Resident Fishing and Hunting Stamps
These rather unusual "combination" stamps permitted sportsmen to fish, hunt for various game birds including waterfowl, and also hunt for deer. They were issued for two years only, 1951 and 1952. The 1951 stamps were printed on linen, in sheets of ten (1x10) with deer tags to the leff of each stamp. The sheets were plain rouletted Wi between the stamps and the tags. The reverse of the stamp portion was gummed (shiny) and the tag featured an eyelet for affixing to the animal. The stamps were not serial numbered. The 1952 stamps were printed on lightweight cardstock, in sheets of ten (1x10) with deer tags to the left of each stamp. The sheets were rouletted 9 1/2 between the stamps and the tags. The reverse of the stamp portion was gummed (shiny) and the tags included an eyelet. The stamps were serial numbered in red. A large quantity of unused remainders of stamps from both years made their way into the philatelic market via an auction conducted by the Utah Department of Fish and Game following the 1952 season. The stamps were sold for a small fraction of their face value. Unused values are for stamps with tags attached. Unsigned values are for stamps with tags attached and without gum — particularly prevalent on combination stamps from 1952.
