Own Set of 3 Scarce & Desirable                1898 Trans-Mississippi Stamps

The Trans-Mississippi stamps of 1898 are among the scarcest and most desirable of all U.S. stamps.  They were only the second U.S. commemorative series and were produced in conjuction with the 1898 Trans-Mississippi and International Exposition.  The Exposition was held to further the progress and development of resources west of the Mississippi River.  Since the Exposition was held in Omaha, Nebraska, these stamps were nicknamed the "Omahas."

Originally Intended as Bi-Colored Stamps

When the die proofs were made for the Trans-Mississippi stamps, they were produced in two colors for each stamp (black and a second color).  However, the Spanish-American War broke out in April of 1898, and the time and manpower necessary for two-color printing was not available.  So the stamps have only a single color as listed.
