 Scott #356 Paste-Up Census.

This is a census of all known Scott #356 paste-ups that I created by searching through the Philatelic Foundations certificate database, the American Philatelic Expertizing Service certificate database, four major auction houses that have searches through thier sales lots and general Google searches around the internet.

The numbering sysem I'm using is based off of the system used by Siegal Auctions to census all of the known Scott #356 used pairs and multiples.  The breakdown of the census number is as follows: 356PU-CAN/UNU-SNGL/PR/STR-Cencus Number where CAN = Canceled (used), UNU = Unused, SNGL = Single, PR = Pair and STR = Strip of Three or more. 

The census begins with the oldest paste-up in the PF certificate database to the newest paste-up in the PF certificate database next come the oldest to the newest paste-ups found in the APEX certificate database and finally paste-ups with PSE certificates found in auction lots.  Any new finds going forward will be added to the end of the census in the order thay are found.  I will update the older PF certificate images with better ones as I find them in the future

As of 6/2/17 I have found a total of 20 unique examples of the Scott #356 paste-up joints of which 16 come from the PF certificate database alone, of the rest two are from APEX and two are from PSE.
