In 1911, Albert Schoenhut, a German-born Philadelphia toymaker, patented his “All-Wood Perfection Art Doll.” Made entirely of wood and fully jointed with steel springs, the dolls could hold virtually any lifelike pose. In 1919, he introduced the “walkable” doll that featured legs that swung from the hip in a walking motion. A. Schoenhut & Company was also one of the many companies to produce interchangeable heads and bodies – a practice which greatly increased the variety of its dolls.
 
Often promoted for their realism, Schoenhut’s dolls were well known for their expressive features. In fact, one advertisement claimed that the doll’s head was “artistically modeled in real character style, more natural and lifelike than anything ever attempted.” Most of the dolls represented babies or children, and were commonly produced with Germanic features that reflected the heritage of their maker.

  • 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.
