This set of 3 stamps was the third issue of US Airmail stamps and were issued in 1926. The Act of Congress of February 2, 1925 set new rates for Airmail delivery. They were 10 cents per ounce for distances up to 1000 miles. 15 cents per ounce for 1500 miles and 20 cents for more than 1500 miles. This set has become known as the "Map and Planes" issued because the design has a map of the United States and Two Mail Planes on each coast of the US. They were only issued for 3 years since the rate was changed again in 1928 to 5 cents an ounce for domestic airmail service.
The Scott Catalog numbers for this set is #C7, C8 and C9. They are MINT NEVER HINGED on the gum side and post office fresh. Great addition to your collection or can be matted and framed for display.
I do my best to keep shipping charges to a minimum while keeping it simple. For most orders there is a fixed rate which applies to the first item and a small additional charge is added for additional items if you are buying a themed stamp item.
Other store items such as ceramics, vintage items, etc they have individual shipping prices that are based on the weight involved.
Your order will be shipped within 3 days of payment as a general rule but may take longer if I happen to be traveling which doesn't happen that often. If there is going to be a delay I will notify you. Custom orders will take longer if in the event I need to obtain stamps from other sources. I will keep in contact with you on the progress of custom orders and their expected shipping date.
Your order will be mailed to the mailing address provided by Etsy unless you request otherwise. Vintage postage stamps will be used to mail your order also.
Orders will be shipped by First Class mail unless you request expedited mailing by Priority Mail or Express mail at an additional cost.
I accept Credit Cards through Etsy, Paypal, personal checks, and money orders for payment. Payment is expected within 5 days of placing your order. If for some reason there is a need for delay please contact me. If I don't hear from you or receive payment within 5 days your order will be canceled.
