Interested in the US 15
They used to include design details, even the font selection, in the original announcements for the issuance of US Postage stamps. The US Postal Service has a record of those (certainly the National Archives would have them).
Of course, they have never used fonts - metal, digital, or otherwise, although they may have used patterns. Each stamp die, including the lettering, was hand-engraved.
Wow, thanks for the help Herb! Good to know.
