John Zukerman – The Census of the Five-Cent 1856 Jefferson

Apr 1 , 1998

John Zuckerman, speaking on the five cent 1856 issue, gave a very interesting and enlightening presentation to our group in April. John described how he went about compiling his rather extensive census of the five cent issue, including the various sources of records. He also showed us slides of a good number of covers, including those with multiple copies of this elusive stamp. John’s slides also illustrated many unusual destinations and scarce usages of the five cent stamp.
