Instead of a number to fish and wildlife services, this years stamp has been misprinted with a phone sex number and will not be recalled, nor will correct ones be made for future sales this year.
The carrier card for the duck stamp transposes two numbers, so instead of listing 1-800-782-6724, it lists 1-800-872-6724. The first number spells out 1-800-STAMP24, while the second number spells out 1-800-TRAMP24.
People calling that second number are welcomed by “Intimate Connections” and enticed by a husky female voice to “talk only to the girls that turn you on,” for $1.99 a minute.
For those people who like to dial by letter, the card does include the proper 1-800-STAMP24.
The error, which was first reported Wednesday by Denver TV station KUSA, is limited to self-adhesive versions of the stamps. The moistened version, which is printed in much smaller numbers, does not come with a carrier card.
Sounds like a collector’s item, but maybe since there are so many of them it won’t be.
every duck stamp is considered a collectors item. for something that doesnt date back that far and sells millions a year for $15 they can sell for quite a bit. i have saved all mine over the years.
