AN ACCEPTABLE EXAMPLE OF THE SCARCE 2-CENT PAN-AMERICAN INVERT.

The 2c is the rarest of the three Pan-American Inverts. It is surmised that approximately 200 were issued through the post office, with two distinct shades known. Our Levi records contain the intact block (4), reconstructed block (4), 64 unused singles and 6 used singles, for a total of 72 unused and 6 used.

Scott Catalogue notes that "Values are for examples with full original gum that is slightly disturbed".

1955 og Image4c Pan-American, Center Inverted (296a). Large part disturbed original gum, pretty shade, light crease at bottom, tiny tears at top and bottom, few toned perfs at top

FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT PAN-AMERICAN INVERT.

The 4c stamp portrays an electric automobile, known at the time as the "Electric Vehicle Service," as depicted on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad brochure from which the engraving was made. In the background one can see the dome of the Capitol. The two men depicted in the front seat are both chauffeurs. The man in the passenger compartment is Samuel P. Hege, so this stamp actually depicts a living person in violation of the law.

The 4c Pan-American Invert was a special printing and not regularly issued. Examples were distributed through two official channels, and the gum on the majority of stamps without "Specimen" overprint was disturbed. In fact, because the stamps were removed from mounting paper, they are generally thinned or have seriously disturbed gum. Scott Catalogue notes that "Values are for examples with full original gum that is slightly disturbed".

1956 S Image4c Pan-American, Center Inverted, Specimen Ovpt. (296aS). Clear "Specimen" reading up at left, h.r., showing vertical guideline at left, tiny corner perf crease at bottom right

FINE APPEARING EXAMPLE OF THE 4-CENT PAN-AMERICAN INVERT WITH SPECIMEN OVERPRINT.

If the reported numbers are correct, a total of 203 4c Inverts were released, both with and without the overprint. An unknown quantity of the 4c Pan-American invert was overprinted with a small "Specimen" overprint. Some examples, both with and without the overprint, were given away by Third Asst. Postmaster General Edwin C. Madden. When postal authorities learned of the practice, they destroyed 194 copies and put one pane of 100 into the official archives. At a later date, 97 of these were traded for rarities missing from the archives. (Image)
