Sounds like a great idea since Venezuela #136 is very cheap and would fit nicely with the US series. I had no idea it existed before you showed this since I do not collect Venezuela. I have the entire US series, so I think I'll look for this as well and throw it with them. Did any other country issue a stamp like this as well?

Hi Harvey.

You asked "Did any other country issue a stamp like this as well?", I don't know. I was reading Sloane's Column the other night.

I would if I had one! Here's items I've included on my Columbian pages...

There was a full set of postcards. Unused they are fairly common because sets were widely sold by stamp dealers, aside from being available at the event. Still, they are in the $10 range. When I see one cheaper, I usually grab it.

They were printed on postal cards, this is the same for all the cards. Below are a few more I own...

And my favorite... an actual ticket for the event. Note the bank note quality!

I'd like to post images of my own Columbian Expo items as well, but don't want to be accused of going off topic.

This is the watermark on the envelopes - I see no watermarks on any of the other items.

The tickets, etc. are on heavier/thicker paper (cardstock?) than the envelopes - light does not show thru them.

I can however scan and post images of the reverse of the tickets. They all have images on the back.
