As a member of the House of Representatives, James Garfield supported black suffrage, congressional reconstruction, and the impeachment of President Andrew Johnson. Garfield is the subject of the 6¢ 1890-93 Regular Issue stamp.

Although similar in design to the previous issues, the 1890-93 Series was smaller in size and featured new colors.

The 1890-93 Regular Issue stamps were the last issues printed by the American Bank Note Company for 50 years. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing was awarded exclusive control of stamp production until the 1943 Overrun Nations.
