United States Postal Department Created
As tensions grew between the colonies and England in 1775, the Continental Congress established the United States Postal Department and named Benjamin Franklin to be its first postmaster general. Franklin had served as the postmaster of Philadelphia and as Joint Postmaster General under England’s rule and brought considerable experience to his new position. During his tenure, Franklin standardized rates, surveyed routes, erected milestones along long-distance delivery routes, and slashed delivery time between major cities by half. The postal agency was headquartered in Philadelphia until the capitol was moved to Washington, D.C., in 1800.

  • 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.
