Up
2-cent Founding of Jamestown

The 2-cent stamp of the Jamestown Exposition Issue features the only non-portrait of the set, the founding of Jamestown by the Virginia Company in 1607. The Founding of Jamestown stamp paid the first-class domestic rate, and patrons also combined it with other denominations to fulfill large weight and foreign destination rates. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing produced over 149 million of these stamps.
