The 3¢ Stamp that Might Have Been

U.S. stamp essays are an important part of our history – but are missing from most collections.  Created in 1851, this seldom-seen 3¢ Washington essay engraved by England’s “Bradbury, Wilkinson & Co.” features an eye-catching portrait of George Washington.  #11-E5a will expand the scope of your serious U.S. collection by documenting this interesting stage of stamp production.

Essays are designs submitted to postal authorities for vignettes, borders or both that weren’t used in the final printing of a stamp.  Few were created, so this 3¢ Washington essay is quite rare and very collectible.  It pictures a seldom-seen portrait of our first President in a circular design rarely seen on U.S. stamps.
