    Rarely Seen Unused 1944 Letter Sheet

    The Geneva Convention rules concerning treatment of prisoners of war allowed Americans to send letters postage-free to Allied prisoners of war held in enemy nations.  During World War II, the U.S. War Department printed special letter sheets which were distributed to local post offices and Red Cross chapters for citizens to use.  The letters were forwarded to the Red Cross in Geneva, where they would be distributed to the prison camps in enemy nations.  This version was printed in late 1944 and in use briefly before the end of the war.  It is a great addition to your World War II collection.  Sold elsewhere for up to $20!  Measures 5¼" x 12½", ships folded.

  4. Italian Occupation of Tripoli

    Italian Occupation of Tripoli

    1915 Mint Never-Hinged Stamp from Early Libya

    We discovered this amazing “Tipoli di Barberia” overprint on the 1-centesimo Italian stamp for use in Tripoli on the Barbary Coast of Libya.  This was the last stamp overprinted for use in Italy's African territories, as their troops were urgently needed to defend Italy as World War I was spreading throughout Europe.

    You may recall the verse "From the Halls of Montezuma to the Shores of Tripoli" from our Marine Corps Hymn.  It refers to the First Barbary War of 1805 where the U.S. Navy fought against the Barbary Coast pirates.
