LIBERTY ISSUE (1954-1960)
Scott #1030-#1059A

Note to Collectors: With this issue, the Bureau of engraving started printing on "dry"
paper with moisture content of 5-10%. With the previous "wet" printings, the moisture
content was 15-35%. Several stamps in this series are printed with both the wet and dry
process. The new "dry" process uses a thicker, stiffer white paper with a higher sheen.
The design stands out more clearly.

IF THERE IS NO LISTING OF WET OR DRY, THEN IT IS DRY.
Stamps with both wet and dry are: 1030 (1/2c), 1031 (1c), 1035 (3c),
1036 (4c), 1039 (6c), 1049-52 (30c-$1), and Coil issues:
1054 (1c), 1055 (2c), 1057 (3c), and1058 (4c)

Also, on the COIL ISSUES, there was a change in plate size, and the size of the
perforation holes was reduced. While both are perf. 10, the later holes are
smaller than the paper between them. This is most apparent on the coil pairs.
These varieties have been listed for completeness.
