Americans face different hurdles than residents of other countries when it comes to collecting Cuban postage stamps. As the disclaimer at the end of this article states, the author is not an attorney and cannot provide legal advice. With that in mind, I will attempt to provide information that may prove helpful.
In email correspondence received on June 16, 2017, from an employee of the U.S. Treasury Department, I was advised of the following:
In other words, until the Cuban Assets Control Regulations are appropriately modified or repealed, you can't trade in unused Cuban stamps issued in 1962 or later. You should not have any issue with pre-1962 mint Cuban stamps, or used Cuban stamps regardless of date of issue, that were purchased from a dealer in the United States.
