1957-1962 Four Cent Commemorative issues

1957 Issues

The four-cent 48-Star Flag was issued in 1957, a year before the unexpected rate change.  It was a multi-colored international rate stamp, intended to pay the international surface postal card rate of 4¢.  It was issued during the 3¢ rate period and appears with those stamps.

Scott 1096, 8¢ Magsaysay, Double plate number 25808 / 25772 LR

The Magsaysay stamp also fell in the 3¢ rate period and was a multi-colored international rate stamp, intended to pay the 8¢ Airmail rate.  It appears with the 4¢ Commemoratives because it logically belongs with the rest of the Champions of Liberty issues.
