Cuba 1910 - EDIFIL 91 Used Newspaper Wrapper. The 1 centavo green on buff newspaper wrapper of 1910 used from Havana to El Paso, Texas, USA. Indicium cancelled with rare boxed HAVANA CUBA handstamp applied in black. In outstanding condition for these, that are almost always found in poor condition, with pieces missing, etc. This is an incredibly rare item in used condition, of which we have seen only this one in many, many years. The 2012 EDIFIL catalogue value is € 200.00 or around US $ 260.00 at the current rte of exchange. But we think that the EDIFIL catalogue value is not consistent with the enormous rarity of this wrapper.
