The Great American Stamp Show (GASS) in Cleveland is less than a week and half away. Beth Gregerson, the artist who designed the new Battle of Lake Erie issue and myself are excited to be on the stage Friday the 11th at 3:00pm for the unveiling of the new stamps. We will be providing special unveiling postcards after the event for Beth to autograph. Just curious who may be attending the ceremony? I would greatly appreciate it if you are planning on attending to send me an email. Several newspapers have articles in the works for August and I plan on sharing them through blog postings. Also, the site will be updated shortly after the unveiling to show and accept pre-orders of the 2023 Battle of Lake Erie stamps and FDC's. Ten days and counting! Dave Gill RILP.ORG

Welcome RILP collectors. I'm starting a data base of RILP stamp errors of the triangle stamps from 1967-1989 & 2005-2010. I'm not focusing on the 1966 rectangle stamps as Dr. Frackelton had told me in an interview from 2007, that there was a fair amount of printers waste gathered up from those runs. I have started looking through the RILP, Inc inventory and discovered a 25c 1973 perf Walleye sheet with missing black color. Also some extra perfs and some missing perfs on some sheets between 1967 - 1974 so far. According to Dr. Frackelton, perf errors were impossible to occur since a die was used. While that may be true for 2005-2010 stamps I have serious doubts about 1967-1989 stamps. The errors I found are in the middle of the RILP, inc inventory and also the Jacob Kisner price lists of 1984 & 1995 explain how they found errors in 2 large purchases of RILP inventories. I believe the 1967-1989 stamp series were perforated with an in-line perforating machine, but I do not have any verification of that yet. If anyone has any form of proof or leads of finding out how the stamps were perforated, please post here or email me. Also, as I uncover any errors in the RILP, inc inventory I will post picture and eventually come up with a certificate of authenticity describing the error and the date it was discovered. I can only back these certificates up with my personal word that they were truly found and not made up. So, please submit and error scans or info regarding the perforation process. Also remember, 6 triangles make a hexagon. (or plate block of RILP stamps) Dave Gill RILP - PMG

I invite all to weigh in on the 2022 issues options. Just roulette 24? Roulette 24 & Imperf? Or all three options (Roulette 24, Perf 12, & Imperf) ? Perforation counts are per 2 centimeters
Roulette 24 perforations - opinions? content media

Welcome to the Rattlesnake Island Local Post website. I'm excited to revive and relaunch the RILP. We are still on schedule for the First Day Issue on 11-10-22. Beth Lynne Gregerson has painting the 3 triangle based on the 3 photos displayed in the shop 2022 section. A new printer has been selected since Watt Printing is no longer in business. All of the other details have been slowly falling into place. Over time, I will be glad to share more details regarding the design & printing process here on the forum as more interested rilp.org collectors become members. Pre-sale should start later in Sept. As in the past, collectors are welcome to send in their own FDC envelopes and just pay for the added RILP stamps. We will use the rectangle "first day issue" stamp and the required diamond dated hand cancel touching the 1-3 RILP stamps. The RILP stamps need to be on the front left bottom of the cover. And if there is no room for the rectangle "FDI" box on the front, it will be stamped on the back. Also furnish a SASE for the completed covers to be mailed back, unless you would prefer they are mailed back through the USPS system. Don't forget to affix the proper USPS stamp in the upper right.
