VINTAGE US STAMPS 1930's and 1940s - 1 cent to 12 cents - plus 1 penny UK stamp
Nice collection of used 1930s and 1940s US stamps. There are 21 stamps in this posting. These stamps have an interesting story. My mother-in-law, who just passed, was born in 1929. In 1940, she apparently had a school assignment to write about the US Post Office. We found this essay in her effects. On each page of the essay was a stamp, beginning with a 1 cent stamp. Each page had either one stamp or multiple stamps of each denomination from 1 cent to 12 cents. There were also some special stamps such as the Pony Express stamp, a 2 cents Washington - Mount Vernon stamp, and a 6 cents air mail stamp. Many of the stamps have a New York post mark because they had relatives there at the time. Most of the stamps have a dark area at top and bottom due to the stamps being taped on to the pages of the essay. I will list the stamps here in order going down each column starting on the left of the picture that shows all of the stamps.
