The Third Bureau Issues, commonly known as the Washington-Franklins Head Issues (or simply the Washington-Franklins) appeared in late 1908. Before the last of these stamps was issued in early 1922, approximately 250 different stamps were issued, all bearing the likeness of either George Washington or Benjamin Franklin in a variety of 5 different illustrations.

To the casual observer, many of these stamps appear identical. However, the subtle differences in watermark, perforation, and method of printing make the series one of the most challenging definitives to collect. All the stamps were printed on flat plat presses with the exception of several coil stamps and experimental sheet stamps printed on the rotary press late in the life of the series. Between 1918 and 1920, several sheet stamps were also produced by offset printing.

The single most notable feature of this series is its use of only two images, those of Washington and Franklin. This was a radical departure from the trend to expand the number of individuals portrayed on stamps. Not since the first two postage stamps of 1847 had only Washington and Franklin the first two postage stamps of 1847 had only Washington and Franklin appeared on the nation’s definitive stamps.

In this set you will receive 50 2cent George Washington stamps issued through the 1920s.

All of these are cancelled and off paper.There may be some minor imperfections but they only add authentic antique character; overall these are all in wonderful condition!

Not only can these stamps be appreciated by philatelic collectors & enthusiasts, they can also be used for decorative paper crafting, card making, collages, scrapbooking, journaling, jewelry making and more! Sorting and organizing stamps offers endless hours of soothing relaxation for both the young and old. Getting your kids into stamps at a young age will help them to be better organized in the future.

If you are looking for something in particular please convo me for me details on a custom order.
