  Warren G. Harding was elected President by landslide in 1920, winning with the largest popular vote margin since it was first recorded in 1824.  The President died unexpectedly in 1923 while on a West Coast speaking tour. 

Later that year, the United State Postal Service issued U.S. #610, a special stamp that was only to be issued for a limited time of about 60 days – in memory of our 29th President.  Of the 200,000 copies sent to Marion, Ohio (Harding’s hometown), 180,000 were sold on the first day of issue.  Demand for this stamp was far greater than for any previous special issue.  It was impossible to meet the demand by printing from flat plates alone, so the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was authorized to supplement the first printing with a rotary press version.  This was the first commemorative or memorial U.S. stamp issued using two printing methods.  Eventually, over one billion stamps were issued, stretching the original 60-day limit to nearly six full months.

Now you can get all three stamps issued in 1923, marking the passing of Warren G. Harding and save!
