U.S. #179
1875 5¢ Taylor

Earliest Known Use: July 10, 1875
Quantity issued:
15,290,000 (estimate)
Printed by: Continental Bank Note Company
Method: Flat plate
Watermark: None
Perforation: 12
Color: Blue
 
U.S. #179 pictures Zachary Taylor, our 12th President, who was nicknamed “Old Rough and Ready” during his distinguished military career. 
 
The 5¢ denomination was issued 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.
