U.S. #64
1861 3¢ Washington
Series of 1861-62
 

Issue Date: August 17, 1861
Printed By: 
American Bank Note Company
Printing Method:
Perforations: 
12
Color: 
Pink

To prevent seceding states from profiting from the sale of stamps during the Civil War, the U.S. demonetized the previous stamps and created new designs for the 1861-62 issues.  The frame for this stamp differs greatly from that of the left-facing Washington stamp produced previously. The denomination is expressed in numbers in the top corners of the stamp to make it easy to differentiate from the previous issue.
