You Can Own 1873 U.S. Department of Navy Officials
Now you can own four used 1873 Navy Official stamps and enjoy their proud history. Act now and you’ll save off Mystic’s Hard to Find Stamps catalog price.
Issued in 1873 for official government use, these official stamps were used for just 11 years – and were never available to the public. Now #O35-38 are part of a popular collecting trend known as military postal history.
The U.S. Navy predates the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution. It grew significantly during the late 1800s – ready to defend American interests in Samoa, Hawaii, Venezuela and Cuba. You’ll love exploring the cancellations and imagining the important communications it might have carried!
As you might expect, these stamps have minor flaws that save you money.
