4-cent Jackson

The 4-cent Andrew Jackson stamp of the 1882-1890 New Bank Notes Issue was the first four cent denomination stamp issued by the United States. It used the same portrait as the 2-cent Jackson of the previous series. It was released in coordination with the first class domestic mail rate change from three to two cents. The stamp was issued to fulfill the double weight rate. The stamp was at first issued in a green color, then later in 1888 printed in a carmine color. The four cent denomination would be represented in every regular issue series for the rest of the Classic Period and throughout the Bureau Period. It was most often used to pay the double weight domestic first class rate or in combination with other denominations to fulfill larger foreign destination rates. A total of approximately 103,000,000 4-cent stamps were printed by American Bank Note Company.
