The 1857-61 issues were the initially punctured U.S. stamps. Their plans were imitated from the imperforate plates of 1851. Be that as it may, the 90¢ stamp of this arrangement was another category. The picture of Washington, in the dress uniform of a general, is engraved after a representation by Trumbull. It is considered by numerous to be the most nice looking of the exemplary stamps and was positioned #10 in 100 Greatest American Stamps.

The 90¢ Washington stamp fulfilled the rate of 20¢ for each half ounce for letters and bundles sent more than 2,500 miles to remote nations. It was the most elevated designated stamp to date. The expense far surpassed $140 in today’s wages so few were printed and most gatherers of the day were not able to get it.

U.S. #39 was issued in late 1860, as Lincoln’s initiation lingered and strains developed between the North and South. After a few Southern states withdrew, the government reported it would suspend postal support of the new Confederate States of America. At that point current U.S. postage stamps were rendered invalid, including the recently issued 90¢ Washington stamp. Unsold inventories were come back to the U.S. Post Office and annihilated.

Since they were being used for an exceptionally concise period, veritable utilized samples of U.S. #39 are much rarer than mint stamps and have a higher market value.
