FLAT-PLATE PRESS. Used by the Bureau for all stamps until 1914, and all sheet stamps until 1921. It was used to print the Series of 1894, the Series of 1902, most of the Washington-Franklins, and the early issues of the Series of 1922. It also saw duty on many stamps for years afterward, including the dollar values of the Presidential Issue of 1938.
