U.S. #1203
1962 4¢ Dag Hammarskjold
 
Issue Date: October 23, 1962
City: New York, New York
Quantity: 121,440,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Giori Press
Perforations:  11
Color: Black, brown and yellow
 
U.S. #1203 was issued in honor of United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold, who had died in a plane crash a year earlier. Hammarskjold (1905-61), of Sweden, was the second Secretary-General of the U.N., and the only person to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize after his death. U.S. President John F. Kennedy called Hammarskjold “the greatest statesman of our century.”
 
This stamp is also notable for an invert error that occurred, which caused the yellow background to be inverted – most obviously with a white “shadow” next to the United Nations building in the design. The error led the postmaster general to authorize a special printing, resulting in U.S. #1204.

  • 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.
