2c stamp

2¢ George Washington

Like the 1¢ issue the 2¢ Washington sought use on a variety of mails and was issued in January 1903. The public immediately disliked the ornate design claiming the first president appeared weak. Later in 1903 the stamp was redesigned and reissued. There are several common solo franking possibilities from 1st class letters to twice the weight 3rd and 4th class mails. The stamp also sought use on foreign destined post cards and postal treaty covers to Mexico and Canada. Varieties include booklet panes and the Philippines overprint.
