1991 Flag

  • Issued for presorted mail
  • Flag design is the same as the one used on the Flag over Mt. Rushmore stamp

Category of Stamp:  Definitive
Value: 
23¢, Presort Rate
First Day of Issue: 
September 27, 1991
First Day City: 
Washington, DC
Quantity Issued: 
515,000,000
Printed by: 
American Bank Note Company
Printing Method:
Photogravure
Format: 
Coils of 500 and 3,000, from printing cylinders of 456 (19 across, 24 down)
Perforations: 
10

Reason the stamp was issued:  The stamp was issued for use by bulk mailings that had been presorted by the mailer and could bypass the post office’s electronic sorters.  It replaced the 10¢ Tractor Tailer stamp, which some mailers felt gave the impression that they received a deep discount on sending mail.  In fact, the mailers bought the stamp for 10¢, then made up the difference between that price and the actual cost of the stamp when they sent out their mailings.

About the stamp design:  The flag design was taken from the Flag over Mount Rushmore stamp.  In an effort to release the stamp quickly, the image of Mount Rushmore was removed and replaced with words describing the use of the stamp.

First Day City:  There was no official ceremony for this stamp’s release.
