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.
The $1 denomination pictures the Lincoln Memorial.
 
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.
 
Lincoln Memorial Statue Carved from Georgia Marble
The Lincoln Memorial, located at the end of the National Mall, is one of our nation’s most impressive monuments. It consists of a massive marble building 80 feet tall, 189 feet long and just over 118 feet wide. A great hall runs along the exterior of the building, surrounded by 36 Doric (a Greek style) columns. The cornerstone for the monument was laid on February 12, 1915, and it was dedicated on May 30, 1922.
 
At the center of the hall sits a gigantic statue of Lincoln, carved from 28 separate blocks of white Georgia marble. The statue was designed by Daniel Chester French and carved by the Piccirilli brothers of New York. This massive statue is 19 feet tall and 19 feet wide.
