Notes from the Past

AEF Booklets

Two AEF stamp booklets were produced by the USPOD in 1918 for use by troops serving in the American Expeditionary Force in Europe during World War I.

One booklet contained 10 panes of 30 one-cent stamps, and the other had 10 panes of 30 two-cent stamps.  They sold at face value.

Both the 1¢ and the 2¢ stamps were in the Washington Head design in use at the time.

The panes are horizonatal and contain three rows of 10 stamps.  They were printed from 360 subject plates comprising 12 panes arranged 2 x 6.

The cover of the booklets bear the simple text "360 / 1 CENT (2 CENT) POSTAGE STAMPS / $3 ($6)."
