These stamps were prepared for use, but never issued as the US decided to only use US overprinted stamps. Approximately 600 sets were sent to Panama to be sent to the UPU at Berne Switzerland, but they fell into the hands of the Panamanian stamp dealers. Canal Zone Stamps considers them to be essays and identifies them as 69.A through 69.G, nevertheless they are still a very scarce grouping
