With the issuance of this stamp, the USPS went back to the established pattern of displaying the American flag over a national landmark. This time, instead of picturing a Washington building such as the Capitol or the White House, a natural landmark from the opposite coast was chosen. Half Dome, a granite formation which rises 4,850 feet above the Merced River, is exactly what its name implies: a massive rock dome which appears as though it was split by a colossal cleaver. Visitors frequently ask, "What happened to the other half?" (The answer: "No one knows.") Indian legends say it is a wife who turned to stone as she fled from her husband, and the dark streaks down the face of the rock are her tears.

  • 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.
