Get a Complete Collection of 1935 National Parks Single Stamps

This is your chance to get all 10 National Parks single stamps issued in 1935.  These stamps were re-printings of the popular 1934 National Parks Issue and part of the infamous “Farley’s Follies.”  Read on to discover the stories behind these stamps…

The 1934 National Parks Issue

As a stamp collector, President Franklin D. Roosevelt personally oversaw the selection of stamp subjects and designs during his administration.  As Roosevelt was reviewing suggestions for the 1934 schedule, Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes saw an opportunity to advertise the national park system.  Ickes felt many Americans were unaware the federal government had set aside vast amounts of land for their enjoyment and for future generations.  At his suggestion, 1934 had been declared National Parks Year.  Ickes now proposed the legacy of the national parks be portrayed on postage stamps to give people a glimpse of their diversity and natural beauty.  FDR approved the idea immediately, and ten parks were chosen, each to be pictured on a different denomination ranging from 1¢ to 10¢.

Farley’s Follies

In 1933, Postmaster General James A. Farley began removing several stamp sheets from the printing presses before they were gummed or perforated.  He autographed these sheets (which were not available to the public) and gave them to colleagues and family, creating precious philatelic rarities.  Stamp collectors were outraged when they discovered what had happened.

In 1935, the Post Office came up with a solution – the reissue in sheet form of all the stamps issued since March 4, 1933, in imperforate, ungummed condition, and in sufficient numbers to satisfy public demand.  Among those stamps re-issued ungummed and imperforate were the National Parks issues.

With this convenient offer, you’ll get all 10 of the 1935 ungummed imperforate stamps in one easy order.  You’ll save time and money over ordering the individual stamps.
