This is a full sheet of 50 San Juan, Puerto Rico unused 8 cent 1971 vintage postage stamps. They were issued on September 12, 1971 and were designed by Walter Brooks.

The stamps picture a sentry box from Castillo de San Felipe del Morro. "San Juan Puerto Rico" is in black caps along the left side of the stamp. "U. S. 8c" is in black in the upper right; "1521-1971" is in the lower left corner. Sand, brown, and yellow are the main colors of these stamps.

These stamps were issued in recognition of the 450th anniversary of San Juan, Puerto Rico. San Juan was founded in 1519. Construction on the fortress depicted on the stamp began in 1539 to protect the seacoast.

Each stamp measures 1 5/8" tall x 1" wide (4.1 cm x 2.5 cm). The entire sheet measures 9" tall x 10 1/2" wide (22.9 cm x 26.7 cm).

These stamps are “mint” – meaning they have never been used. They have the original glue.

My grand-aunt collected these. She was not a “true” stamp collector & basically stored them in manila envelopes. Whenever the USPS came out with a new stamp – especially a commemorative one – she purchased at least one sheet & put them away in her envelopes.

These stamps are great for collectors both young and old alike. Additionally, they’d be great for paper crafting & jewelry making or anywhere else your creativity wants to take you. They are also a great gift for someone born on the day the stamps were issued. Frame them and give them as a nice and thoughtful gift – or keep them for yourself.

I do have hundreds of stamps. If there is a specific one you’re looking for feel free to contact me and I’ll see if I have the one you need.

Thanks for visiting! Have a fantastic day!!
