This Benjamin Franklin One cent stamp is a Type I and is the most complete design of all the types. Issued on Jan 1, 1861. The design is complete at top, bottom and sides but its hard to find well centered copies. The one cent stamp was required to pay the fee for drop letters and circulars under 500 miles. It was also the rate for newspapers.
