Scott U.S. #11
Series of 1851-57 3¢ Washington
Type II

Earliest Known Use: October 6, 1851
Quantity issued: 340,000,000 (estimate)
Printed by: Toppan, Carpenter & Co.
Printing Method: Flat plate
Watermark: None
Perforation: Imperforate
Color: Dull red

 

Scott U.S. #11 is the Series of 1851-57 3¢ Washington Type II. Its base external line is missing and both lower shells are removed. The Type II stamp can likewise be recognized by its dull red shading – the Type I stamp is orange cocoa. U.S. #11 is the most widely recognized of the sorts.

Sorts

Sorts or mixed bags happen when a stamp has contrasts that change from the way it was initially planned to be printed. These distinctions happen when the configuration is being exchanged to the plate for printing or when lines are re-cut.

The outline is engraved on a kick the bucket – a little, level bit of steel. The configuration is duplicated to an exchange roll – a clear move of steel.

The Series of 1851-57

In 1851, Congress decreased postal rates. These new rates for all intents and purposes dispensed with separation as a component and made a requirement for new divisions. The 1¢ stamp was utilized on all mail up to 3 ounces and on “drop letters” which were sent to the same town. The single letter rate, taking into account a half ounce, was changed to 3¢ for mail not over a separation of 3,000 miles. Mail surpassing this separation was brought down to 6¢. In 1855, the rate for letters more than 3,000 miles changed to 10¢.

Prepayment was still discretionary. In the event that postage was paid by the recipient upon receipt, the rate was higher. Because of expanded gather rates, the utilization of postage stamps was enormously empowered. In 1855, pre-installment was was made compulsory.
