1991 29¢ Flags on Parade
Issue Date: May 30, 1991
City: Waterloo, NY
Quantity: 607,370,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Photogravure
Perforations: 11
Color: Multicolored
 
In 1866, the town of Waterloo, New York, became the first to observe Memorial Day in remembrance of the soldiers who died during the American Civil War.
 
Today, Memorial Day, which became a federal holiday in 1971, honors all Americans who gave their lives for their country.
 
This particular stamp was issued to commemorate the 125th anniversary of that first Memorial Day celebration. The design features three American flags waving in the breeze.
 
Designer Peter Cocci adapted his original design at the Citizens' Stamp Advisory committee's suggestion to picture the flags lined up in a staggered formation as though they were passing a viewer of a parade.

  • 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.
