In 1988, the Citizens' Stamp Advisory Committee was looking for a way to give stamp users an alternative to the usual U.S. flag and the unknown Americans pictured on postage. Their solution was a colorful new series of "mini-scapes." These bright, cheerful designs pictured generic landscapes and vignettes of familiar objects and scenes. The first stamp in this series, which pictured a red and yellow beach umbrella, was also the first postcard-rate stamp to be issued only in booklet form for use by vacationers.

  • 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.
