Of the approximately 61 recorded First Day covers for this issue, only 13 are on Exposition stationery. Of these, only four have tied Exposition labels. This is certainly one of the finest recorded examples of this issue.

VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE AND DESIRABLE 2-CENT PAN-AMERICAN FIRST DAY COVER WITH A PAIR USED ON AN ILLUSTRATED EXPOSITION COVER.

EXTREMELY FINE AND LIKELY UNIQUE. A SPECTACULAR EXAMPLE OF THE PERF 11 5-CENT ROSE ERROR IN A BLOCK OF NINE, USED ON COVER AND TIED BY PERFECTLY STRUCK FANCY CANCELS.
According to the updated census of 5c Red error covers published by Kevin G. Lowther in 2012 in The United States Specialist, only four or five with blocks of nine containing the single error are known. No covers are known with the double error. This is in all likelihood unique with the fancy cancels, and it is the most visually appealing cover with the 5c error we have encountered.
With 2009 PF certificate.
VERY FINE. AN EXCEEDINGLY RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1922 ONE-CENT ROTARY PERF 11 USED ON A POSTCARD. VERY FEW ARE KNOWN.
A small quantity of 1c Rotary Press stamps was perforated 11 at the end of 1922, using remainder sheets from the earlier printings that were normally perforated in 10 gauge or 10/11 compound gauge. Its existence as a Perf 11 variety was discovered in 1936, and the stamp received its Scott Catalogue listing in 1938.
The beautiful design side of the postcard reads "A new year wish. May you have good luck and always be in clover." Fewer than 20 on-cover examples have been certified by the Philatelic Foundation as well as a handful by A.P.S.
