Cuba 1899 - Sc W2 - EDIFIL 68 - Used Newspaper Wrapper.
2 centavos carmine on buff, 140x265mm, watermarked "US POD 99" newspaper wrapper used within Havana. Indicium cancelled with rectangular HABANA CUBA handstamp applied in black. In great condition; no tears or loss of paper whatsoever. There is a horizontal fold 1 inch from the bottom, most likely caused by inserting this wrapper in a smaller than needed cover holder. The scanned picture makes this fold look much worse than it really is. In reality, it is a light fold and the paper is not separated as it seems to be in the picture. This is an extremely rare item in used condition, of which we have seen only three in many, many years. EDIFIL prices it at 80,- ($ US 112.00). In our opinion, this price is not in line with the extreme scarcity of this item.
