WCE 1893-Group 3 Unused Original 1893 Columbian US Stamps 1,2,5 Cents
Outstanding group of 3 brand new unused Columbian stamps. One has original gum, one no gum and one remnants of a hinge. Color is outstanding and the three retail at $15 to $25 each we're offering the group at less than half that amount. The prices for Columbian stamps increase as they increase in face value, but those 10 cents and below are quite reasonably priced; they began rising steadily after that, no doubt because they were printed in quantities progressively lower as the face value increased. There was little call for more than the lowest denominations.
