U.S. #64a
1861 3¢ Washington
Series of 1861-62
 

Issue Date: August 17, 1861
Printed By: 
American Bank Note Company
Printing Method:
Perforations:

Color: 
Pigeon Blood Pink

This stamp is a variety of U.S. #64, which was printed in pink.

To prevent seceding states to profit from the sale of stamps during the Civil War, the U.S. demonetized the previous stamps and created new designs for the 1861-62 issues.  The frame for this stamp differs greatly from that of the left-facing Washington stamp produced previously. This 64a is the rate pigeon blood pink color.
