Am curious to learn more about these jumbo-sized stamps from Guatemala. Scott doesn't assign a catalogue number to either, but notes in the catalogue after C789 that these were issued and gives them a SCV of $100 and $125 apiece.
I'm breaking down an album and have no use for them (and just put them up on eBay
), but am curious as to why they were issued, and if they ever really saw postal duty - I assume they were issued just for the philatelic market. Has anyone ever come across a postally used example?
