Get Both 1875 American Bank Note Stamps
Because the 1869 Pictorial Series was unpopular, new stamps were issued the following year. Nicknamed the “Bank Notes,” this series was printed by three prominent bank note printing companies – the National, Continental, and American Bank Note Companies, in that order.
Now you can get the two stamps printed by the American Bank Note Company in 1875 with one easy order.
The 2¢ Jackson stamp was issued with a change in color, which eliminated much confusion due to the similarity in color between the 1873 version of this stamp and the 10¢ Jefferson.
The Zachary Taylor stamp was issued with a 5¢ denomination to satisfy the postal rate to foreign countries in the Universal Postal Union. The new rate went into effect on July 1, 1875. It rendered the 7¢, 12¢ and 24¢ stamps useless and created the need for a new 5¢ issue. Often used to pay postage on letters to Europe, this stamp is sometimes found in European collections.
