Canal Zone Postal Stationery

 

We use both Scotts and UPSS (United Postal Stationery Society) catalog numbers. UPSS #s are in parentheses!! The primary UPSS listings are from: The Postal Stationery of the Canal Zone, Available from the UPSS, but we are working on getting some.

 

Email: CZCD@twcny.rr.com. Our postal stationary list is completely revamped, with new, more detailed descriptions. It’s big!!  Thank you to all our customers for their past confidence. Please join the CZSG if you haven’t already!

IMPORTANT! Condition:

XF = fresh; no folds, creases or soiling from handling. VF = clean; no creases, bends or soiling. F/VF = little soiling/dinginess from wear; minimal bends but no creases. F+ = light soiling/toning from use and storage; bends as appropriate from usage. VG = grubbines, some bends or creases as described.

 

CANAL ZONE POSTAL STATIONERY

All are mint unless otherwise noted.

 

UPSS numbers in parentheses from the 1985 Postal Stationery Catalog of CZ.,  available at $10 postpaid.

COLLECTING BY SCOTT NUMBER? Just buy the lowest cost variety with the same Scott catalog number, ignoring UPSS number.
