U.S. #302
Series of 1902-03 3¢ Jackson

Issue Date: February 11, 1903
Quantity issued:
 276,212,074 (estimate)
Printed by: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Method: Flat plate
Watermark: Double
Perforation: 12
Color: Bright violet
 
As with the other stamps in the 1902 series, Jackson’s name, along with the dates of his birth and death, appear beneath his portrait. These features were entirely new on U.S. stamps. U.S. #302 was issued in perforated form alone and saw limited demand from the general public. 
 
Jackson’s Legacy
As a politician, military leader, and President, Andrew Jackson was a patriot who fought for equality and unity in America. “Tough as Old Hickory,” Jackson served his country during the war of 1812, winning several battles and enabling the acquisition of the Florida Territory. As our nation’s seventh President, he reduced the federal debt to its lowest in decades, introduced the rotation in office system, and helped shut down the Second Bank of the United States. Through all of the crises he faced, Jackson protected the interests of the common man. He ensured that all white men could vote and that politicians not be allowed to remain in office too long. He fought corruption and heralded equality and fairness.
 
Series of 1902-03
In 1902, the Postmaster General commissioned an entirely new series of general issues. Until this time, the current regular issues had been in use since 1890 with relatively few changes.
 
The ornate new designs, however, were not the only addition to the 1902 series. The 13-cent denomination was added, and two new faces were introduced – Benjamin Harrison and Admiral David Farragut. For the first time in postal history, an American woman was honored.
 
A slight change was also made in the format. Each stamp in this series bears the inscription, “Series 1902.” This caused some concern abroad, as many European philatelists wondered whether the U.S. was planning on issuing new stamps each year. Many of the stamps, however, did not even reach post offices until 1903, and the next general issues were not produced until 1908.
