|The picture shows a view of all (11) Different Colorful Old Unused Smash Commemorative Stamp Historic Stickers in this lot. These are still connected with five on the left and six on the right. Many of these stickers have years on them and the latest is 1974 on a few. We do believe that they are from that time. Each sticker has ''9c'' (nine cents ?) at the top two corners. We do not know where these came from, but a guess may be as an insert in a monthly magazine. These are the second in a series, but we do not know how many were in each series, or how many different ones were made.|
There are a variety of colorful designs with facts. These look like colorful miniature posters that would look great hanging in a mod doll house. These do not have any glue on the backs. These are the first examples of these stamps that we have seen. The maker is unknown. The top of the left sheet is marked as follows:
