Writing up 14¢ American Indian stamps & covers once again
As I mentioned in a prior blog post, I recently discovered tucked away in my binder of 14¢ American Indian stamps no fewer than eight covers and parcel fragments that I had acquired over the past two or three years but never gotten around to researching. I filed those away, and at long last, I’ve finally begun writing up that material for my online exhibit, 14 Cents: the American Indian Stamp.
In both cases, the 14¢ American Indian stamp appears to have paid the majority of the 15¢ registration fee, which was not part of the “free” mailing privileges indicated by the handstamped or typewritten penalty statements.
I presume both packages would have contained navigational records or research of some sort, but if you have specifics on what might have been enclosed, I would certainly like to know more!
