VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1883 2-CENT BROWN ON WHITE ERROR OF COLOR. ONLY THREE ENTIRES ARE RECORDED.

VERY FINE. A RARE COMPLETE SET OF THE "UNIVERSAL POSTAL CONGRESS" POSTAL STATIONERY ENTIRES.
According to the Thorp book, the government overprinted the then-current series for presentation to delegates attending the Universal Postal Congress in Washington D.C. in 1897. They were presented in a cardboard box with inscription (does not accompany). Most sets have been broken, so this is a rare opportunity to acquire the complete set.
Scott Retail of $6,000.00 has not changed in a long time and does not take into consideration the different sizes.
VERY FINE. THIS IS ONE OF THE RAREST ITEMS OF POSTAL STATIONERY COLLECTING AND ONE OF THE KEYS TO A COMPLETE COLLECTION.
