U.S. #1154
1960 4¢ Pony Express Centennial
 
Issue Date: July 19, 1960
City: Sacramento, California
Quantity: 119,665,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Rotary Press
Perforations:  11 x 10 ½
Color: Sepia
 
U.S. #1154 commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Pony Express. Now a famous chapter in the lore of the Old West, the Pony Express was a high-speed (for the time) mail service from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California.
 
The Pony Express used relays of men and horses to deliver mail in less than half the time required by other delivery methods. The Express operated for a year and a half – until the opening of the transcontinental telegraph made it unnecessary. Despite its fame, the Pony Express was a financial failure.
 
An estimated 400 horses were used during the company’s operation. Riders typically rode stretches of 80 to 100 miles at a time, changing horses about every 10 miles at stations along the route.
