You got a great one electrachrome! Looks super clean for a 150. Are they still coffee/tea staining them?

Two candy stamp prints for a lucky few in this 150 set (front and back seen here). For those not familiar with the candy stamp these are unique/original in someway or offer a special redemption. As kids, we always loved the sense of chance and discovery in things like the Tootsie Pop Shooting Star wrapper. Legends of luck and good fortune to those who find one. Please do share if you receive either of the two.

I got a teal/green edged one and has a lot of stain and drip marks on it. Beautiful print in person.

Yeah. My favorite thing about his copy is how it doesn't have a candy stamp. :P

No Candy Stamp, but I'm happy with what I got.

I remember someone commenting that those red stamps can bleed, especially if your in a high humidity area.
mylar/polly bag them or keep a sheet of interleaving material under it if you don't frame it right away.

Saw one on ebay a while back with the staining from the date stamp. So yep. Be cautious.

The white space on top is really distracting

I was thinking the exact same thing

I'd prefer it on the bottom with sigs partially covering the space
