Putting A Stamp On Westport

To honor Westport’s 175th anniversary — or, more likely, in just a coincidence — someone is selling a “centenary poster stamp” on eBay.

The stamp — it’s unclear what it was actually used for — was issued in 1935.  That year, it honored the 100th anniversary of the founding of Westport as an official town.

The listing gives few details beyond:

Vintage vignette commemorating the town’s incorporation in 1835.  Approximate size: 40mm x 24mm.  Mint never hinged.

It’s not exactly the Upside Down Jenny stamp.  As of Saturday morning — with less than 2 days remaining in the sale — it drew a high bid of a whopping $7.50.
