2¢ Farming in the West - US #286 Unused
Save over 40% off our regular price!
One of America's most popular and attractive sets of commemorative stamps was issued at the 1898 Trans-Mississippi Exposition in Omaha, Nebraska, and offered finely-engraved glimpses of places and events from pioneer days in the American West. The design of "Farming in the West" was taken from a photograph of a plowing scene in Amenia, North Dakota. Seconds before the photographer snapped this picture, a gust of wind blew the hat off the farmer on the plow, and in grabbing his hat he covered his face. For years the farmer regretted this unfortunate incident that prevented his face from appearing on a stamp.
This unused 2¢ issue may have minor imperfections such as disturbed gum, a bend or a straight edge, but it will be an attractive stamp with fine or better centering and a welcome addition to your collection - plus you save $16 off our regular price! And as always, your satisfaction is guaranteed. (US #286)
