1993 29¢ American Circus
Issue Date: April 6, 1993
City: Washington, DC
Quantity: 65,625,000
Printed By: Ashton-Potter America
Printing Method: Lithographed
Perforations: 11

This colorful block of four was issued to honor the 200th anniversary of the first circus performance in the U.S., which was held in Philadelphia in 1793.
 
Named after the circular arenas of ancient Rome, early circuses featured equestrian riders, acrobats, and clowns. In 1871, P.T. Barnum established his own circus, thus beginning the golden age of circuses. He later joined with James A. Bailey in 1881, and in 1907, their show was combined with the Ringling Brothers' to create the "greatest show on earth" - the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

  • 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.
