VERY FINE. AN OUTSTANDING GROUP OF THE ONE-CENT TO 10-CENT PAN-AMERICAN ISSUE SHOWING DRAMATIC VIGNETTE SHIFTS.

The 1c and 2c Pan-Americans are relatively well-known with vignette shifts. However, collectors of this issue know that the higher values are extremely difficult to locate with shifts as dramatic as these.
