1912-14 Washington-Franklin Single Line Watermark Perforated 12

The 1912-14 series saw several changes to the Washington-Franklin configuration. The George Washington vignette replaced Ben Franklin on the one cent stamp. Also, the one and two cent stamps were redesigned so that the denominations were presented using numerals. On prior issues the denominations on the lower values were spelled out. In other words, the design changed from "ONE CENT" to "1 CENT 1."
