Arago: 10-cent Transport Plane

10-cent Transport Plane

Issued August 15, 1941, the 10-cent value was the second in the Transport Plane Series. It was the identical design to the 6-cent value but in a violet color. This stamp paid the international airmail rate of ten-cents-per-half-ounce then in effect to Mexico, parts of Central America, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and a few western Caribbean nations, including Bermuda. The 10-cent transport stamp was also conveniently used in combination with other stamps to pay higher international airmail rates—for example adding a 10-cent Transport to a 50-cent stamp to pay the sixty-cent-per-half-ounce airmail rate to West Africa.
