Cuba 1949 - Sc 438-40 - Retiro de Comunicaciones Cross Gutter blocks on three unaddressed First Day Covers.
Cross Gutter blocks of the 1949 stamps issued to raise funds for the Communications Employee Retirement Fund on three unaddressed FDCs. There is one single wormhole that went through all three covers, affecting the Cross Gutter blocks on or near the lower-left stamp. On the 1c value it went through the selvedge to the right of the stamp, directly over the outter rim of the cds. On the 2c value it went through one perforation on the right margin, making it slightly bigger and on the 5c value is exactly on the right marging of the stamp design. These can be seen on the larger pictures provided, since scans were done over a black background. On the 2c cover there is a light tropical stain at the upper border of the envelope. A scarce and still nice FDC set, despite the small faults.
