Arago: 15-cent Brown Violet

15-cent Brown Violet

The 15c Globe and Wing airmail stamp (Scott C29) was intended for use on airmail postcards and aerograms to countries outside the Americas. It was issued on August 16, 1958, as part of the five-stamp series created to be used on mail sent after the new airmail rates were put into effect on August 1st.

The 15c Globe and Wing is normally seen with the other stamps of this series on cacheted first day covers by the local artist/publisher Elmer Smith. Non-philatelic usages of this stamp as a single are quite uncommon and it is not often seen even in combination with other stamps.
