Get “Decalcomania” Scarce Postal History

Seldom-seen Lowenberg Plate Essay represents a neat era in stamp production.  Attempting to prevent the reuse of stamps, inventor Henry Lowenberg patented his invention, which he called “decalcomania.”  Lowenberg printed stamps on transparent onionskin paper and then applied the adhesive to the printed side.  The design showed through the paper for legitimate use – but remained “stuck” like a decal to the envelope if the stamp was removed!  Neat postal history and a real conversation piece.  The color of your stamp may vary – images represent the colors this essay was issued in.
