This is a full sheet of 150 unused Indian Head Penny, 13 cent vintage US postage stamps. They were issued on January 11, 1978 at Kansas City, Missouri.

This stamp has a picture of an Indian Head penny on an ivory cream background. "USA 13c" is underneath the picture.

Each stamp measures 3/4" tall x 3/4" wide (1.9 cm x 1.9 cm) . The entire sheet measures 9" tall x 10 3/8" wide (22.9 cm x 26.4 cm).

These stamps are “mint” – meaning they have never been used. They have the original glue.

The Indian Head penny stamp was an experimental stamp that was sold in panes of 150 stamps versus the standard pane of 100. They were also significantly smaller in size. The stamp was tested in five cities across the United States for public acceptance (Hartford, CT; Richmond, VA; Portland, OR; Memphis, TN; and Kansas City, MI). The response of the public was negative stating the stamps were too small to handle and too easy to lose.

My grand-aunt collected these. She was not a “true” stamp collector & basically stored them in manila envelopes. Whenever the USPS came out with a new stamp – especially a commemorative one – she purchased at least one sheet & put them away in her envelopes.

These stamps are great for collectors both young and old alike. Additionally, they’d be great for paper crafting & jewelry making or anywhere else your creativity wants to take you. They are also a great gift for someone born on the day the stamps were issued. Frame them and give them as a nice and thoughtful gift – or keep them for yourself.

I do have hundreds of stamps. If there is a specific one you’re looking for feel free to contact me and I’ll see if I have the one you need.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!!
