Arago: 2-cent Walloons Landing at Fort Orange

Up
2-cent Walloons Landing at Fort Orange

The two-cent denomination of the Huguenot-Walloon Issue featured the landing of the Walloons at Albany. As a single, the two-cent stamp typically paid the first-class domestic rate. But it was also commonly used with other denominations to fulfill large-weight and foreign destination rates. An estimated total of over 77 million stamps of the two-cent issue were printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and issued to the public!
