Civil War-Very Scarce Postage Stamp from the Great Central Sanitary Fair #1284

These stamps were not issued by the US Government, but rather as fund raisers at the post office at the Sanitary Fair. Some years ago we acquired and sold a really wonderful collection of Sanitary Fair postage stamps and very rare admission/season tickets, some of which we sold via Heritage Auctions. I still look for other examples of both the stamps and the tickets, but rarely find any.
