Washington and Jackson $5 Stamp

I love the engraved style of old stamps much more than the full color images of current stamps. The single color etching somehow captures the nostalgic nature of the handwritten, hand-delivered letter. The origin of the Washington and Jackson $5 Stamp is a little cloudy, which also makes it more interesting. Plus, it's a little trippy, a rarity in stamps. Hop over to your USPS and pick some up.
