Rose pink
 
This stamp is a variety of U.S. #64, which was printed in 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.
