Cuba Native Birds - Christmas 1965 Complete Set of 15

Cuba was the first nation to issue annual Christmas stamps, and also one of the first nations to issue different stamp designs in se-tenant blocks. This colorful and attractive 1965 Christmas set pictures native birds in their natural habitats in an unusual block of 6 format featuring 4 stamps uniting to form a single scene, a fifth single stamp with a bird perched on a limb, and an attached commemorative label of yuletide bells. Because of the layout of the blocks of 6 in the sheets, the single stamp and label is found either to the side or above or below the other 4 stamps. Since most of the sheets were used to mail Christmas cards, these attached blocks are less commonly found.

 Whether you're a bird lover or a collector of Christmas stamps, this interesting set belongs in your collection! (Cuba #1025-39)
