A total of 173 4c Pan-American Invert stamps were distributed by the Third Assistant Postmaster General's office, and an additional 97 were traded by the National Museum. The majority of stamps distributed by the Post Office Department had the "Specimen" overprint, but some did not (at least 23). The stamp offered here is one of the few we have encountered in choice condition; most are in shockingly poor condition, the result of rough handling over many years.
