Sheet of 16 gummed and perforated stamps, all different in design, executed in Higgins's typical bright colors and stark color Xerox texture on the subject of solar energy: some have denominations (50, 100, 25, 75), most refer to "Sun Day" (one refers to Solar Energy Day and another to "Solar Collector Issue") or to the dates May3-6, 1978 (although one stamp reads "May 3-8, 1978), and one has ęDOO-DA POST '78 in the upper right corner. The appearance of these stamps, and their availability for sale at the Truman Gallery in N.Y. was announced in the May 1978 issue of Umbrella (see below). In addition, two blank DOO-DA orange postcards: both are stamped with "3 p" (penny) denomination DOO-DA stamps in different abstract designs; the stamps are cancelled with the cancellation stamp of Jones & Russell's Pikes Peak Express Co., Denver City, dated Oct 6 1859. Interestingly, Jones and Russell's of Denver City is a real company: a pair of their 3-cent strikes, one of which was dated 1859, recently sold at auction for more than $375.00. Margin of stamp sheet missing in one clearly torn 2-inch strip not affecting stamp; perfs are ripped , again cleanly, between two stamps, which are not separated from the sheet. Postcards are in Fine condition with no flaws. Sold as a lot.
