    Description

    Donald Duck "Christmas on Bear Mountain" Stamp Booklet Signed by Carl Barks Proof Copy #P5/6 (Walt Disney/Inter-Government Philatelic Corp., 1997). The year 2017 marks the 70th Anniversary of Uncle Scrooge McDuck's first appearance in the Dell Four Color #178 comic book story, "Christmas on Bear Mountain." This classic story was celebrated in 1997 for Scrooge's 50th Anniversary, in the form of this very limited edition 9" x 7" stamp booklet. The stamps (issued for the country of Guyana) make up part of a complete reprint of the story, two comic pages per booklet page, with four panels in each comic page as perforated stamps. There is also a final page in the booklet that includes a photo of Carl Barks (1901-2000) and a small reproduction of Barks' "Bear Mountain" cover watercolor sketch (known by collectors as CB WAT 7); both of these are perforated stamps as well. The front cover of the booklet is hand-signed in gold pen by Mr. Barks (one of only 41 copies he signed, including 35 regular editions, plus the six Proof editions), and the back cover includes a tribute to the Good Duck Artist by Rev. Ed Bergen, president of the first Carl Barks fan club, "Uncle Scrooge Collectors International." One more added bonus: a hand-signed (in gold pen) color photo of Mr. Barks holding one of the booklets. Overall condition is Fine.
