153 c Image1c-5c 1897 Universal Postal Congress entires (U294S-U331S). Complete set of 59 entires comprising different knives and sizes of the sixteen different designs, clear "Universal Postal Congress" overprints, immaculate condition

VERY FINE. A RARE COMPLETE SET OF THE "UNIVERSAL POSTAL CONGRESS" POSTAL STATIONERY ENTIRES.

According to the Thorp book, the government overprinted the then-current series for presentation to delegates attending the Universal Postal Congress in Washington D.C. in 1897. They were presented in a cardboard box with inscription (does not accompany). Most sets have been broken, so this is a rare opportunity to acquire the complete set.
