Panama stamps have four different designs that pay tribute to Vasco Balboa, first European to see the
Pacific and the 1914 opening of the Panama Canal. The 5¢ stamp shows the San Francisco’s Golden Gate, site of the Panama Pacific Expo that
celebrated the 400th anniversary of Balboa’s discovery. Due to its yellow-orange color, much of the 10¢ stamp’s detail was lost,
prompting a dark-orange replacement.
Perf.12 sheets were later strengthened by a change to Perf. 10, making this variety among the scarcest 20th century _commemorative_.
Nice selection, see photo to determine condition & quality of item offered.
