SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD - Cuba 1874 - The rare "Cuba Libra" imperforate stamps of 1874 in unused, never hinged horizontal pairs.
These stamps were issued in 1874 by order of Marcos Morales, leader of the Cuban Junta in Philadelphia, that was fighting for Cuba's independence from Spain. It was the first time that the Cuban flag would appear in a "postage" stamp. They were issued for the purpose of raising funds for the revolution. However, the stamps were never used because there was an error in the spelling and the intended "Cuba Libre" (Cuba Free) was misspelled as "Cuba Libra" (Cuba Pound). Stamps are mint never hinged and the gum is very lightly toned. Exceptionally well cut, with very close to perfect margins all around, which is rare for these stamps. Not listed in either Scott, EDIFIL or the J. L. Guerra catalogues. LAST SET IN STOCK!!!
