Stamp & Coin Combination for Collecting and Trading
Set Includes Pre-1970 Mexican Diez Centavo Coin!
Chief Ouray - Ute Indian Chief of Peace collector's set includes collectible faux postage stamp of Chief Ouray and real pre-1970 minted Diez Centavo coin from the Mexican government. (Why a mexican coin? Because Chief Ouray, born and raised near Taos, New Mexico spoke better Spanish than he did English. He traded often with Mexican traders who traveled northern New Mexico and Colorado along the Old Spanish Trail and Mexican coins were more prevalent in the area at the time than any others.)
Reverse side of the card highlights historical information about Chief Ouray and his desires as leader of the seven Ute tribes to negotiate peace with the whiteman during the late 1800s. Sure to please the stamp collector and history buff! Collectible stamp/coin combination sets are packaged in resealable plastic protectors.
Stamp collectors please note: Because of it's beauty and unique image (1904 engraving) of Chief Ouray, this stamp was selected for use by the United States Bureau of Printing & Engraving Managers Group for use on their own limited edition, Chief Ouray commemorative print published in 2004.
