U.S. #1208
1963-66 5¢ 50-Star Flag 
 
Issue Date: January 9, 1963
City: Washington, D.C.
Quantity: 3,066,890,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Giori Press
Perforations:  11
Color: Blue and red
 
U.S. #1205 was the first stamp to meet the increased 5¢ domestic letter rate. Featuring the American Flag, it is also the only U.S. definitive or commemorative stamp not to have any lettering at all on it, although it does show the denomination that went into effect two days before it was issued.
 
This stamp is one of the few U.S. stamps that doesn’t note the country that issued it, although the image of the flag makes it clear. Earlier in the year, Postmaster General J. Edward Day had noted that “only precedent” suggested that “U.S.,” or “U.S.A.,” or some other sign of nationality should be included.
