#3139a-40a – 1997 50¢ Franklin & Washington

Mint Stamps Commemorate 150th Anniversary of U.S. Postage Stamps

Now you can get a set of two mint 1997 50¢ and 60¢ stamps issued in honor of US #1 and US #2's 150th anniversary.  In 1847, these stamps paved the way for all future US issues and marked the beginning of US stamp collecting.  The 1997 50¢ stamp pictures the same design as US #1, a portrait of first US Postmaster General Benjamin Franklin, while the 60¢ stamp uses the design from US #2, a portrait of President George Washington.  Printed in blue and red ink, respectively, these patriotic stamps are fitting tributes to the stamps that changed US history.  The original 1847 stamps were printed in low quantities and are scarce today – not everyone can own them – but the 1997 commemoratives are the next best thing.  Send for your set now and get these history-filled designs in your collection.
