Printed on gravure presses instead of intaglio, this stamp had an appearance different from the original version (U.S. #2453). Not only was the gravure image less-clearly defined, but the coated paper used gave the stamp a glossy surface. The typeface was made bolder and was extended, and the design and lettering were printed in red instead of brown.
 
U.S. #2454 is part of the popular Transportation Series. The Transportation Series contains 59 stamps with engraved designs featuring modes of transportation from the baby buggy to the racecar.

  • 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.
