U.S. Postal Insurance Record Labels ~ Scott QI2 ~ Set of 3
U.S. Postal Insurance Record Labels ~ Scott QI2 This is perhaps the most unusual “Back-of-Book” item there is and it is probably missing from 99% of U.S. collections. It is a set of three Postal Insurance Record Labels. These labels were sold from vending machines to pay insurance on parcels for loss or damage. The label comes in a booklet of one, which also carries instructions for use and a receipt form to use if there is a claim. Only five of these items were issued between 1965 and 1981 (Scott QI1 to QI5). The one here, Scott QI2, was the most unusual. When issued in 1966, it paid $15 insurance and cost 20¢. The cost incrreased from 20¢ to 25¢ on April 18, 1976, but no 25¢ labels were printed. Existing copies of QI2 had 5¢ stamps added and the fee on the booklet cover was changed to 25¢, usually by hand. A second fee incrrease was passed in 1978, a 20¢ stamp added and the fee changed on the cover by hand to 40¢. Extremely few of these third items were produced because a new label booklet, QI3, was issued ealy in 1978.

The Scott catalog value of a 20¢ QI2 is $3.00, but the 25¢ and 40¢ varieties are not assigned a value due to their scarcity; dealers sell them for $15+ each and up! Now you can get all three of them from me for only $16.95 postpaid!
