The first two series of United States Air Post issues, Scott C1-C6, are among the most recognizable U.S. stamps. They were printed in relatively small quantities compared to later issues -- Scott C5 saw just over 5.3 million stamps issued, versus over 42 million for Scott C7. C5 is also one of the most difficult of the series to obtain in such a high grade, based on Population Report numbers.
