Paper Switch. At the time of the postal rate change, the demand for the 1-cent stamps was higher than anticipated, and the supply of the 1-cent stamps printed on Harrison paper was exhausted. In order to meet operational needs for 1-cent stamps quickly, it was necessary to print the 1-cent stamp on the only available postage stamp paper—Clark paper—and to print the entire quantity as “field stock” (no marginal inscriptions in the borders of the panes).
