In addition to being a superb diplomat and a brilliant political thinker, Thomas Jefferson was the foremost American architect of his time. He designed the Virginia Capitol, the University of Virginia, and his home, Monticello. Jefferson is the subject of the 30¢ 1890-93 Regular Issue stamp.

Although similar in design to the previous issues, the 1890-93 Series was smaller in size and featured new colors.

The 1890-93 Regular Issue stamps were the last issued printed by the American Bank Note Company for 50 years. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing was awarded exclusive control of stamp production until the 1943 Overrun Nations.
