An active politician, Henry Clay served in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives from 1806 to 1824. He sought the Presidency in 1824, 1831, 1844, and 1848, but each time he was defeated. In 1849, he returned to the Senate. Clay is the subject of the 15¢ 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.
