rubber, glue, steel, gold

This stamp has a solid bronze-infused steel handle with a matte gold finish. The handle was 3D printed by Shapeways using a Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process. Its minimalist ergonomic design makes it easy to grip, while it is still heavy enough that it can serve as an effective paper weight when not in use.

CONTEXT
I created this stamp as a response to the Trump administration's decision to walk back the plan to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. On April 20, 2016, then-U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced plans to add Harriet Tubman to the front of the twenty-dollar bill, moving President Andrew Jackson to the rear of the bill. Lew instructed the Bureau of Engraving and Printing to expedite the redesign process, and the new bill was expected to enter circulation sometime after 2020; however, Steven Mnuchin, the current U.S. Treasury Secretary, said that he will not commit to putting Tubman on the twenty-dollar bill, explaining "People have been on the bills for a long period of time. This is something we’ll consider; right now we have a lot more important issues to focus on."

LEGALITY
Though anti-counterfeiting laws prohibit the willful destruction of, and stamping of advertisements upon, paper money, pursuant to I.I.18 U.S.C. § 333 of the United States Code, stamped currency is fit for circulation so long as its denomination remains legible (a full explanation of the legality of currency stamping can be found here:
