    Hello, nice stamp but this is one of three "Kennedy" stamps NOT issued in 1968.
    Note the printed value in centavos rather than the Peso & sentimo.
    Regards, James.

    James, do you mean that the stamp was not released or being used as postage?

    Hello Z, that is what I believe to be correct. Someone else may be able to correct me.
    Regards, James.

    I think this was being released since some claimed that they got or had this stamp. Although not sure if those claims are true. :)

    Hello Z, we all know that occasionally unissued stamps reach the market. The odd sheet may be used by post office staff before being withdrawn.
    There was at least one Penny Black cancelled on the 1st May and two on the 2nd May, several days before the official release of the Penny Black on 6 May 1840.

    James,you are correct: the Kennedy set came never
    in use.According to Michel there are five stamps,two
    of them air-mails in commemoration of John F. and
    Robert Kennedy.They exist perforated and imperforated.There are also two souvenir sheets.
    On the same day,Oct.12,1968 another set of eight,again perforated and imperforated for
    the Mexico Olympics was issued.Again accompanied
    by two souvenir sheets.
    Both sets were issued by an agency under contract
    by the government of the Philippines.
    Partly they were on sale already,when the government had second thoughts and cancelled
    the contract and declared both sets and ss.invalid
    as postage.
    The Kennedy set is valued (Michel 2003) Euro 12.-
    perf.or imperf.,the ss. Euro 12.50.
    Mexico Euro 4.- perf.,Euro 30.- imperf,ss.Euro 37.-

    In Germany the p.o.sends newly issued stamps to the trade several days before they become valid for postage.This is to give FDC-makers time to produce their products in time.Many collectors want FDC´s with an ordinary date cancellation only,what is used on the real date only.Commemorative official FD- cancels are cancelled to order also several
    weeks after the day of issue.
    Pretty often such early sent stamps are used on
    letters earliar than the first day of validity and offered later as rarities to naive collectors.
    If the p.o. finds such letters they are handled like
    any other letters with no or invalid stamps on them.
    But some slip through undetected or were cancelled
    by a "friend" in a p.o.

    Hello, SATX, the only thing that I've spotted is the lack of #44. looking closely though the sheet is copyrighted 2005. I could not enlarge the image enough to check the presidential dates and names.

    Regards, James.

    I matched the dates and the order of ascension; the US Prexies is a valued grouping in mint condition and now I have something to go on the back side of the page...:)
