1923 Warren G. Harding Memorial

Warren G. Harding died in August of 1923 and a two cent memorial stamp was issued in September of that same year. Although the stamp was only intended to be available for 60 days, demand was so great that they remained on sale until February 1924. The flat plate press runs originally used could not keep up with the high demand and rotary presses were engaged resulting in a collectible variation. Imperforate versions of the stamps were also available, most of which were saved as souvenirs rather than used on the mail.



Denom. Description Mint Used
2 cent Flat Perforated 11 $0.70 $0.30
2 cent Flat Imperforate $7.50 $4.75
2 cent Rotary Perforated 10 $24.00 $2.00
