Hello everyone! I've been doing some research on the F rate make up stamp, and I was trying to find out who designed it. Through StampSmarter's 1847usa, I've determined that it was printed by American Bank Note. I just wonder if it was designed by an individual, a committee of some sort, or what have you. If anybody has any promising leads, I would appreciate it. Trying to put together a display/exhibit on rate changes/makeup stamps...something of that sort.

Thanks! I hope everyone is well!

re: F rate make up stamp

If you're referring to the actual make-up stamp, Scott 2521, that just has the text on it, and sold for $0.04, then, according to the Scott US Specialized, it was designed by Richard Sheaff.

re: F rate make up stamp

For the sake of completeness, the "F" rose stamp, Scott 2517-2520, was designed by Wallace Marosek, and the "F" flag stamp (self-adhesive), Scott 2522, was designed by Harry Zelenko.

Hope that helps!

I saw an extensive exhibit on this stamp a few years at the Central Florida Stamp show. It was very impressive.

re: F rate make up stamp

You should be able to readily find this information in APS's APRL. Designer information is pretty basic and not sure what resource information you have,

www.pnc3.org has information too. They have info from USPS press releases.

Are you looking for information of the "F", I would not call it a make up rate since it met the rate.

Example for F Rose.
