Pan American Stamps

In a recent number of the official Postal Guide the third assistant postmaster general gives notice that the Pan-American series of postage stamps will be ready for delivery to postmasters, "the latter part of April." These stamps were ordered by the postmaster-general at the instance of the authorities of the Pan-American Exposition, to be held in Buffalo from May to November, 1901. These series will include six stamps, and these will be, according to the statement of Edwin C. Madden, the third assistant postmaster-general, "the most artistic series ever issued from the department."

The denomination, subject, color, etc., of each stamp are officially described as follows:—

One cent, lake steamer, green, fast lake navigation.
