Rare One Cent Benjamin Franklin Stamp. The WashingtonFranklin Issues are a series of definitive U. Post Office between 1908 and 1922. The distinctive feature of this issue is that it employs only two engraved heads set in ovalsWashington and Franklin in full profileand replicates one or another of these portraits on every stamp denomination in the series. This is a significant departure from previous definitive issues, which had featured pantheons of famous Americans, with each portrait-image confined to a single denomination.
At the same time, this break with the recent past represented a return to origins. Washington and Franklin, after all, had appeared on the first two American stamps, issued in 1847, and during the next fifteen years, each of the eight stamp denominations available (with one exception) featured either Washington or Franklin.
We have thoroughly done our research. A digital microscope with a millimeter scale may provide that accuracy, as would a digital or electronic caliper or sliding millimeter gauge. Work slowly and carefully and for goodness sake, avoid sharp edges.
The joy of finding a valuable gem will be no consolation if you discover that you just cut a gash in it.
