In forty years of searching I have never seen a Republic of Haiti Gold Foil stamp (Scott C309) on a properly canceled and dated cover.

For me, the stamp raises many more questions. Was it ever distributed to post offices? What possible need would a stamp of this face value fill? How would postal employees ever keep track of them, since they are single, small items?

Knowing very little about the Haiti and its postal system, I suspect that these stamps are 100% philatelic; they were never intended to be used for postage.

This was from a Postal Commemorative Society cover. Value is a virtual 0. You can get these covers on eBay for under $1.00 each
