Collect 1863 2¢ Jackson on Drop-Rate Covers
Now you can own a U.S. #73 on cover. Issued in the midst of the Civil War, this stamp is often called “Black Jack” or “Big Head” because of the oversized portrait of America’s seventh President, Andrew Jackson.
“Drop” letters were deposited at a post office and picked up there by the recipient. A neat way to document this pivotal period in U.S. postal history.
