VERY FINE AND CHOICE. ONLY FIFTEEN FIRST DAY COVERS ARE KNOWN BEARING A COMPLETE SET OF THE PAN-AMERICAN ISSUE. THIS IS THE ONLY RECORDED COVER TO FINLAND.

In an article in the June 1999 issue of First Days, Alan Berkun records eleven covers bearing complete sets of the Pan-American Issue, including four from the District of Columbia, four from Massachusetts, two from New York and one from Seattle, Washington (sold in our 2001 Rarities sale). An additional four covers, including this one, have been added to the census. A total of six are used from Washington D.C., including four to Germany and one to Switzerland; this is the only one addressed to Finland. The others have stamps arranged in the same configuration and New York registry numbers in the same range (19447, 19452, 19458, 19468 and 19474).
