Postal history of Haiti - The first stamps of Haiti
On 1 July 1881 Haiti became member of UPU. This led to the closing of the British and French Post Offices on the island, and Haiti got their own postal authorities and their own stamps. The first issue was the imperforated Liberty Heads and consisted of six values: 1c, 2c, 3c, 5c, 7c and 20c. You can find a detailed description of the issue in the Collectors Club Philatelist Vol. ** No. **.
Here you should find a letter frankered with the imperforated Liberty Heads, but unfourtunately I do not own one yet. Can you help me change this situation, please send me an e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
