Own the Complete 1923-29 Rotary Coil Set

Get the complete set of 10 Rotary Coil stamps and save off individual stamp prices.  Increased demand by large volume mailers and a desire for lower printing costs led postal officials to introduce rotary coil stamps. The printing press “rolled” the images onto the stamps, making the printing process simpler and quicker.  The stamps in this set are among the earliest printed by this method, making them important additions to your collection.  Produced with the same dies as the flat plate Series of 1923-26 stamps, US #597-606 stamps are slightly wider.

The set of 10 mint stamps honors several important figures in American history with images based on paintings and busts by famous artists.  For instance, the 1¢ Washington and 2¢ Franklin stamps picture engravings of busts created by Jean-Antoine Houdon, a famous sculptor noted for his lifelike statues.  Additionally, the 4¢ Martha Washington stamp is based on a painting by Gilbert Stuart, one of America’s greatest painters.  Stuart also painted the famous portrait of George Washington that has appeared on the $1 bill for over a century.

An Interesting area of study and a great piece of postal history.
