1898 SC 178 (a) Cuba stamp, 2 cents inverted surcharge used
This Cuba stamp is one of the rare stamp named after in which they were issued, Puerto Principe. Because of high value of these stamps a large number of fakes has been detected. We have tried to expertize these stamps and have found several instances in which "experts", (that charge up to $25 for expertize each stamp) have rendered different opinions as to the legitimacy of the same stamp.
In view of the above we have opted for offering these stamps for sale at fraction of the catalog price, without any guaranty as to legitimacy, and as final sale, no returns.
