1913 Panama-Pacific Stamps

Act now to get all five 1913 Panama-Pacific Exposition stamps in one easy step. 

This commemorative stamp series was issued to publicize the upcoming 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition that was held in San Francisco. The exposition commemorated the discovery of the Pacific Ocean as well as the construction of the Panama Canal.  

The first of the Panama-Pacific commemoratives was issued on January 1, 1913 and the stamps quickly became popular with the public.  They pictured Vasco Nunez de Balboa, who discovered the Pacific Ocean in 1513, the Panama Canal, the Golden Gate, and the discovery of San Francisco Bay.

The discovery of San Francisco Bay stamp, #400, was originally printed in orange-yellow.  However, after the stamp was issued, many complained that it was too light and destroyed the elegance of the stamp’s design.  As complaints continued to mount about this color, plans were made to change it to a darker shade.

On August 25, 1913 – just over seven months after it went on sale – #400 was removed from sale and all remaining quantities were destroyed. A darker version was issued in its place, and given the number 400A. This stamp’s color was listed as orange.

This is your chance to own all five original Panama-Pacific Exposition stamps in one convenient order.  You’ll save time and money.
