The Announcements was published by the Cuban Post Office as an advance notice to the general people for some of the Cuban postage stamps issues, containing the subject of the Issue, reproduction of the stamps, and printing information. The quantities was limited and the distribution was free af any charge. The philatelists saved them as a souvenir or collateral philatelic item and it is very common to find cancelled on the first day of circulation, on cover, singles etc. We can find a great verieties and combination of each set, according to the collector's imagination. Some of announcements were printed in different language, Spanish, English, French and German.
With the years the scarcity of this type of philatelic memorabilia
are increased and today some of them are very hard to find, ex: 1951 Jose
Raul Capablanca Issue. Unscrupulous people try to sell the stamps printed
on the announcement as a proof or an error of the original
