First City: Washington, DC
Printed by: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Flat plate
Perforation: 11 gauge

Each stamp in this booklet pane features an image of George Washington. At the time it was issued, it would have the first class mailing rate. The portrait was the same one used on the die for the 1908 stamp. U.S. #554 was in use for over two years.

The Series of 1922-25
and the Wheels of Progress
In 1847, when the printing presses first began to move, they didn’t roll – they “stamped” in a process known as flat plate printing. The Regular Series of 1922 was the last to be printed by flat plate press, after which stamps were produced by rotary press printing.
 
By 1926, all denominations up to 10¢ – except the new ½¢ – were printed by rotary press. For a while, $1 to $5 issues were done on flat plate press due to smaller demand.
