1922 Fourth Bureau Series - Flat Plate issues (perf. 11)

The low values of this series are mostly portraits of famous persons from early U.S. history, with the higher values largely scenes or buildings. This change was implemented due to complaints that it was too difficult to tell the various denominations apart among all the Washington-Franklin definitives of the preceding series.

This series also introduced the first fractional U.S. stamps, two varieties of the 1/2 and several varieties of two different portraits of the 1-1/2.
