Recess printed by the American Bank Note Company, New York. Line perf. 12.
To celebrate his assumption of the presidency on February 8, 1914, and to honor his immediate predecessor Tancrède Auguste, President Oreste Zamor ordered a new set of 13 stamps from New York in 1914. However, the stamps only arrived in Haiti in late 1914 after Zamor had already been driven out of office, and were therefore not issued immediately but stored in a warehouse. During a civil unrest in 1915, a large quantity of them was stolen from the storage facility. The whole issue was subsequently retracted, and the remainders were publicly burned on July 24, 1916. All stamps today thus come from the stolen quantities.
While Y&T still lists the single stamps, the Scott numbers provided here are the ones used in older editions of the catalog before they were dropped. Some values only exist in the form of ABNCo specimens.
