U.S. #2394
$8.75 Eagle and Moon
Express Mail
 
Issue Date: October 4, 1988
City: Terre Haute, IN
Quantity: 120,000,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method:
Lithographed and Engraved
Perforations:
11
Color: Multicolored
 
In an effort to compete with independent, overnight-delivery companies, the USPS lowered its rate from $10.75 for an 8 oz. letter to $8.75. As with previous Express Mail issues, the new stamp featured an eagle's head against a full moon. And like the design, the format was also the same.
 
Postal officials, who had admired the quality of the Migratory Bird hunting stamps, asked the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to use the same intaglio off-set printing technique. Even the size, shape, and perforations were copied! Rather than being printed in sheets of thirty, however, it was printed in mini-sheets of twenty.
