1900-1920 US Stamps (294-547)

The early 20th century produced some of the most popular and collectible US stamps. This was a period of experimentation for the Post Office. In 1908, the Post Office introduced the coil stamp as part of second bureau issue. These few initial printings were followed by the a wide variety of coils issued as part of the Washington Franklin series. Some of the most popular sets of commemorative U.S. stamps were issued during this period including the Pan-Am Exposition, Louisiana Purchase, Jamestown Exposition, Panama-Pacific Exposition and the Pilgrim Tercentenary set of 3. This period was also highlighted by the Washington-Franklin issues and the introduction of coil stamps. The Post Office experimented with with perforation varieties, watermarks and developed the rotary press as a means of reducing printing costs. This period also produced some very rare stamps such as the first coils, #316-318, and the famous bluish papers, #357-366.
