Mint never hinged sheet of fifty 3-cent US postage stamps honoring Francis Scott Key. Stamps may be used for mailing, but will require additional postage to make up the current first class rate.

These stamps were issued in honor of Francis Scott Key, author of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Each stamp is 0.84 by 1.44 inches in dimension, arranged horizontally, printed by the rotary process, in red, electric-eye perforated, and issued in sheets of 50 subjects. The central design is a portrait of Francis Scott Key in an oval, below which appears the name in white Gothic on a dark background. Draped on the left and right sides of the portrait are the American flags of the period of 1814 and 1948, respectively. In the lower left-hand corner is the old Key home and in the lower right is Fort McHenry with dark Gothic lettering on ribbons identifying each. Above
the central design is the dark Gothic lettering “U. S. Postage,” to the left and right of which is the denomination “3” in the same style.

This stamp was first placed on sale at Frederick, Md., on August 9, 1948.
