US Stamp Issues of 1898
Regular Issues of 1898-1903
In 1898 the colors of many of the regularly issued stamps were changed to conform with the colors assigned by the Universal Postal Union.
The one cent stamp was changed to green in January, the five cent to blue in March and later the ten cents to brown and the fifteen cents to olive green to avoid confusion with the lower denominations. The four cent stamp was given slight rose hue.
