Arago: 25-cent Orange Yellow

25-cent Orange Yellow

The 25-cent Globe and Wing stamp (Scott C30) was issued on August 16, 1958, as one of a five-stamp issue intended to cover the new airmail rate on letters to Europe.

First day covers, usually produced by the local cachet artist Elmer Smith, appear, and this stamp is usually seen fulfilling its intended task on letters addressed to Europe. However, even these are not often seen, and usages with other stamps in a make-up rate situation are particularly uncommon.
