Issued in 1913, expertly engraved Parcel Post issues capture the romance of days gone by.  Each pictures a different mode of transportation.  The 5¢ Mail Train pictures the specially designed car used to speed mail delivery.  Look carefully and you’ll see a mail hook with a mailbag hanging on it.  Because trains didn’t stop at every station, clerks on the train grabbed the bag as it rushed past at high speeds. Less than a year after they were issued, Parcel Post stamps were made valid for all classes of mail until their supply ran low.  Add this history to your collection – choose mint or postally used condition.
