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.
