The first proper postage stamps in North America were issued by the Postmaster of New York, two years before the first United States General Issue stamps. This exhibit provides a comprehensive study of these ”Postmaster Provisionals”, including both the stamps – essays and proofs, used and unused, different papers and signatures – and their postal history context. The exhibit is shown as a pdf file.
Stefan Heijtz has kindly agreed to make his exhibits available on Netex. They can also be seen on his own website.
