Arago: 4-cent Gaillard Cut

4-cent Gaillard Cut

The 4-cent stamp (Scott C6) of this series was issued on January 3, 1949, and was used principally on airmail postcards to the United States to fulfill a rate that remained valid through July 31, 1958. In all, some 535,000 copies were printed.

Other than usages on a postcard, the 4-cent Gaillard Cut stamp is often found in combination with other stamps for any number of combinations of rates, services (such as registry and special delivery), and destinations, all of which are very collectible. A considerable number of first day covers were also prepared by several individuals and companies.
