Arago: 1-cent Washington at Cambridge

Up
1-cent Washington at Cambridge

Gen. George Washington and his troops stand at Cambridge, Massachusetts, are the subject for the first denomination of the Lexington-Concord Issue. As a single, the one-cent stamp typically paid the one-cent card rate. But it was also commonly used with other denominations to fulfill large-weight and foreign destination rates. An estimated total of over 15 million stamps of the one-cent issue were printed by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing and issued to the public.
