Owner's Comments:
Henson Collection - 1940 Famous Americans (1, 2, 3, 5, & 10 each group) - Rotary Press Printing, Plates of 280 stamps in 4 panes of 70 by Bureau of Engraving & Printing. Perferation 10 1/2 x 11. Five stamps each of American: Authors, Poets, Educators, Scientists, Composers, Artists, and Inventors. Each has left the world a little better off than when they arrived. I hope you enjoy the stamp photos as much as I enjoy this set.
