C231 US Presidents
Issue Date: January 20, 2005
Inspired by the U.S. Presidential Series stamps once used in the Marshall Islands, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued an up-to-date set of "Prexies" on January 20, 2005,
the U.S. Inaugural Day.
From 1945, when American troops liberated the Marshall Islands, until 1984, when the Marshalls issued its first postage stamps, Marshallese used U.S. stamps at U.S.
Post Offices throughout the islands. Among the most commonly-used stamps were the U.S. Presidential Series of 1938-39.
Known as the "Prexies," these regular issues depicted every
American President from George Washington (portrayed on the 1¢ green) to Calvin Coolidge (seen on red, brown and black $5).
Those 1938-39 Prexies inspired an up-to-date set of
Presidents of the United States stamps issued by the Marshall Islands Postal Service.
Maintaining historic continuity with the earlier stamps, these 2005 stamps are visually similar to the
original U.S. Prexies. But now, every U.S. President from George Washington to George W. Bush appears on his own stamp. Engravings by artists Gene Jarvis and Michael Halbert capture each
president in profile, and stamp denominations match the sequence of each man's presidency.
