U.S. #1100 was issued in conjunction with a centennial celebration of the birth of noted horticulturalist Liberty Hyde Bailey. Bailey (1858-1954) founded the College of Agriculture at Cornell University in 1888, and was the dominant figure in the field of horticulture until his death on Christmas Day in 1954. He was also the co-founder of the American Society for Horticultural Science in 1903, and wrote 65 books on the subject.
 
This stamp was issued in Ithaca, New York – site of Cornell University. It marked the beginning of the Liberty Hyde Bailey Centennial Celebration. The first “Liberty Hyde Bailey Award” was issued that same year, to honor “great American gardeners.” The celebration – and stamp – came only three years after Bailey’s death.

    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.
