U.S. #561
9¢ Thomas Jefferson
 Series of 1922-25

Issue Date:
January 15, 1923
First City:  Washington, D.C.
Perforations: 11
Color: Rose
 
Jefferson’s image is from an engraving made for the 2¢ stamp in the 1904 Louisiana Purchase commemoratives.
 
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.
 
Thomas Jefferson – Founding Father
As a delegate to the Continental Congress, Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence, and was later elected our 3rd President. He died on the 50th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.
