Chautauqua County R&W Misspelled Name- Chautauoua

This one had me scratching my head, or maybe slapping my head in awe and amazement.  This auction was for a Chautauqua County RWS misspelled as Chautauoua, a used one at that.  Nearly $ 2,000 from a seller with zero feedback.  But he buyer has been around for a while, as he had feedback of over 1000.

Clicking on the image will bring you to the auction for the next couple of months.

I know some folk collect misspellings, but this seems quite a premium for one.


Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes.
