1932 9¢ Washington
Washington Bicentennial Issue

First City: Washington, DC
Quantity Issued: 75,709,200
Printed by: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Rotary Press
Perforation: 11 x 10.5

George Washington’s 200th birth anniversary was commemorated with a series of 12 stamps. This stamp was based on a painting by William Joseph Williams, which showed Washington wearing the full dress of the Masonic Lodge to which he belonged. The stamp shows Washington looking older than in most portraits. The Post Office Department had the Masonic symbolism removed from the design, but kept Washington’s likeness.
 
George Washington Bicentennial Series
In 1932, the Post Office Department issued a 12-stamp series in honor of the 200th birth anniversary of George Washington. Early designs included themes such as the Washington Monument, Washington crossing the Delaware River, and Mount Vernon. But the final product was a series of portraits by esteemed artists such as Charles W. Peale, John Trumbull, and Gilbert Stuart.
