Get Classic U.S. 1869 Pictorial Stamps
Own this special collector's set of six historic 1869 Pictorial stamps. These revolutionary stamps were the precursor to U.S. commemoratives! The 1869 Pictorials were the first U.S. stamps to feature something other than the bust or head of a famous American leader. Never before had U.S. stamps featured paintings, horses or two-color designs. Printed by the American Bank Note Company, they're the only stamps with the "G" grill pattern.
As you might expect of stamps over 140 years old, these six will have minor flaws which do not detract from their beauty or collectibility but do save you over $400 off Mystic's U.S. Stamp Catalog price.
