Since the 1963 5¢ Flag Over the White House issue, the USPS has continued to picture the American flag on its most commonly used stamp - the first-class definitive. Printed in sheets, coils, and booklets, these stamps carry the majority of our nation's mail. In fact, the Flag definitives are printed and sold in far greater quantity than any other U.S. issues. This stamp was the first to be perforated on the BEP's new Eureka perforator, which punched the sheets with perfect bull's-eye perforations.

  • 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.
