U.S. #208a
1881-82 6¢ Lincoln
American Bank Note Printing
 
Printed by: American Bank Note Company
Method: Flat plate
Watermark: None
Perforation: 12
Color: Deep Brown Red
 
In 1881, the American Bank Note Company decided some of the plates they were using had become too worn, and did not show enough clarity and detail. Plates for the 1¢, 3¢, 6¢, and 10¢ were re-engraved; various lines were deepened and certain features were sharpened.
 
Only three vertical lines can be counted from the edge of the frame to the outside edge of the 6¢ Lincoln stamp; previously there were four. The color of #208a differs from the rose-colored #208.
