This stamp, featuring Andrew Jackson, was reissued in 1875 with a change in color to vermilion. This alteration aimed to address confusion stemming from the similarity in color between the 1873 version of this stamp and the 10¢ Jefferson stamp.

According to the Assistant Postmaster General’s report, postal patrons and clerks encountered difficulties distinguishing between the 2¢ Jackson Bank Note stamps and the 10¢ Jefferson stamps.
