U.S. #220
1890-93 Regular Issue 2¢ Washington

Issue Date: 1890
Quantity issued:
6,144,819,500 (estimate)
Printed by: American Bank Note Company
Method: Flat plate
Watermark: None
Perforation: 12
Color: Carmine

Although similar in design to the previous issues, the 1890-93 Series was smaller in size and featured new colors.

Originally printed in reddish purple, the color of the U.S. #219D stamp generated numerous complaints. In addition to being unattractive, the ink would run when soaked in water. Due to complaints about the color, the decision was made to re-issue the stamp in carmine, resulting in U.S. #220.

The 1890-93 Regular Issue stamps were the last issued printed by the American Bank Note Company for 50 years. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing was awarded exclusive control of stamp production until the 1943 Overrun Nations.
