"I found in the Net some references about other stamps designed by James P. Major, but I have no data in the Catalogs about them.. that is the case of the 1863 Costa Rica series, for example, that in the catalogs appear as work of the American Bank Note Company.. I know that James P. Major worked in the ABNC in those days , but I have no access to this kind of data , and if it exists I don't understand why it is not in it's proper place .. A Catalog.."
