Preserve a National Stamp Treasure Interest-Free Time Payments Make it Possible 1847 10¢ U.S. #2 Now 166 years old, U.S. #2 is highly desirable. Plus it’s four times scarcer than U.S. #1 and the key to completing the first issue of U.S. stamps. Owning it is every collector’s dream – and finding the 10¢ Washington with fine or very fine centering makes this even more exciting! U.S. #2 U.S. #1 and #2 were issued on the same date – July 1, 1847. However, U.S. #2 was actually used for postage on July 2, 1847, five days before U.S. #1. So it was the first government-issued stamp to actually move mail across the U.S. The 1847 10¢ Washington stamp was typically used to frank a single rate domestic letter sent over 300 miles – imagine the history that could be associated with this U.S. #2. Adding the historic 1847 10¢ Washington stamp to your collection is a real accomplishment – take advantage of interest-free time payments to achieve it. 2 1847 10¢ George Washington, Black Used Very Fine Centering........................................................................... $4,460.00 TIME PAY

A Note From Don... Dear Fellow Stamp Collector, While I write this, workers are busy 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to complete the National Postal Museum’s Gross Gallery. As a longtime supporter, donor, and chairman of the museum’s Council of Philatelists, I’m thrilled to be part of Donald Sundman this exciting project. President Mystic Stamp Company I was fortunate to be taken behind the scenes for a quick tour during a recent visit. The Gross Gallery is actually six galleries in one with space to exhibit U.S. and worldwide stamps, greatest rarities and much more. Among the items is the CIA Invert Mystic donated to the National Postal Museum years ago. I wanted the rarity to be available for the enjoyment of all collectors, so this is a dream come true for me. Thousands of stamps that have been stored away – some for decades – will also be on display. And the gallery’s stained-glass windows, which depict famous U.S. stamps, are amazing when the museum is lit at night. As NPM Director Allen Kane said, all of this will have “long-ranging implications for the future of stamp collecting.” I’m proud to see the project progress, and encourage you to plan a visit to the National Postal Museum. You’ll be glad you did! P.S. We’re always updating MysticStamp.com with new offers, big beautiful stamp images and important stamp facts. It’s a valuable resource! $ Remember to look for the yellow star on offers of $10 or less!

Rather than design and engrave a new stamp for the Series of 1916-17, the ornate $5 Marshall design of the Series of 1902-03 was pressed into service. The $5 stamp was used to send packages to Europe and to pay registration fees on domestic mail containing valuable documents and Liberty Bonds. U.S. #480 cost the equivalent of $356.00 in today’s wages. Many collectors were unable to buy the stamp at the time of issue – making it a rare find today.

Scarce U.S. #1 on Cover with Fine Centering Issued July 1, 1847, America’s first stamp is scarce. It’s even more difficult to find postally used on the original envelope that carried it through the mail. In the past, collectors often removed the stamps and discarded the envelope. Today both are treasured. Why is Premium Centering Rare with U.S. #1? When you examine the expert engraving of U.S. #1 it’s important to remember the primitive conditions in which these historic stamps were produced. They were created by skilled craftsmen U.S. #1 on cover with very fine centering working by the light of whale-oil lamps. Many factors contributed to poorer alignment of old stamps. All things considered, it’s amazing those early printers were able to make the stamps as well as they did.

The First U.S. Stamps Had No Perforations

Post office clerks and stamp users cut these early “imperforate” U.S. stamps apart with scissors or tore them along the edge of a metal ruler. When the first U.S. postage stamps were issued in 1847, rates were determined by the weight and distance. Letters mailed 300 miles or less were 5¢ per half ounce; those over 300 miles were 10¢. In 1851, Congress reduced postal rates, and new denominations were needed. The 1¢ Franklin was used on mail up to three ounces and on “drop letters,” mailed to the same town. Letter rate was changed to 3¢ per half ounce sent less than 3,000 miles. Anything mailed over 3,000 miles (between east and west coasts) was 6¢, raised to 10¢ in 1855. Prepayment of postage was made compulsory in 1855; before that, it was optional.

G Grill Today the Pictorials are seen as innovative, but in 1869 they were radical and unpopular. Collectors saw them as frivolous. In fact, the Pictorials were so unpopular they were withdrawn from sale within a year of their issue. Plus, many collectors didn’t save the

stamps. That’s why #112-22 are so scarce today. It wasn’t until the 1893 Columbian Series that such innovative design elements were again used on U.S. stamps. Order By Scott Cat. No.

The Story Behind The “Bank Note” Stamps...

The 1869 Pictorial series was very unpopular, so new stamps were issued in 1870. Nicknamed the “Bank Notes,” this series was printed by three currency printers – the National, Continental, and American Bank Note Companies, in that order. As the printing passed between companies, so did the dies and plates. To distinguish their stamps from the others, each company printed the stamps with slight variations. When Continental received the plates from National, “secret marks” were added to distinguish them from Continental stamps. Identifying these stamps can be challenging. The Bank Note stamps are over 120 years old – and tiny flaws reveal their journey while saving you money... up to 60% off Mystic’s U.S. Stamp Catalog price.

Identifying Hard and Soft Paper

The Bank Note Companies printing stamps from 1870-88 did not use the same paper. This helps in identifying some of the different stamps. National printed grilled and ungrilled stamps 1870-71. Their paper was hard, fairly white, smooth, and of uniform thickness. It is tightly woven and fairly translucent (light will show through if you hold a stamp toward the light). Continental printed stamps with the same designs in 1873, but with secret marks. That paper was hard and very similar to National’s. It is translucent and grayish white. American printed the same designs in 1879, but used soft paper. It is thicker, coarser, with uneven texture, and yellowish compared to National’s and Continental’s.

Get the Story behind the Stamps Originally issued in brown, the 2¢ Jackson was reissued in 1875 in vermilion. The color was changed to eliminate confusion between the 2¢ and 10¢ stamps. Although the 7¢ stamp had been issued in vermilion, it had been withdrawn from sale, due to new international Universal Postal Union rates. The new international rate created the need for a new stamp. A 5¢ stamp featuring Zachary Taylor was issued to meet the standard rate effective July 1st. Often used to frank letters to Europe, this stamp is common in European collections. Order By Scott Cat. No.

Lower First-Class Rate Increased Mail On October 1, 1883, Congress reduced the First Class mail rate from 3¢ to 2¢ per half ounce. A red-brown 2¢ stamp picturing

George Washington was issued. The new lower rate dramatically increased the volume of mail handled by the U.S. Post Office. A new 4¢ blue-green stamp picturing Andrew Jackson was issued in 1883 as well. The 4¢ stamp was used to pay the over onehalf ounce to one ounce rate. Most postally used stamps with higher denominations, like U.S. #216-218 (Series of 1888), survived an overseas journey aboard a steamship. Order By Scott Cat. No.

243 Columbus Describing Third Voyage

As America’s first commemorative stamps, the 1893 Columbians are important... every U.S. collector dreams of owning the complete set. In 1947, noted stamp author Lester G. Brookman said, “Few if any series of stamps are so sought after by U.S. collectors as the ‘Columbians.’ The degree of completion of the Columbian series in any collection has almost become a yardstick by which a collection is measured.” And only a fraction of U.S. stamp collectors will ever own the complete set. In the case of the $4 and $5 stamps, less than 25,000 of each stamp made it into the hands of collectors. Some of those stamps have certainly been claimed by the ravages of time. That’s why this opportunity to get them all is so very special. You can be one of the lucky few. The stamps were issued in conjunction with the spectacular 1893 Columbian Exposition, which celebrated the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World. Each beautifully engraved stamp tells a portion of Columbus’ story. *Note: H-239 through H-245 are available in limited quantities!

Watermarks and Triangles Add Interest to the 1894-98 Bureau Issues…

ON U.S. #266

With the issue of the 1894 series, the U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing (BEP) began printing postage stamps for the first time. When the BEP took over the printing, they also received the dies and plates previously used by the American Bank Note Company. Triangles were added to the upper corners to distinguish the Bureau Issues.

The Trans-Mississippi stamps of 1898 are among the scarcest and most desirable of all U.S. issues. This issue was only the second U.S. commemorative series and was produced in conjunction with the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition. The Exposition was held to further the progress and development of resources west of the Mississippi River. Since the Exposition was held in Omaha, Nebraska, these stamps were nicknamed the “Omahas.”

Originally intended as bi-colored stamps

When the die proofs were made for the Trans-Mississippi stamps, they were produced in 2 colors for each stamp (black and a second color). However, the SpanishAmerican War broke out in April of 1898, and the time and manpower necessary for 2-color printing was not available. So the stamps have only a single color as listed.

The higher denominations are especially scarce today

Few of the higher-value stamps were sold, perhaps because the high-value Columbians were still on sale. On December 31, 1898, all unsold quantities of the Omahas were recalled and destroyed. They may be even scarcer today than is commonly believed. All the stamps are based on original art. Nos. 289 and 291 are from drawings by Frederic Remington. Other artists include William Lamprecht (No. 285), Captain S. Eastman (No. 287), John W. Orr (No. 288), A.G. Heaton (No. 290), and J.A. MacWhirter (No. 292). 6

The Post Office Department issued a new set of regular issue (definitive) stamps in 1908. While the 1¢ stamp showed a bust of Benjamin Franklin, the remaining 11 stamps bore the profile of George Washington. The border designs were identical, with a cleaner, more modern look. The uniformity and simple design made preparation work easier and extended the life of the plates. The 1908-09 “Washington-Franklin” designs remained in use for several years, with numerous varieties in terms of perforations and watermarks.

369 – Blue Paper

U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward negotiated the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. He battled Congress to approve the $7.2 million purchase – about 2¢ an acre. People considered Alaska a frozen wasteland and referred to the vast territory as “Seward’s Folly” and “Seward’s Icebox.” However, when Seward was asked about his greatest accomplishment, he replied, “The purchase of Alaska! But it will take a generation to find that out.”

The Hudson-Fulton Issue Celebrates Over 300 Years of Achievement

A 1909 celebration commemorated two different Hudson River events: in 1609 (300 years earlier), Henry Hudson discovered the river in his sailing ship the Half Moon; and in 1807, Robert Fulton proved that his steamship the Clermont did indeed work – the first successful navigation with a steam-powered ship. Though this stamp pictures both the Hudson and Fulton ships, it was artistic license, as the two existed almost 200 years apart. The Indians in canoes represent the first means of navigating this beautifully scenic river.

Beautifully Engraved Stamps Issued to Publicize the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition

400A – San Francisco

401 – Balboa

402 – Panama

After the 1893 Columbians, 1898 Trans-Mississippi and 1901 Pan-American stamps were issued, collectors began anticipating commemorative sets publicizing expositions celebrating historic events. In 1904, a stamp writer predicted the issue of commemoratives honoring the completion of the Panama Canal. Collectors were rewarded by some of the most beautiful and skillfully engraved U.S. commemoratives – the Panama-Pacific stamps. The set also honors the 400th anniversary of the discovery of the Pacific Ocean. The first 10¢ stamps were found to be too light a shade, so a darker shade was adopted in the latter part of 1913 (#400 was discontinued in favor of #400A). In 1914, the perforations on regular issue stamps were changed to 10 per centimeter to make the sheets stronger. The Panama-Pacific stamps also underwent this change. Most

403 – Golden Gate

404 – San Francisco

collectors ignored these new collectibles, since they already had the 1913 issues. The set was on sale from 1913 to 1915, but few collectors bothered to save the Perf. 10s and they are notably scarcer today, especially in unused condition. Order By Scott Cat. No.

The Postal Service received complaints, particularly from heavy-user businesses, that sheets perforated 12 were too brittle and fell apart at the slightest touch. Thus, to strengthen the sheets, perforating machines were altered to 10 perforations per 2 centimeters – beginning with the 1914 issues listed below as well as the #40104 Commemoratives.

Pilgrim Tercentenary Issue This series honors the brave people who came to the New World in 1620 and built the Plymouth Colony based on freedom of religion. On November 21, 1620, aboard the “Mayflower,” these colonists wrote and signed the first agreement for self-government in America, known as the “Mayflower Compact.” Many of these colonists were “Separatists” fleeing religious persecution. 1920 Pilgrim Tercentenary Issues H-548 1¢ green .......................

Last “Flat Plate” Definitive Postage Stamps 556 M. Washington

557 T. Roosevelt

“Flat plate” refers to a hardened steel plate which has the design of a stamp etched on its surface. Ink is applied to the etched surface using a roller. It settles in the low spots of the design, but also adheres to the raised surfaces. To get rid of that excess ink, the plate is wiped down, and is pressed into the paper, which has been slightly moistened. That is how ink is transferred to the paper. With engraved stamps, you can feel the raised surface of the ink on the paper, a useful tool for identifying stamps. In fact, raised ink surfaces are still used for security on paper money today. Flat-Plate Presses Printed Bi-Color Stamps Until 1957 Until the Giori Press was introduced in 1957, all bi-color stamps were printed on flat-plate presses. The flat-plate printing required two separate runs. With the Giori Press, different color inks are applied to the plate at the same time. The rollers put the ink only where it’s needed, rather than coating the whole surface.

Rotary Presses Save Time and Money!

ON U.S. #595

Until this regular series issue, rotary presses had printed only stamp coils. Problems with precanceling, weak perfs, and gum were overcome by the creative people at the BEP. In October of 1923 the one-cent perf. 10 stamp was issued in sheet form on a rotary press. The production rate of the rotary press over the flat plate press was substantial and cheaper – only .053¢ per 1,000 compared with .08¢. When you’re talking millions of stamps you’re talking real money! Order By Scott Cat. No.

The 1926 White Plains sheet (#630) was America’s very first souvenir sheet – an important milestone in stamp collecting history. Issued in extremely low quantities and now 85 years old, only a small percentage of collectors can own this desirable “first.” When the second International Philatelic Exhibition was announced, postal officials decided to participate by releasing a special stamp issue at the show. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing was instructed to create a sheet of 25 stamps and add special commemorative wording on all four sides. The design of the 2¢ White Plains stamp (U.S. #629) was used to create the souvenir sheet. Its fine engraving is based on an original painting by E. L. Ward, who used the 1869 30¢ Shield and Eagle Pictorial stamp as the basis for his design. Ward replaced the shield with a portrait of Hamilton’s battery. Ward’s portrait captures a pivotal moment in American history. Alexander Hamilton was a skilled artillery battery commander. On July 12, 1776, Hamilton’s battery became the first to fire at the British during the Revolutionary War. Three months later, Hamilton and his men fought alongside George Washington during the historic Battle of White Plains. The 1926 White Plains souvenir sheet has always been scarce. In addition to the low issue quantity, many sheets were broken up by postal customers and dealers. Act now to get #630 for your U.S. collection.

These stamps were created to honor the arrival of the first Norwegian settlers in the U.S. in 1825 and Leif Ericson’s visit to America in 1000 A.D. Believing interest would be low, officials decided to issue a limited number of NorseAmerican commemoratives in a single color. Distribution was limited to less than 300 post offices nationwide. To their surprise, supplies sold briskly and the Post Office Department was soon deluged with requests for a second printing. However, no additional Norse-American commemoratives were created, making these striking stamps often difficult to find today. Cost was a factor in limiting the issue quantity.

First Rotary Press Definitive Series These stamps represent the first series of definitives printed on the rotary press (previous definitives were considered experimental). The rotary press was invented by Benjamin Stickney of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. By 1926, rotary printing was reliable and very cost-effective. New perforations were used on this series. Customers had complained the perforation 10 used on past definitives was too hard to tear. The stamps perforated 11x101/2 were successful.

During the 1920s, post office robberies were common in Kansas and Nebraska. Thieves stole stamps in one state and sold them in another. To prevent this, experimental overprints (Kans. and Nebr.) were applied like precancels by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. If successful, overprints would be used in other states too. But the overprints were not recognized as valid by uninformed postal workers. The public was unhappy and the idea was abandoned.

Stamp-collecting President Franklin Roosevelt personally approved the over 200 stamps issued during his twelve years in office. Yet, FDR’s appointment of Postmaster General James A. Farley led to the biggest philatelic scandal in American history. Collectors call this scandal “Farley’s Follies.” Farley had the habit of taking ungummed, unperforated sheets of stamps off the presses and signing them as souvenirs for the President, a few other prominent citizens, and his three children. He was creating valuable rarities! Protests arose when news spread that an imperforate 1934 stamp sheet had been offered to a dealer for $20,000! Soon after, it was learned uncut sheets had also been presented as gifts. As public outcry grew, Congress became involved. To remedy the situation, reissues of all the stamps printed since March 4, 1933, were issued imperforate and ungummed in sheet and block form, resulting in Scott #756-771. Today, collectors refer to the stamps of this 1935 special printing as “The Farleys.”

By June 15th the rate was reduced to 16¢, and by December it was 6¢. The 6¢ rate didn’t include special delivery.

C11 Beacon on the Rocky Mts.

The Jenny Invert is the most famous stamp error in the world. Just 100 Inverts were produced – all on a single sheet – by a printer’s simple mistake. Since the discovery of this philatelic gem, its value has skyrocketed. The 2013 Scott Catalogue lists the price of a single invert at $450,000! In 2005, the only Jenny Invert Plate-Number Block in existence found a new home at Mystic Stamp Company. President Donald Sundman traded his rare 1868 1¢ Z Grill stamp for the unique Plate-Number Block of four which previously sold at Robert A. Siegel Auction Galleries, Inc., for nearly $3 million.

Freaks and Errors are Missing From Most Collections Set Your Collection Apart – Order Now! Nothing adds prestige to a stamp collection like a rarity, which is why freak and error stamps are so very desirable. Even the most common freak is much scarcer than the normal version of a stamp. And true errors are rare. Some of the most-treasured stamps in the world are error stamps. Now you can have them in your collection! A Fascinating Specialty Freaks and errors are stamps not prepared according to their design specifications and mistakenly released to the public. Errors are stamps which have mistakes in color, perforation or design. Freaks are stamps which show an inconsistency in their production. There are three groups of stamps listed here: misperforated freaks, imperforate errors and missing color errors. Misperforated freaks are stamps with perforations falling within the boundaries of the stamp’s design,

$

rather than in the margins, usually caused by simple mechanical problems. With imperforate errors the perforation stage of production is completely omitted. The presence of a single mark from perforating machinery would disqualify it as a true error. This happens rarely and usually involves human error. Use This List to Expand Your Collection Many collectors are unfamiliar with this important field of stamp collecting. Set your collection apart from the rest by taking advantage of this fine selection of freak and error stamps. Many offers include the normal stamp FREE! Display them side by side in your album. When displayed in this way the error and freak is easier to spot and the stamps make the most dramatic presentation.

Expand Your Collection With Back-of-the-Book Stamps The 1912-13 Parcel Post stamps pictured below helped revolutionize the way rural Americans lived. The new postal delivery service allowed for sending and receiving items weighing 16 ounces or more through the mail. Almost any type of merchandise could be mailed Parcel Post, including chicks, baby alligators and honeybees. By giving citizens in rural areas access to goods they couldn’t get previously, the Post Office also helped the growth

of mail order giants like Sears, Roebuck and Co. and Montgomery Ward. Each stamp in the set of 12 pictures a different way of transporting or delivering mail – the 20¢ denomination is the first stamp in the world to picture an airplane. Confusion arose because the entire set was printed in red ink and the stamps were difficult to tell apart, leading officials to discontinue their use after just one year.

War Savings Stamps Helped Fund First World War War Savings stamps were issued by the Treasury Department. Several organizations, including the U.S. Post Office, sold War Savings stamps to help fund World War I. The program’s success reflects the role of Americans in supporting the war effort. Small imperfections make these stamps affordable without detracting from their collectibility.

You’ll get close-up images of the aircraft and battleships that helped the Allies overcome the Axis powers. The stamp sheet from Dominica commemorates the end of the war in Europe.

Interesting Stamps Created by Stamp-Collecting President Roosevelt A Rare Opportunity... Own “Farley’s Follies” in Seldom-Seen Formats Collecting stamp position blocks and pairs from the legendary “Farley’s Follies” issues is fun and rewarding. It’s an unusual opportunity to own scarce stamps with a neat stamp story! We’ve put together a large listing to make it easy to get stamps from this special period in U.S. stamp history. Why Collect Farley Blocks and Pairs? Each of the formats shown on this page can be difficult to find – “Farley’s Follies” were issued in large sheets that are way too big to fit in stamp albums. So smart collectors snapped up blocks and pairs in a variety of formats instead. They not only fit, but these key formats are an easy way to understand the stamp printing process. What Are Farley’s Follies? In 1933, U.S. Postmaster General James A. Farley unwittingly created true stamp rarities. He removed several first-run commemorative sheets from the presses before they were gummed and perforated, giving them to President Franklin Roosevelt (an avid stamp collector) and other government officials. When some of those rarities later made it to auction, stamp collectors were outraged. In response, FDR ordered all 20 issues involved to be reprinted in ungummed imperforate condition in quantities large enough to satisfy collector demand. Interestingly, Kenneth A. Wood, in This is Philately, tells us

the British stamp firm Gibbons termed the reprint “nauseous prostitution,” and at first refused to list the issues in their famous stamp catalog! Scarce and Valuable Collectibles Seventy-nine years after they were issued, these historic sheets give you a chance to collect scarce stamp formats in mint condition. (All are hard to find – some occur only once in every stamp sheet.) We’ve included illustrations and descriptions of the stamp terms on this page along with special money-saving offers. Start a new collection or fill gaps in your existing collection with our extensive list. Own a scandalous slice of U.S. postal history – order your Farley’s Follies now. Important Note: The terms “vertical” and “horizontal” refer to the direction in which guidelines and gutters run, not to the position of the stamps. The Perfect Home for Your Farley’s Follies Collection Mystic’s illustrated album pages have spaces to display these seldom-seen formats and the interesting stories behind the Farley’s Follies stamps. Fits Heirloom binder also offered below.

V-shaped “arrows” are printed in the margins of stamp sheets as guides for cutting the sheet of 200 stamps into panes of 50 during stamp production. Arrow blocks are four stamps showing the V-shaped arrow and sheet margin. Four arrow blocks are found on full sheets of 200 stamps, one each on the top, bottom, left, and right of the sheet.

Cross Gutter Block “Gutters” are the margins between panes in a full sheet of stamps. Cross Gutter Blocks are four stamps connected by a horizontal gutter intersecting with a vertical gutter. This format is the scarcest of the gutter varieties.

Vertical Gutter Pair A gutter pair consists of two stamps straddling a wide margin called a “gutter.” Here the gutter is vertical and the stamps horizontal. #752 was printed in sheets of 400 on a rotary press. The other 5 pairs are from small souvenir sheets printed 9, 20 or 25 to a sheet on a flat plate press. The gutter pair is made up of two stamps from adjoining souvenir sheets, with the gutter between the two souvenir sheets.

Horizontal Gutter Pair Horizontal gutter pairs are two stamps straddling a wide margin between the top of one stamp and the bottom of another. Each stamp is from a different pane on the stamp sheet.

Vertical Line Pair Vertical line pairs are two stamps with the guide line printed vertically between them. Running from top to bottom on the uncut stamp sheet, this line separates the panes of 50. So each pair is from two different panes! Vertical line pairs are hard to find.

Horizontal Line Pair Horizontal line pairs are two stamps with the printed guide line running horizontally between them. Running from side to side, this guide line also separates the panes of 50 on the uncut stamp sheet, creating pairs with each stamp coming from two different panes. These pairs are scarce – only 6 or 14 come from a full sheet of 200 stamps.

U.S. Souvenir Sheets are always popular with collectors – and difficult to find. They are sheets of stamps printed in small groups, or special stamps honoring a specific person or event. Usually they are available at only a few post offices nationwide. Issue quantities are much lower than for other stamps – often less than 1% of a normal commemorative.

Preserve and Beautify Your Stamps with Mystic Mounts What Are Mounts? Mounts are clear sleeves in which stamps are inserted before being attached to album pages. Why Use Mounts? Acid-free, archival-quality mounts beautify, as well as protect, your stamp collection. With mounts you can place each stamp in your album without harming its gum. Best of all, you can remove your stamps any time you

please without damaging them. The mounts on this page have a black background and clear, no-glare face to display your collection to its best advantage. How Do I Choose Mounts? Several common sizes of U.S. stamps with water-activated gum are pictured below with the appropriate size mounts. To find the mount size you need, place your water-

activated-gum stamp over the stamps pictured. If your stamp matches one of these, use the order number below it to order the mounts to fit that stamp. If you have stamp sizes not found below, or if you have self-adhesive-gummed stamps on backing paper, measure them (in inches or millimeters) and select the appropriate mount from the lists at the bottom of this page. Self-adhesive stamps generally may require slightly larger mounts.

Add the striking 12¢ Washington stamp to your collection in postally used condition. Used during America’s devastating Civil War, this noteworthy stamp is history you hold in your hands. At the outbreak of the Civil War, all U.S. stamps in print were rendered invalid for postage. New U.S. stamps were issued for the Union – including U.S. #69. Intricate Dramatic black 12¢ scrollwork – intended to discourage counterfeits – adds to the Washington beauty of this classic stamp. U.S. #69 can be difficult to find – it was issued 152 years ago in relatively low quantities. And the face value – equal to about $20 in today’s wages – surely made the stamp unobtainable for many collectors faced with the uncertainty of a prolonged war. Be sure your collection boasts this classic U.S. stamp – order now. 69 1861 12¢ Washington, Black, Used, U.S. ..................................................$140.00

“Sin Tax” Revenues – A Seldom-Seen Area of Collecting

In 1862 – in the midst of the Civil War – Congress began creating new taxes to help pay for the war. They were typically added to products considered “sinful” – such as tobacco and alcohol. Stamps proving the tax had been paid – “taxpaids” – began in 1868 for tobacco products. They were more formally known as “excise taxes.” This was just one

way government revenue was raised on these products. Special Tax Stamps and taxpaid stamps often had an intricate design. To avoid fraud, security threads were embedded in the paper. They were also given serial numbers. Many of the early tobacco stamps were similar to currency – unsurprising, considering some of the same companies

Scarce Newspaper Stamps 1875-1897 Newspaper stamps were only in use between 1865 and 1898. Today these stamps from the past are difficult to find – each is well over 100 years old. In fact, we have a hard time finding enough stamps for our collectors because they were sold to publishers, not the public. Attached to bundles of newspapers and magazines, most of the stamps were thrown away with the wrappings – making them among America’s rarest stamps. Virtually all of the stamps that survive – including those available below – have small imperfections. Because Newspaper and Periodical stamps were issued for use on bulk packages, the first stamps were especially large and colorful, so they could be spotted easily by Scott #

Overprints – An Affordable Piece of U.S. History America’s overseas influence grew around the turn of the 20th century. Overprints are a symbol of expansion beyond our borders. U.S. stamps were overprinted for use in Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Guam when we gained possession in 1898. China opened it ports to trade, and overprints were used to process U.S. mail.

The experts at Mystic have detected small imperfections in the stamps listed on this page. Often just a tiny thin or tear, these imperfections don’t distract from the stamps’ beauty or collectability, but save you money. See page 24 for Back-of-the-book album pages.

U.S. Stamps Bearing Puerto Rico Overprints Are Hard to Find Although it lasted less than six months, the Spanish-American War marked the emergence of the United States as a world power. On December 10, 1898, Spain signed the treaty of Paris granting Cuba its freedom and ceding Guam, Puerto Rico and Philippines to the U.S. After the signing of the treaty the use of U.S. money and postage was made official, and in 1899 overprinted U.S. stamps replaced the provisional issues used previously. These Puerto Rico overprints carried the inscription “Porto Rico.” The scarce stamps available here are from the first issue of 1899. These stamps have minor imperfections. Order today. Order By

Guam overprints were in use for a short time and not many were produced. In fact, the two highest-value denominations were available in such small quantities, there weren’t enough for each of the 9,000 residents to own one. In 1898, the Pacific island of Guam became a territory of the U.S. The Navy arrived in August 1899 and set up a postal service aboard ship. Eleven denominations of U.S. stamps were overprinted “GUAM” for use on the island. When postal services were established in 1901, the overprints were replaced with regular U.S. stamps. G4 Lincoln Get these seldom seen stamps for your collection and save. These stamps were overprinted over a century ago, and they’ve gotten some small imperfections (like a thin or tear) over the years.

Build a Complete Collection of Sought-After U.S. Shanghai Overprints – Even Scarce Postally Used Stamps! In 1919, U.S. stamps were overprinted at double their face value to be used in the port of Shanghai. Stamp buyers could purchase non-overprinted stamps with U.S. currency or use undervalued Chinese currency to buy the overprints. Most customers bought the non-overprinted stamps. That’s why postally used Shanghai overprint stamps are so scarce. (Stamps have one or two minor imperfections.) Order By

Hawaii: The KingdomThat Became A U.S. State

In 1778, Captain James Cook of the British Navy discovered the Hawaiian Islands. Although the Islands remained independent under the rule of King Kamehameha and his successors, by the 1840s, many American missionaries and traders had settled on the Islands. Soon, a postal system was needed to handle the increased quantity of mail being sent home to the U.S. A treaty of friendship in 1849 established postal provisions, and two years later, Hawaii began issuing its own distinctive postage stamps. Now you can add Hawaii stamps to your collection. The stamps picture various kings, queens and other members of the royal family. Stamps honor historic monarchs such as

Kamehameha III, Hawaii’s longest-ruling monarch and Kalakaua (the “Merrie Monarch” who wrote Hawaii’s state song and was the last reigning king). Number H57 honors Queen Liliuokalani, Hawaii’s last ruling monarch, whose reign was overthrown – leading to Hawaii’s annexation to the United States. Hawaii was made a U.S. territory on June 14, 1900, and U.S. postage stamps were put into use. Then in 1959, Hawaii became our 50th state. Now a special opportunity to document this state’s former independent status. Hawaii stamps are surprisingly affordable – considering just how scarce they really are. So order yours now.

Collect Official Stamps – Never Available at the Post Office Prior to 1873, departments of the United States government had the privilege of sending mail without postage, as long as the envelope bore an authorized signature. This practice was discontinued with the

July 1 issue of the first Official stamps. Because these stamps were printed strictly for official use, they were produced in very low quantities. As a result, Official stamps are both scarce and desirable today. Order No.

Now You Can Own the Only U.S. Registration Stamp Ever Issued Get the expertly engraved U.S. #F1, often overlooked by collectors. That’s unfortunate – this 102-year-old stamp is one of the most beautifully designed stamps and is featured in the 100 Greatest U.S. Stamps book. Issued for use on registered mail, the only registration stamp issued by the U.S. promised special care and handling in exchange for an extra fee. Confusion leading to misuse followed and no more were produced after 1913. Never demonetized, the stamp is still valid for postage! Add this essential U.S. stamp to your collection in your choice of mint or postally used conditions.
