1992 29¢ Wulfenite
Minerals
Issue Date: September 17, 1992

Quantity: 36,831,000
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing

Perforations: 11

In 1992, four minerals - azurite, copper, variscite, and wulfenite - were unearthed by the Postal Service to be featured on a set of stamps.
 
Azurite, named so because of its beautiful azure-blue color, and variscite, a semi-precious gemstone, are chiefly used in jewelry and other ornamental pieces.
 
Copper has been one of man’s most useful metals for almost 5,000 years.  In ancient times, the chief source of copper was found on the island of Cyprus, and it came to be known as Cyprian metal.  Today, our name and symbol (Cu) for copper come from the word “cuprum” – the Roman name for Cyprian metal.
 
Wulfenite is found in great quantities near Eastern Europe and South America.  This yellow-orange mineral forms a crystallized structure, giving it a jagged appearance.

  • 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.
