Printed on gravure presses instead of intaglio, this stamp had an appearance different from the original version (U.S. #2453). Not only was the gravure image less-clearly defined, but the coated paper used gave the stamp a glossy surface. The typeface was made bolder and was extended, and the design and lettering were printed in red instead of brown.
 
U.S. #2454 is part of the popular Transportation Series. The Transportation Series contains 59 stamps with engraved designs featuring modes of transportation from the baby buggy to the racecar.
