#M12478 – 2019 Transcontinental Railroad Stamp and Proof Box Set

Limited Edition Transcontinental Railroad 150th Anniversary Collector’s Box Set

 
Completing the Transcontinental Railroad is widely considered as one of the greatest accomplishments of the 19th century.  To commemorate the achievement, the US Postal Service issued this special collector’s box set.
 
The box is an elegant cobalt blue with a large gold foil design on top reading, "Transcontinental Railroad 150th Anniversary.”  Lifting its lid reveals a vintage-style map that shows parts of the railroad’s routes.  And on the inside bottom of the box is an old photograph of the railroad.  There’s even more cool stuff inside…
 
 

After you open the box, you’ll first see a neat certificate of authenticity issued directly by the US Postal Service.  It lists everything included within your beautiful new collector’s set, along with a large gold foil insignia using the same design as the 2019 “Golden Spike” stamp.
 
Next, you’ll see a folder holding a pane of the new 150th anniversary stamps along with six authentic progressive proofs straight from the printing press!
 
Lastly, you’ll discover a 44-page book. This book is really something!  It’s fully illustrated and packed with important history about the railroad’s construction and details behind creating the 150th-anniversary stamps.  The book also includes old photographs, authentic artwork inspired by 19th-century maps, train tickets, and lots more.
 
There’s a lot to appreciate with this historic and well-crafted box set.  And remember, only a very limited quantity was produced. Don’t miss your opportunity to own it today!
