#CSA8a – 1863 2c Confederate States - Andrew Jackson - pale-red, soft paper (Archer & Daly)

1863 2¢ Jackson
A Sign of Progress For the South
Own a direct link to the tragic Civil War and a brief moment of hope for the beleaguered South. Unlike the North, the South lacked the means to produce fine engraved stamps from steel plates.  They relied on less desirable methods of lithography and typography to produce their stamps – until they lured John Archer away from the American Bank Note Company.  Archer moved from New York to Richmond and modified the central design of the 2¢ U.S. Jackson “Black Jack” stamp.  The result was the striking 1863 2¢ Jackson – the first engraved stamp issued by the Confederate States of America.  Hold history in your hands – order today.
