1894 Postage Due Stamp Designs

These stamps were printed on soft wove paper by the Bureau of Engraving & Printing on 200-subject plates, 400-subject plates after 1910, which were subsequently split into panes of 100 before delivery to Post Offices. These designs were used for over 35 years and demonstrate the full spectrum of watermarks and perforations the Bureau experimented with during that time.
