100In 1971 the USPS tried to get into the "Prestige" philatelic market by buying up Scott # 230 in mint condition with the goal of repackaging them for collectors at a profit. They were only able to procure around 1,000 of them for this endeavor. What they came up with was reported in philatelic release no. 93 as a new book "The Sea" described as "limited edition of 998 copies", "artistic" with "superb photographs and poetry". Each book in its lucite holder was sold at the price of $300.00. The owner tried to obtain three copies, but only was able to get one as an investment. It has sat in its original mailer along with the 1971 press release for the last 44 years. Never on display. We have never seen a copy of this official USPS publication before and look to the secondary market to determine its true value. Truly rare with a printing of only 998.Cat. Value: S.B. 300
