U. S. #1113 shows Abraham Lincoln without a beard – different from the more common bearded images. Lincoln was the first U. S. President to have a beard. He grew it after being elected, perhaps on the advice of an 11-year-old girl. Four stamps were issued for the Lincoln Sesquicentennial Series. George Peter Alexander Healy’s 1860 painting from life, “Beardless Lincoln,” is pictured on this first stamp.
