Showing items in Stamps and Covers - Cuba

Postage stamps, booklets, flight, censored and maritime mail and philatelic covers of Cuba for sale.

Cuba has much to offer the postal history collector as pre stamp covers with village and town postmarks are not uncommon and cheap in comparison with British West Indies.

Website of the Cuban Philatelic Society of America:    http://www.cubapsa.com
The Society publishes two English-Spanish journals.   "The Cuban Philatelist" serves as the literary journal of the Society, while "El Boletin" is dedicated to philatelic auctions and Society news, announcements, and advertisements.

A bibliography of books on Cuba philately can be found at the end of these listings.

Post and packing is extra but does not increase however many items are ordered.  Inland £1, Europe £1.50 and Overseas £2
