USPS STAMP POSTER - the EARLY YEARS
USPS Stamp Poster SP148 - Scott Page #SP148.
The stamp is Scott #1283, the 5c George Washington stamp.
Excellent condition, having been neatly folded in 3 places.
These EARLY STAMP POSTERS were printed by the U.S. Gov't Printing Office. First issued in 1959, they were intended to be hung (usually with Scotch Tape or thumb tacks!) in Post Offices as a notice of upcoming releases.
When stamp collectors learned of their existence the USPOD established a service for selling them thru the Philatelic Agency. They were sold mint, usually folded in 3rds, and it fell to the collector to get them First Day Cancelled. Thus, many different combinations of stamps exist on these pages.
Scott calls these "Unofficial" Souvenir Pages. This is a terrible name; you can't get much more official than these. The price listed in Scott is for FOLDED posters; UNFOLDED posters command a premium...which can be a little or a lot, depending on the issue.
PLEASE NOTE: For these early Stamp Posters, "excellent" does not mean "perfect". Too many hands were involved in the making of these Posters. A MINOR dent, ding, crease or slighly blunt corner here or there is to be expected.

If you buy several lots, please load up the Shopping Cart and pay ONCE, when you're finished ordering.
Please Don't Pay After Each Lot.
Postage for multiple lots is always discounted; you'll never pay more than the actual shipping charges.
If you're buying several lots and the Hip checkout system hands you a postage bill which is off the charts, you can either:
1. Request a total from me BEFORE you pay (in which case I can dig into their system and adjust the postage charge).... or
2. Just pay the whole thing, and when I fill your order, I'll adjust the charges and send you a refund.
I'm a dinosaur on the internet, making my customers happy the old-fashioned way, just as i've done thru the mail since 1971.

OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS, please don't ask me to misrepresent the value of your order so you can avoid import fees or the V.A.T..
All small, "flat" shipments - stamps, cinderella items, postal stationery, postal history and first dav covers - will be shipped in a _calumet_ hard cardboard mailer. (see the scan at the right.) this mailer offers much greater protection than bubble wrap, and is only a little heavier and more costly to ship.
Larger items will be shipped in corrugated mailers.
If you buy several lots, the shipping charges will be reduced. See the WHITE PRINT above for details.
U.S. SHIPPING CHARGES for this item are $3.75 for a USPS First Class Package. Insurance is FREE.
WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CHARGES for this item are roughly:
$11.00 for an International First Class Package to Canada
$12.00 for an international first class package to mexico
$14.00 for an international first class package to the rest of the world.
A FINAL WORD - ABOUT MY SCANS: What you get will be BETTER than what you see! Computer scans often show darker or lighter areas which aren't on the actual item, and the larger the object to be scanned, the more areas will be affected. Plus, I scan using a "cover sheet" to hold the item in place, and the plastic cover can creates glare. And, I often use shortcuts because I just don't have the time to scan every item I sell; I sometimes have to recycle an old scan to illustrate a new item.
ALWAYS GO WITH THE DESCRIPTION! Your item may look a LITTLE different from the scan, but it will match the description 100%.....and it will ALWAYS be a top-quality item. My feedback on Hip speaks for itself.
