U.S. #1048
25¢ Paul Revere
Liberty Series
 
Issue Date: April 18, 1958
City: Boston, MA
Printed by: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Rotary Press
Perforations:
11 x 10½
Color: Green
 
The image of Paul Revere on U.S. #1048 is based on an 1813 painting by Gilbert Stuart.
 
Paul Revere (1735-1818)
American Patriot and Silversmith
Born in Boston, Paul Revere was a leader in the patriot group known as The Sons of Liberty, whose members participated in the Boston Tea Party. History remembers Revere for his ride from Charlestown to Lexington and then on to Concord on April 18, 1775, to warn the local militia that the British were coming. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow memorializes this ride in the poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride.”
 
Revere was also an outstanding silversmith (his graceful designs are still copied today), an engraver, and the first American to discover how to roll sheet copper.
 
The Liberty Series
Issued to replace the 1938 Presidential series, this patriotic set of stamps honors guardians of freedom throughout U.S. history. Eighteenth century America is represented by Revolutionary War heroes and statesmen such as Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Hamilton, Henry, Jay, and Revere.
 
Leaders of the 19th century including Monroe, Lincoln, Lee, Harrison, and Susan B. Anthony make an appearance. The 20th century is represented by Teddy Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, and General Pershing.
 
The Liberty Series also features famous locations important to America’s democratic history, such as Bunker Hill, Independence Hall, and the Alamo.
 
“Wet” versus “Dry” Printing
The Bureau of Engraving and Printing began an experiment in 1954. In previous “wet” printings, the paper had a moisture content of 15 to 35 percent. In the experimental “dry” printings, the paper had a moisture content of 5 to 10 percent. This process required stiffer, thicker paper, special inks, and greater pressure to force the paper through the plates.
 
Stamps produced by dry printing can be distinguished by whiter paper and higher surface sheen. The stamps feel thicker and the designs are more pronounced than on wet printings. So the dry printing experiment was a success, and all U.S. postage stamps have been printed by this method since the late 1950s.
