The first portrait of Andrew Jackson on stamp, issued in 1863, was derived from artist Miner Kellogg’s work. Every subsequent Jackson stamp, including the 3-cent 1890-1893 issue, was inspired by the Jean-Antoine Houdon sculpture. Other than George Washington (the subject of twenty different stamp issues), Jackson appeared on more Classic Period stamps than any other president.
The 3-cent stamp was used primarily in combination with other denominations to fulfill larger rates. A total of 46,877,250 of these stamps were printed by the American Bank Note Company.
