New York City Hosts Its Third World’s Fair
World’s Fairs are international expositions that showcase commerce, industry, and science, as well as providing entertainment and cultural activities.  The 1964-65 fair’s theme was “Peace Through Understanding” and was dedicated to “Man’s Achievement on a Chinking Globe in an Expanding Universe.”  
 
The fair ran from April 22 to October 18, 1964 and April 21 to October 17, 1965. Held in Queens’ Flushing Meadows Corona Park, it was one of the largest World’s Fairs held in the U.S. at nearly one square mile. In all, more than 51 million people visited the fair, where exhibits dealing with the Space Age were one of the main attractions.

  • 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.
