This stamp was issued to celebrate the 350th anniversary of America’s commercial shipbuilding industry, which began at Popham Colony, Maine, in 1607. The Popham Colony was located near the present-day Bath Iron Works. The stamp shows the Virginia of Sagadahock, the first American ship used in international trade. This ship was a 50-foot, 30-ton boat – at that time quite an impressive vessel. Built for trade and commerce, the Virginia of Sagadahock marked the start of Maine’s long tradition of shipbuilding.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
