Daniel Webster was the most highly paid attorney of his day. His eloquent speeches influenced judges, juries, and members of Congress. Webster is the subject of the 10¢ 1890-93 Regular Issue stamp.
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.
