Cuba 1899 - Sc W1 - EDIFIL 67 - Used Newspaper Wrapper.
1 centavos green on buff, 140x265mm, watermarked "US POD 99" newspaper wrapper used within Havana, addressed to "Apartado 118". Indicium cancelled with rectangular HABANA - CLASE (4TA?) handstamp applied in black. In great condition; no tears or loss of paper whatsoever. This is an extremely rare item in used condition, of which we have seen only this one in many, many years. EDIFIL prices it at € 50,- ($ US 70.00). In our opinion, this price is not in line with the extreme scarcity of this item.
