Own Scarce U.S. #2 with Wide Margins on Cover
Only 1 Available – Get Yours Now!
America’s first postage stamps went on sale July 1, 1847 – marking a new era in mail service. As an important “first,” the 10¢ Washington (U.S. #2) is among the most desirable of all U.S. stamps.
U.S. #2 is more than four times scarcer than U.S. #1. Just 891,000 U.S. #2 stamps were distributed to Post Offices. Even fewer reached the public’s hands. Of course, not all of the stamps were saved – so the number of collectors who can own it is much smaller than that.
Scarce in Any Condition – Especially with Wide Margins
These stamps were issued in large sheets without perforations. Postal clerks simply cut the stamps away from the sheet by hand. Often the clerks snipped away in a rather haphazard fashion, too busy in their work to consider what their carelessness would mean to future stamp collectors. Because the clerk’s scissors frequently cut into the design of the stamp, very few stamps were left with ample margins intact, like the one offered here on cover.
Imagine the journey this stamp and cover have made. What message it carried... if it traveled by horseback or stagecoach... and why it was saved for posterity. Fortunately for us, it was carefully preserved – and now it’s your turn to hold and protect it for future generations.
U.S. #2 is difficult to find in any condition. In spite of Mystic’s purchasing power, I have only one U.S. #2 stamp available with wide margins on cover for our entire family of collectors. Now you can add this gem to your collection for $4,500 or 10 interest-free payments of $450 each.
