 US 1857 Adhesive Uses Minimize

In 1857 the US began issuing perforated stamps.  Initially the same designs and denominations that had appeared in 1851 in imperforate form made up the new issue.  However, with changes in rates and the need for higher values, this issue added a 24 cent, 30 cent and 90 cent issue.  The Scott catalog numbers included in this page listing are #24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 28A 29, 30, 30A, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37,38, and 39.  Many of these stamps have never been reported used from Arkansas.

Note, most auction catalog images are too small or blurry to make distinctions between Scott #26 and Scott #26a possible.  So all references to Scott #26 cover both these issues.

With only 4 year's use available before Arkansas seceded from the Union, the number of these covers extant is not large, and they are considered scarce with any stamp other than the 3 cent values.

New Cover images added 2016-08-10 Princeton Green Ink CDS to New Orleans and Little Rock year dated 1859 cover to Batesville.
