Arago: 13-cent Franklin

13-cent Franklin

The United States issued only one 13-cent Franklin in 1919. Given the World War I rates, the stamp could have paid domestic registered mail fees and the first class rate. Patrons also used the stamp with other denominations to fulfill large weight and foreign destination rates. By the time the last 13-cent Franklin stamps were sold, more than 32 million had been issued.
