Philippines "Guam Guard Mail" Overprints

Issued in Limited Quantities –                      Few Collectors Can Own a Complete Set!

Guam became a possession of the United States at the end of the Spanish-American War.  As a result, the United States Post Office Department took over mail delivery to and from the Pacific island.  However, no local mail delivery existed on the island.  So on April 8, 1930, the military governor of Guam created the service.  Scott #M3-4 were issued in July to prepay the postage rate.  Because quantities of #M3-4 were limited, two Philippines stamps were issued and overprinted "Guam Guard Mail" on August 21, 1930 (Scott #M5 and #M6).  Five new overprints – Scott #M7-11 – were issued on December 29, 1930. These stamps were printed in low quantities – at the time of printing, one design only had 25,000 copies made.  So only 25,000 complete sets of Philippines "Guam Guard Mail" overprints could ever have existed.  After over 80 years, there are far fewer in existence today.  Add this stamp to your collection today and you're one step closer to becoming one of the few collectors able to own a complete set of these stamps.  You may never get another chance, so act quickly to avoid disappointment.
