Item Description

The first denomination of the Third Bureau Series, the 1-cent Franklin, has the wording "U.S. Postage" at top and "One Cent" at the bottom. The last time a stamp portraying Benjamin Franklin did not have a numeral in the design to depict the denomination was in 1851 with the 1-cent stamp of the Toppan, Carpenter 1851-1861 Issue.

The first 1-cent Franklin of the Third Bureau Issue rolled off the presses in the late fall of 1908. That first printing was of stamps with a double line "USPS" watermark, and the last printing of 1-cent Franklin stamps began in the late fall of 1910. In that short span of two years, the Bureau of Printing and Engraving produced eleven renditions of the stamp.
