Conservation Center preserves philatelic history
CCAHA treated the Peace of 1783 and Byrd Antarctic Expedition II sheets from James A. Farley’s collection to remove them from secondary supports they had been mounted on. (Collectors will note they preserved the original gum on the stamps.) The conserved sheets will be on display in the William H. Gross Stamp Gallery when it opens.
