Neat presentation and scans, thanks jorgesurcl.

before but have seen those US parcel post stamps.

I like the Cuba stamp with the ship on it, and the U.S. Parcel Post are very nice!
So much has changed in the way of technology since these stamps were produced, but these
stamps look better than most produced today.
It would be really nice to see stamps like this today.

jorgesurcl, the stamps from the Trans-Mississippi Issue
are just about the most beautiful American stamps.
Did Baldwin engrave only the 3 you showed?
My favourites are the 4c and the $1 although sorry
to say I do not have them.
I do have the 1998 Bi-color Re-issue souvenir sheet
which was a superb printing job by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
Pity that 7 years after that the BEP stopped printing stamps.
