Arago: 3-cent Puerto Rico Issue

Up
3-cent Puerto Rico Issue

The third stamp to commemorate U. S. territories, the 3-cent bright violet stamp issued on November 25, 1937, honored Puerto Rico. The design features the old Governor's Palace known as 'La Fortaleza'. The issue confused the public, some of whom thought the stamp was valid only in Puerto Rico. It was in fact valid throughout the U.S. and its territories.
