2013 33¢ Baldwin
Apples Coil

According to legend, an unusual apple seedling was found on a farm in Wilmington, Massachusetts, in 1740.  The seedling matured to become a tree that produced bright red winter apples that remained free from blemishes and blights.  The apples were brought to the attention of Colonel Loammi Baldwin, a local surveyor. Impressed by the thick-skinned fruit with light yellow skin mottled with red and carmine, Baldwin introduced these apple trees throughout eastern Massachusetts.  The Baldwin apple became the most popular apple in New England, where it was widely used for baking and making cider.
 
The original Baldwin apple tree survived until the early 1800s.  A harsh winter in 1934 destroyed many Baldwin orchards developed from that first tree, and the apple variety slipped in popularity.
 
Loammi Baldwin, an accomplished man, died in 1807.  He is called the Father of American Civil Engineering and was present at the Battle of Lexington and Concord.  Baldwin also accompanied Washington when he crossed the Delaware and took part in the Battle of Trenton.  However, Baldwin is best remembered for the apple that bears his name... and for being the cousin of Jonathan Chapman, more often known as Johnny Appleseed.

Artist John Burgoyne created the apple artwork for this stamp using watercolor with pen and ink before adding finishing touches with computer software.
