Full Answer

Over 130 billion Thomas Jefferson stamps were printed from 1938 to 1939. The pale to dark violet stamps were widely used through the 1950s, since a single stamp could mail a first-class domestic envelope from July 1, 1932, until July 31, 1958. One 3-cent stamp also paid the international postcard fee, which was in effect from July 9, 1934, until July 31, 1958. The stamp also could be used in mailing letters to South America and Spain, which cost 3 cents per ounce between Oct. 4, 1932, through Oct. 31, 1953.
