LARGELY FINE-VERY FINE. AN AMAZING COLLECTION OF TRULY RARE AIR POSTS STAMPS. THIS COULD FORM THE BASIS OF A GOLD-MEDAL SINGLE FRAME EXHIBIT.

These were actually proofs of the 1928 Issue, but they were sold over the counter at the Post Office. The majority were used on flight covers. Unused examples are actually rarer than used. Only 50 copies of eight of the values were printed. The quantity of Brown Carmine & Slate Green stamps printed is unknown, but almost certainly far less than the others.

Scans of the entire collection (3.0mb) can be found at http://www.siegelauctions.com/2014/1086/pdf/2673.pdf
