This is the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner” in 1814.  The flag flew over Fort McHenry, which guarded Baltimore, Maryland’s harbor, during a War of 1812 British naval bombardment.  After a night of ferocious fighting, Key found our “flag was still there.”  The original Fort McHenry flag now hangs in the Smithsonian Institution.

 

Fort McHenry was named for James McHenry, the representative from Maryland who signed the U.S. Constitution.  In 1939, it was made the Fort McHenry National Monument and Historic Shrine.

  • 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.
