Stamp Investment Tip: Canal Zone 1939 Pan-Am Clipper (Scott #C15-20)

In 1939, the Canal Zone issued a set of six airmails picturing scenes of Pan American Clipper planes flying over the Panama Canal (Scott #C15-20). The set commemorated the 10th Anniversary of C.Z. airmail service, and the 25th Anniversary of the opening of the Panama Canal. 40,051 sets were issued, but these were in use for less than 2 years, as the sets were withdrawn in early 1941, and the remainders destroyed. Scott '13 prices the unused set at $ 86.00 .

Stamps of the Canal Zone are popular among U.S. Possessions collectors, and should continue to do well as interest both in this collecting area and in Latin America grows.
