Perforation: 12
Color: Pale Red Brown

In March 1883, Congress passed an act that lowered the First Class mail rate from 3¢ per half ounce to 2¢ per half ounce, thus creating the need for new 2¢ and 4¢ stamps. The new lower rate dramatically increased the volume of mail. This stamp was also issued when the lower postage rate went into effect, and was used to pay postage on double-weight letters (letters weighing one ounce). Both stamps were widely used and fairly common today.

  • 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.
