Postmaster Provisional Stamp of 1846
Only 2 Available!

On July 1, 1845, the U.S. Congress established uniform postal rates.  But the first postage stamps didn’t appear until March 3, 1847, so the Postmaster General authorized Postmaster Provisional stamps to be issued temporarily at twelve different post offices around the country.  Postmaster Provisional stamps are among the major rarities of the philatelic world and are sought after by collectors around the globe.
This stamp (Scott #10X1) was first issued on August 24, 1846 in Providence, Rhode Island.  At the five-cent rate, it secured delivery of a letter weighing a half-ounce or less for any distance under 300 miles.  For a distance over 300 miles, the rate was 10¢.  The rate also went up five cents for each additional half ounce.
