The series of 1861-62 was released on August 17, 1861, to replace the demonetized stamps. The Portrait on the #73 “Black Jack” is Also Found on a Confederate Stamp! With the start of home delivery in 1862, a 2¢ stamp was needed. Scott #73 picturing our 7th President, Andrew Jackson, was issued. The famous stamp is known to collectors as “Black Jack” and also “Big Head,” since the portrait takes up so much space on the stamp. Curiously, an 1863 Confederate 2¢ stamp uses the same portrait – painted by Miner Kilbourne Kellop or a miniature by John Wood Dodge. So the U.S.A. and C.S.A. had 2¢ stamps with the same Jackson portrait during the Civil War!

Scott #77 is the first mourning stamp ever produced. This stamp is based on a photo of Lincoln taken by C.S. German in 1861, shortly before the 16th President was inaugurated. 24¢ #78 Stamp is Different from #70 George Washington is pictured on the 24¢ red lilac stamp in the issue of 1861-62 (Scott #70). Another 24¢ Washington, #78, was released on February 20, 1863. It has a darker lilac tone than #70 and should not be confused with the earlier stamp.
