Cuba 1954 - Sc 532-33, Christmas stamps on a cacheted, unaddressed FDC
The 1954 stamps issued to celebrate the 1954-55 Christmas holiday on a Lily cacheted unaddressed First Day Cover. There is some slight toning on the cover that can be seen in the picture. By the way, the reason why these stamps are inscribed 1954 - NAVIDADES - 1955 is not that they were issued to be used on two consecutive Christmas holidays, but on the same Christmas holiday. This reflects the fact that Cuban kids get presents (or at least used to, unfortunately) from Santa Claus on the morning of December 25th (of 1954 in this case) and again, from the Three Kings on the morning of January 6th (of 1955 in this case) so the Christmas celebration extended from December 25th to January 6th of the next year. Cuban kids were very lucky back then, but unfortunately not so much nowadays. The 2012 EDIFIL catalogue value is 19,- or around US $ 27.00 at the current rate of exchange.
