Arago: 1-cent Smith

Up
1-cent Smith

The Simon de Passe engraving of John Smith (1580-1631) inspired the image on the 1-cent stamp of the Jamestown Exposition Issue.

The 1-cent Mayflower typically paid the one-cent card rate, but it was also commonly used with other denominations to fulfill large weight and foreign destination rates. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced 78 million of this 1-cent issue.
