In 1981, postage increased to 20¢.  Once again, the stylized eagle design was used and the background color was changed to brown.  In addition to being printed in sheets and coils, the stamp was also issued in booklet format.  Rather than reprint the entire 1981 wildlife pane with the rate change, the Postal Service decided they would print only the bighorn sheep with the 20¢ denomination.  The color was changed from dark brown to dark blue.  However, these were the only two changes made.  This particular issue was printed only in booklet form. Another stamp in this set honors wise shoppers.  During her husband’s term as President, Rosalyn Carter began a consumer education program to teach Americans how to create a budget and stretch their shopping dollars.  Late in 1978, she began petitioning for a consumer education stamp to make the public more aware of her program.  Because she mainly targeted minorities, such as Hispanics and African-Americans, she wanted two stamps printed – one in English and another in Spanish.  The stamp’s production was held up for several years while the Postal Service and the Citizen’s Stamp Advisory Committee deliberated as to whether the U.S. should begin printing stamps bi-lingually.  Eventually, it was decided that the stamp would be released only in English.  The stamp was issued in 1982, after President Carter had left office.

  • 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.
