Description: THE STAMP HAS A MASSIVE HORIZONTAL SHIFT OF THE OVERPRINT (THAT ALONE BEING PRICED AT 60 EUROS IN ITALIAN CATALOGUES) -- SAN MARINO 1943 POSTMARK * THERE NEVER EXISTED THIS MAXIMUM CARD WITH SPECIAL FIRST DAY OF ISSUE POSTMARK - EITHER THIS OR NONE * IF YOU OPT FOR NONE, THEN YOUR COLLECTION IS NOT COMPLETE *** VERY VERY RARE MAXIMUM CARD * [AFTER 40 YEARS COLLECTING MAXIMUM CARDS I KNOW WHAT I AM SAYING] By the way this and similar cards offered here were prepared by Professor Morera - THE GREATEST AUTHORITY IN MAXIMUM CARDS -- In those days maximum cards were not produced by the 100s, Prof. Morera sent a few cards to the various post offices and that was that, were it not for him there would be none of these very important and rare maximum cards *** A Maximum Card is a picture postcard with a matching postmarked postage stamp affixed on the view side. The ideal maximum card has concordance between elements (depiction on stamp matching the depiction on postcard - or elements of it -- with a postmark that is as closely related as possible to what is depicted on stamp and postcard). However such a perfect concordance is not always 100% achievable because at the time the maximum card was processed there were no matching postmarks available.

FRESCOES POPE SYLVESTER & EMPEROR CONSTANTINE 4 VATICAN MAXIMUM CARDS
Country: VATICAN
Condition: FRESCOES POPE SYLVESTER & EMPEROR CONSTANTINE 4 VATICAN MAXIMUM CARDS
Description: The Edict of Milan established freedom of worship and marked an end to religious persecution by recognizing the right to profess one’s own faith. The declaration was issued in 313 AD in Milan, where Costantia, daughter of Constantine (emperor of the west) married Licinius (emperor of the east). From the beginning, the Christians would not participate in the imperial cult which claimed the divine status of the Roman emperors. For this reason, the Christians were opposed by the political and religious authorities. The Christian martyrs, the faithful who gave their lives for the faith, are eternal witnesses to the ferociousness of this persecution. To mark the 1700th anniversary of the “Edict of Milan” the Vatican has issued a series of three postal values and a mini sheet, the latest in a joint issue with Italy, depicting scenes of Constantine and Pope Sylvester I taken from the recently restored 13th century frescoes in the Oratory of Saint Sylvester at the Santi Quattro Coronati Basilica in Rome. Pictured here are 4 limited edition Maximum Cards with the four stamps issued by the Vatican. The 1.90 e denomination shows Pope Sylvester showing the portraits of St Peter and St Paul to the Emperor Constine the Great. The 2.50 e depicts Pope Sylvester returning to Rome to meet Emperor Contantine; 0.70 e depicts the Emperor Constine being baptized by Pope Sylvester; 0.85 Emperor Constantine I presents the imperial tiara to Pope Sylvester.
