The diamond-shaped Washington and Jackson stamp was developed from a design first created 125 years ago. After exhaustive research, the exact source of the design remains a mystery.

It is speculated that the original design, a $0.03 stamp, was prepared by one of the security printing firms interested in bidding on the 1869 U.S. stamp printing contract.

The reproductions used as the source for the new stamp are based upon published accounts by Clarence Wilson Brazer, who published extensive works on 19th century U.S. stamps in the 1930s and 1940s. Engraver Yves Baril created new engraved decorations and flourishes and replaced the lettering and numerals for the final design.

Made in the USA.
