Printed on Internal Revenue Paper

In 1938, the Presidential Series was printed for the first time.  Sixteen years later, prominent U.S. stamp collector and dealer S. Kellogg Stryker discovered an unusual stamp error.  He found a $1 Woodrow Wilson Presidential Series stamp with a United States Internal Revenue (USIR) watermark.  Stryker was so fascinated with this stamp, he spent much of his career searching for more, eventually owning about 400 copies of U.S. #832b.

 

A Philatelic Mystery Even Today...

It turns out a small number of $1 Wilson stamps produced in 1951 were accidentally printed on USIR-watermarked paper.  This paper was intended for U.S. Internal Revenue tax stamps only.  How the paper was mistakenly used remains a mystery, as is the exact number of error stamps printed.  Many were used and discarded, limiting the number available to collectors today.  

 

The “Prexies” Were Created by Franklin Roosevelt – 

The Stamp-Collecting President

The Presidential Series of thirty-two definitive or “regular” issue stamps featured U.S. Presidents in order of their terms in office, from George Washington through Calvin Coolidge.  It was the first time all the deceased Presidents were represented in a set.  We owe the idea for the series to America’s stamp-collecting President, Franklin D. Roosevelt.

 

During his time in the White House (1933 to 1945) President Roosevelt personally approved each of the more than 200 stamps issued.  That was quite a feat, as during those 12 turbulent years America struggled through the Great Depression and fought in World War II.  Yet FDR suggested stamp topics, designed stamps, rejected stamp proposals, encouraged changes in laws concerning picturing stamps in catalogs and albums, created many philatelic firsts and more.
