Marvel Prototype Stamps From Marie Severin On Auction Today

Here is something you don't see every day. The great Marie Severin drew various prototype stamps of Marvel characters back in 1964, and the 36 piece set was split up by a collector. Right now, at Heritage Auctions, 5 of these drawings are taking bids right now. The five characters include Captain America, Captain Savage, Kid Colt, and two of the Rawhide Kid. Each one measures 1.5" x 1.5" and is really cool looking. As of this writing, they are fetching $410, which seems criminally low for something like this, and wow, unique it is. You can check out all five down below.
