#669-79 – 1929 Nebraska Overprint, collection of 11stamps

Nebraska Overprint Stamps – Only Sold for One Year
Post Office hold-ups were common in Kansas and Nebraska during the 1920s. Robbers stole stamps and took them to other states to sell!  In 1929, overprinted stamps were experimented with in hopes of making it more difficult for stolen stamps to be sold. However, unaware postal workers often refused the overprints as valid postage.  The public complained, and once the existing supply was used, the trial program was stopped.
The complete set of 11 Nebraska Overprint stamps features designs of the Series of 1922-25 overprinted with “Nebr.”  Some of the Nebraska Overprint stamps were printed in quantities as low as 530,000, including the valuable 9¢ Thomas Jefferson stamp (U.S. #678).
