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.
