Arago: 8-cent Globe and Wing

Up
8-cent Globe and Wing

The last stamp of this long series, the 8-cent Globe and Wing (Scott C34) was issued on January 7, 1958, to cover the new postage rate for letters to the United States effective that date.

First day covers are quite common, with almost all of them serviced by the local cachet artist/producer Elmer Smith. Covers with the 8-cent Globe and Wing reflecting the eight-cent airmail rate are common, but this stamp used in conjunction with others is not often seen.
