I remember the day this set was released back on Friday, September 26, 1958. I walked to the Philatelic Office at the Palacio de Comunicaciones in Havana that was only few blocks away from home. I had only 2 pesos in my pocket that was enough money to buy one set of stamps and the blank "Lily" cacheted envelope for the First Day Cover but not enough to buy another set for my album. I made the First Day Cover that day and after getting some money from my father over the weekend, I returned Monday afternoon to buy the other set. To my surprise, I was told that the stamps had been completely sold out!
