1881-82 10¢ Jefferson
American Bank Note Printing

Printed by: American Bank Note Company
Method: Flat plate
Watermark: None
Perforation: 12
Color: Black Brown
 
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.
 
Originally, there were five vertical lines between the left edge of the Jefferson portrait oval and the edge of the shield; now there are only four. There are only four horizontal lines above the top of the shield, and the frame around “U.S. Postage” now touches the edge of the frame.
 
The black brown 10¢ stamp is scarcer than the brown stamp.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
