Fifty years ago, urged on by the horrors of the Second World War, fifty determined nations took a stand for peace and a better future… for their own generation and those to follow. They envisioned a world where all people could live free from fear and need, where human dignity and a better way of life were available to all mankind. And so on April 25, 1945, 13 days after the death of President Franklin Roosevelt and 12 days before the unconditional surrender of Germany, the representatives of these peace-seeking countries met in San Francisco. Hammering out a charter, they created an organization that had far-reaching powers and responsibilities. Six months later, on October 24, 1945, that historic charter went into effect and the United Nations was born.
 
Although vast changes in the past 50 years have presented unforeseen challenges, the U.N. has continued to promote international cooperation, advance the cause of the poor, defend human rights, oversee the repair of a damaged world environment, and restore peace among warring nations. Not only an occasion to look back on past achievements, the celebration of the 50th anniversary is also a chance to look toward the future as the U.N. begins to chart a course for the new century.

  • 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.
