A traditional portrait of Andrew Jackson is featured on the 3¢ 1890-93 Regular Issue stamp. A native of South Carolina, Jackson was the first U.S. President not born of the Virginia or Massachusetts aristocracy.
Although similar in design to the previous issues, the 1890-93 Series was smaller in size and featured new colors.
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.
