A copy of the first postage stamp issued by the provisional Jewish government in Palestine was auctioned off last night for $100 at the annual dinner of the stamp and coin division of the Greater New York United Jewish Appeal. Bearing a Tel Aviv postmark, the stamp was purchased by Jacques Minkus, manager of Gimbel’s stamp section.
