U.S. #1151 was issued in Washington, D.C., on the same day as the South-East Asia Treaty Organization’s (SEATO) Sixth Annual Conference began. The conference, also held in Washington, D.C., included representatives from the nations that made up the defensive alliance: Australia, France, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
 
The Southeast Asia Collective Defense Treaty, sometimes called the Manila Pact, was established to prevent the spread of Communism in Southeast Asia. It was meant to be similar to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), although it didn’t have as strong a requirement for mutual defense. The stamp shows the principles of “Unity,” “Peace,” and “Progress,” as well as the organization’s emblem.

    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.
