Save on 1918-20 Offset Singles
During World War I, America was forced to cut costs. One of the ways we saved money was by using less expensive printing ink for stamps. This was also necessary because much of the ink originally came from Germany, an enemy at the time. The trouble with the new ink was that it was low quality and wore out printing plates too quickly.
The solution to this problem was to start using offset printing for the most common denominations. Offset stamps can be identified by their smooth surface and slightly blurred designs. You can own seven unused or nine used offset stamps and save off Mystic’s regular prices. Small imperfections don’t detract from beauty or collectability, but do allow these nice discounts.
