Since there are Lincoln collectors here, I thought I would post my
used copy of Scott #77, the 15c black Lincoln stamp issued in 1866.
The black color was chosen since the nation was still in mourning.
President Lincoln had recently been assasinated by John Wilkes Booth
at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C., in April of 1865.
