Farley's Follies

James A. Farley was the U.S. Postmaster General under Franklin Roosevelt. Over the course of his administration, Farley routinely removed stamps from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing before they had been completely processed. He would then make gifts of these ungummed and imperforate postal oddities giving them to F.D.R., other political acquaintances, his friends, and even his children. When stamp collectors learned of these gifts, they were upset that the general public had not had equal opportunity to add them to their collections. As a solution, the Post Office reissued 35 stamps, all without gum and most without perforations, and made them available to collectors. The original gift stamps are often called "Farley's Follies." The reissued stamps in three series, are generally collectively referred to as the "Farley Special Printings."
