer.


Don't know the answer either. One would need a specialist catalouge and I don't have access to one.

Great Stamp collecting, sorry couldn't help

Ray,  the APU (Ashton-Potter (USA)) coil stamp with the USPS microprint in the bottom white stripe of the flag is Scott # 4854.  The SSP (Sennet Security Products) coil stamp with the USPS microprint above the flagpole is Scott # 4868.  The SSP stamp without the microprint is a booklet stamp Scott #4869.  All of these stamps are listed in Stampmanage but the photos may not show the microprint.
