The Girl Scouts of America 50th anniversary stamp, U.S. #1199, was issued while the Third Girl Scout Senior Roundup was underway in Button Bay, Vermont. The Roundup events were held at three-year intervals from 1956-65, but have not otherwise been regularly scheduled like Boy Scout Jamborees have. The stamp was issued in Burlington, Vermont, about 30 miles north of Button Bay.
 
The Girls Scouts were first organized in Savannah, Georgia, in 1912. The movement uses the “Scouting Method,” popularized by its predecessor, the Boy Scouts, to teach girls values such as honesty, courage, and citizenship. The organization has over 3.5 million members.

  • 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.
