This Monroe 10c (issued in 1927) certainly looks more yellow or gold than its official color tag of orange. I don’t recall ever seeing one that was truly orange to my eyes.
This 10c value is the highest in the 1926-1934 series.
James Monroe was the 5th President of the United States. Most people probably identify him with the Monroe Doctrine which in general stated that Europe should not colonize anymore in the Americas and that the United States would remain neutral in any European wars.
