Get the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Special Collectors Set and SAVE With this special offer you can get the 1¢ through 10¢ 1898 Trans-Mississippi stamps with one easy order – you’ll save time and money. 

The Trans-Mississippi stamps of 1898 are among the scarcest and most sought-after of all U.S. issues.  They were produced in conjunction with the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition, whose purpose was to further the progress and development of natural resources west of the Mississippi River.

All the stamps are based on original paintings, photos, and drawings by such renowned artists as Frederick Remington, famed artist of the American West. These stamps are considered by many to have the finest engraving of any issue!

Although this was supposed to be a 2-color series, the Spanish-American War broke out in April of 1898.  The time and manpower needed for 2-color printing was not available. A few short months later, on December 31, 1898, distribution of the stamps was halted.  All unsold quantities were recalled and destroyed.  Today, the Trans-Mississippi stamps may be even scarcer than is commonly believed!

The 1898 Trans-Mississippi stamps will be important additions to your collection – order yours right away.
