Pheasant Restoration Stamps

First issued in 1977, pheasant restoration stamps were required to hunt all small game and migratory waterfowl. The stamps were issued in booklet panes of five (1x5) with a tab at the top. The panes were perforated 12 between the stamps and between the stamps and the tab with the exception of the 1980 stamp, which was rouletted 7. Through 1987, four panes were stapled between covers to form a booklet. For 1988, five panes were included in a booklet. After 1988, the series was superseded by wildlife habitat stamps. The stamps all have dry gum.

A high percentage of unsigned and used pheasant restoration stamps are faulty (creased, etc.). The values for unsigned and signed stamps below are for sound copies. Faulty copies sell for considerably less.
