The original stamps were issued on October 10, 1934, in souvenir sheets of six stamps each. They are imperforate and gummed. The reprint of the special printing (Scott #769), ungummed and imperforate, in panes of 20 souvenir sheets, was issued on March 15, 1935.
This example of the original special printing bears one inscription on the left selvage:
“To Betty, Ann and James Farley from their Dad./ This is the second sheet of the souvenir sheet/of the one cent Yosemite stamps issued Oct. 4, 1934/ James A. Farley, Postmaster General”
October 4, 1934 was the date of printing; October 10, 1934 was the date of issue to the public.
On the selvage is the autograph “Franklin D Roosevelt”
