Online Auction Description
United States 1913 issue, Scott's Cat. # 397 Panama - Pacific Exposition, 1¢ Green perf 12 with the portrait of Vasco Nunez de Balboa.
Here is a fairly good copy of this issue that will look great in your album. The centering is good for this issue, design clears perfs on all sides. The stamp is free of flaws or tears.
Vasco Nunez de Balboa (1475 – 1519) was a Spanish explorer, governor, and conquistador. He is best known for having crossed the Isthmus of Panama to the Pacific Ocean in 1513, becoming the first European to lead an expedition to have seen or reached the Pacific from the New World.
He traveled to the New World in 1500 and, after some exploration, settled on the island of Hispaniola, (Dominican Republic/Haiti). He founded the settlement of Santa Maria la Antigua del Darien in present-day Panama in 1510, which was the first permanent European settlement on the mainland of the Americas (a settlement by Alonso de Ojeda the previous year at San Sebastian de Uraba had already been abandoned).
